Girdwood Lodging

A former mining community, Girdwood is only 40 minutes from Anchorage, but feels a world away. This small-town bustles during the winter ski season and the summer months thanks to an abundance of trails, scenery, and festivals celebrating its local outdoor culture. If a step away from the "big city" of Anchorage sounds appealing, or if you would like a stop on the way to or from the Kenai Peninsula, Girdwood is the place to go.

The primary lodging option in Girdwood is The Hotel Alyeska, located at the east end of the Alyeska ski resort. This luxurious property offers mountain scenery from every room and amenities like onsite dining, a spa, saltwater pool, and access to area trails. Don't miss a chance to ride the tram to the top of Mount Alyeska to take in the sweeping views of Turnagain Arm and seven named glaciers on the surrounding mountaintops.
