Airlines providing service to ANC include:
Conference attendees must arrange for their own transportation to and from Anchorage to The Alyeska Hotel in Girdwood. It is an approximately 1 hour drive from the Ted Stevens International Airport to the hotel. There are several modes of transport.
Rental cars are available at the airport. Reservations are advised. The conference date is set after the close of the tourist season so there is no need to anticipate elevated rates.
Taxi cabs are also available. They will hold up to three people and reasonable luggage. The one-way fare to Girdwood from the airport is $95.00. If planning to take a taxi to return from Girdwood to the airport after the conference, you must make this arrangement in advance. If you are a guest at The Hotel Alyeska, arrangements can be made through the concierge.
Mini vans that hold up to 12 passengers can be arranged through the concierge at The Hotel Alyeska if you are a guest. The round trip cost is $250.00. The hotel will not arrange vans for less than three people.
If you are not a guest at The Hotel Alyeska, we suggest you contact the Anchorage Convention and Visitors Bureau for all arrangements other than taxi cabs and car rentals.
