Loved this hotel! The views from our room were stunning. I think that rooms facing either side will have great views, but ours in the picture was facing the entry / front of the hotel. The hiking trail options behind the hotel were a blast,...More
Girdwood is a funky, semi-planned community about 40 miles west (and south) of the Anchorage airport. The Aleyska Resort sits above, and a bit removed, from the town in its own grounds (some 1500 acres) abutting the Chugach Mountains. It is truly an impressive property....both...More
Tasteful elegance throughout the property. Beautiful scenic grounds, warm and elegant decor, fun amenities like a gorgeous indoor pool and huge hot tub make this a special place (and it's the only ski resort in Alaska!). Our beds were comfy, our shower hot and spacious,...More

Carrie, I am assuming that you are talking about the Northern Lights and if so, it is possible but rare. I agree with a couple of the folks that responded about driving up the road a bit to get a better view. I think the absolute best place is north of Anchorage. Good luck and I hope that you get to see them because they are truly amazing!!
