Excellent facility. Although it is mainly for the winter skiing season, we stayed during the summer cruise season. Many things to do. Tram, hiking and of course skiing in the winter (which wasn't happening in August though. LOL) Beautiful setting in the Alaska mountains. I completely understand why it is #1 in Alaska. :)

We visited during the "off-season", loved the resort overall. The restaurants were of varying quality, and on the pricier side. Rooms were a bit dated, but very clean. Staff overall super nice and helpful. Only complaint is that the line at the front desk was flat out insane at times. Took us about 40 minutes to check in and a...

All the customer service is excellent! But I wanted to especially mention the valet parking staff, Kevin, who saw that I left my iPhone on my front seat and brought it back to me in the hotel. Extra care like that matters to me! The Tram staff on Friday night also went above and beyond to make my visit pleasant....

I was unimpressed and unhappy with the room service. It was overpriced, the presentation was poor, our coffee/tea came up travel cups instead of real mugs, and the food was less than mediocre. In addition, the second night we requested champagne glasses be sent up to our room that we never received. The tram was down due to winds, which...

Large hotel ski destination. Friendly helpful staff. Fantastic scenery. Great drive from Anchorage. Comfortable beds. Towel warmers in bath by tub. Great hikes and walking. Good nooks for storing out door equipment or skies. Restaurants good but not great. Can get a little rowdy on big skiing weekends. A place where Alaskans love to play.

This resort feels like you're in a real life snow globe. Perfect in every way, i.e. the staff, room, entry, dining, views, skiing, hikes, etc. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend getaway with my friends.

The convenience of having a valet to park my car and get it for me was so helpful. Besides the beautiful views outside the swimming pool was beautiful and no chlorine. The reindeer sausage was the best I had in Alaska. Riding the tram and talking to skiers and snowboarders was a new experience. They were all a happy exciting...
