    My folks are going on a cruise from Whittier down to Vancouver in June. Any suggestions for a good hotel stay the night before embarking on their cruise the next day?

    We did the cruise the other way. Finishing in Whittier. We stayed in Anchorage and used a shuttle to the port at Whittier. There are a lot more choices in Anchorage than in Whittier. (I seem to remember only one or two very expensive hotels in Whittier and they looked like the Architecture was from Czechoslavakia circa 1968.)

    But the best place close to Whittier and not in Anchorage would be the Alyeska Resort about halfway. It really is a world class resort (with the appropriate pricing.)

    But on our next Alaskan Cruise, we will probably stay in Anchorage again. Just a nice city with decent restaurants and surprisingly decent prices for food and lodging.
