The actual hotel was a surprise, big room lots of room. Advertised as a glacier view room, but in reality the window is a small opening. The hotel services the icefield and glacier trips which gets really busy from around 10.30 with tour buses so do the ice trip early. The downside to this hotel is the food. The Cafe that services the tourists closes at 6.30 so the only option after that is hthe dining room which is overpriced and disgusting. Breakfast was included as a la carte, which would be fine except is was uneadible.given the hotel is literally in the middle of nowhere they have the monopoly and they could really make a name for themselves withva great dining experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Glacier View Inn is a model of environmentally sensitive design, built to incorporate the pristine environment that it surrounds. There are 32 guest rooms - most have at least two queen beds and a loft. All are well appointed, with satellite TV, and direct dial phones. Many rooms offer spectacular views of surrounding mountains and glaciers but you should make sure to request a room with a view early as these are the first to go. Most rooms are well suited for families needing more space than a conventional hotel room, as well as traditional sized rooms for couples or individuals. Open April through October. ... more less
