People LOVE this Girdwood vacation rental! Just take a look:

Amazing hotel, wonderful room and great view of Mt. Alyeska. Great restaurant on top of the mountain. Good restaurants in the hotel and really friendly staff at bar. We enjoyed the time we spent here and felt like we were in a Swiss village. We booked a helicopter ride from this hotel and it was the most awesome experience. If ever back in Alaska, I will be back. Highly recommend this beautiful establishment....

The bed was so comfortable I could have lived in it.
-- Lard Belly E,
It was a great hotel! We hiked down from top of the mountain it was beautiful. If you stay in Girdwood you should stay at the Alyeska. It was the best hotel I stayed at in Alaska. I had a great time there.
-- Riley C,
I have stayed her 3 times over 3 years and am always impressed with the ambiance and service. The rooms are very Euro-decor , with rich wood trim, down comforters, towel warmers, turn down service and chocolates...everything but a microwave. The only thing I would add to the other reviews is that the staff is always top notch. They are super friendly, professional and helpful. For instance - I had a room with two beds and only wanted one, so I asked and they found me a king room. Then, the new room was really hot and I could see the thermostat was broke. The desk agent moved me again with just a phone call and without even uttering a sigh of discontent. Very cool. I don't sleep well in hotels, even the nicest ones, so sometimes I get "picky". I try hard not to, but it happens, and the desk guy handled bitchy ME without a problem! Gorgeous views from both sides of the hotel
