Whether the mountains are packed with snow, or the summer sun is burning bright into the midnight hour, Alyeska Resort is a year-round mecca for nature lovers. Located an hour from Anchorage in the small resort town of Girwood, it’s the nicest hotel by far for miles, surrounded by old-growth forests, hanging glaciers and spectacular wildlife.

In the winter months, skiers hit the slopes out front and return to earthy décor and cosy mountain-style rooms with heated towel racks and warm bathrobes. By summer -- when daylight lasts up to 20 hours -- hiking and biking trails (for both beginners and the more advanced) wind through the Chugach Mountains outside. For further expeditions, the friendly concierge staff are happy to plan river rafting, glacier cruises, float plane rides and helicopter tours.

Even those who prefer the indoors will find the setting spectacular, and can pass the time in the saltwater pool, take yoga or get a nature-inspired treatment at the spa. The best views are found at the 2,300-foot-high AAA 4-Diamond Seven Glaciers Restaurant, which offers a special-occasion ambiance and seafood dishes that TripAdvisor users consistently rave about. Reservations are recommended. Get there by riding the scenic aerial tram with views for miles in all directions. The aerial tram is closed Oct. 13 - Nov. 25.

The resort is rather isolated, and getting to town requires a five-minute drive, but guests can choose from a few other restaurants and bars on site.The resort offers a free shuttle to the town of Girdwood, which is approximately two miles away. Anchorage is approximately 40 miles from the resort.

The location.

The room and custom service were mediocre. I had to ask for my free extras and almost weren't given to me. Front desk said they don't usually give free tickets through 3rd party sites even though I clearly had my travelzoo email. Front desk was also rude about me asking for a room upgrade. The room I was given, the tub didn't drain well at all and when called room service to ask to bring us ice, they told us to go to the restaurant ourselves. For the price, this was all a disappointment.

This clearly is a multi-day destination both summer and winter. We wish we could have stayed longer. The staff was very friendly and the accommodations were the best of all the places we visited while in Alaska.

We enjoyed the aerial tram and amazing views! We were also fortunate enough to have a close up viewing of a black bear and her 3 cubs right at the base of the tram!! We also loved hiking the trail back to the hand tram! Very unique experience.... And absolutely beautiful!!
