While other cities see new hotels pop up seemingly out of nowhere, the Anchorage hotel scene has remained rather consistent over the years. Most of the major chains are represented, and there are some strong independents as well. Anchorage is also home to many B&Bs. If you're traveling without a car, consider staying Downtown, where the hotels are just steps away from shops and restaurants. Reservations at least a week ahead are a must for the major hotels, especially during the summer months.

The Hotel Alyeska
The Hotel Alyeska
Most rooms have stunning views of the Chugach Mountains and the lush forests surrounding this large and luxurious hotel at the base of Alyeska Ski Resort in Girdwood, 40 miles south of Anchorage. Room perks include heated towel racks, ski-boot storage lockers, and bathrobes. Guests relax in front of the big lobby fireplace, with tall windows facing the mountains. The large heated saltwater pool is a major attraction for families, and the hot tub is a hit after a day on the slopes. Dining choices include the Aurora Bar & Grill, featuring casual dining and bar seating, and Sakura Restaurant, featuring fresh seafood and a sushi bar. A spectacular aerial tram (free if you have dinner reservations) transports diners to the spectacular Seven Glaciers Restaurant at the 2,300-foot level on the mountain. The Spa at Alyeska can help undo any knots or aches brought on by adventures on the mountain. In winter, you can ask for an aurora wake up call.
