Even though hotels are everywhere around us, we rarely consider their essential role in our modern existence and how they help frame our sense of who and what we are.
It wasn’t until 1897, when gold seekers came to Valdez to follow the “All American Route” over the Valdez Glacier into the Interior of Alaska, that the first accommodation was thought of. A Tent City sprang up at the head of the bay, thus, with it our little town of Valdez was formed.
More than simply structures made of steel, concrete, and glass, Valdez hotels are social, and encourage your senses – from the smells coming from the restaurant to the visual explosion before you of the Chugach Mountains that surround Valdez.
These alluring places uniquely capture the realities of our world – visually treasure hunt for history; art and cultural works found within our hotels. Enjoy a drink or two downstairs within the Bars that accommodate craft Alaskan Brews – or devour the local seafood on any given night.
Hotels are open year-round but Summer is the busiest time, and without Reservations you may be the one thinking about a tent city again……
