Juneau provides a gateway to Alaska’s greatest adventures, whether you’re hoping to marvel at stunning blue glaciers, spot a whale breaching, or reel in your own Pacific salmon. Nearby hotels keep the state’s wild past in mind, with hints of the frontier town coming through without compromising modern age comforts. Experience the wild natural beauty of Alaska first-hand – from towering mountains to icy blue glaciers. These are the best places to stay in Juneau.

Black Bear Inn

Four miles from downtown Ketchikan, the Black Bear Inn is the only luxury waterfront inn in the area. There are four suites, each with private entrances, fireplaces, and, often, ocean views. Alternatively, book a one-bedroom condo or The Bunkhouse cabin for a little more privacy. Inside the main building, you’ll find a hand-built fireplace and a game library. But don’t skip the experience of bringing the day’s catch back to the outdoor kitchen, which is set to steam fish or cook crab, dining with a water view, and kicking back by the firepit.

Built by indigenous Alaskans, right at the rim of the Tongass National Forest’s stretches of cedars, hemlocks, and spruces, this lodge brings just enough rustic sensibilities to its rooms to remind you that you’re at the edge of the wilderness. Native art and artifacts are displayed in the lobby, and the tlingit (pronounced klin-kit) tradition of sharing abundance spills over into the hotel restaurant menu. Think cedar plank salmon, reindeer sausage, and fries dripping with candied bacon and cheddar.

Crisp, clean furnishings in these rooms leave the massive ocean views to do the talking. Stay steps from the marina and the Golden Square Mile’s shops, restaurants, and museums. Pile the whole crew into one of the enormous booths at McGivneys Sports Bar Grill for can’t-miss cocktails and crabcakes. The 24-hour fitness center is stocked with stationary bikes and treadmills for those still seeking an aerobic boost after whale watching or browsing the history and art exhibits at the Alaska State Museum.

This gold-rush era home was restored to a bed and breakfast with individually appointed rooms — keep an eye out for wallpaper designed in the 1800s and original fir wood floors, as well as whirlpool tubs and in-floor radiant heat. The owners live in this four-story house and devote attention to cooking breakfast with fresh-caught Alaskan crab, orchestrating a hiking tour of the nearby rainforest, or simply pointing weary legs in the direction of the rocking chair or garden hammock for some respite.

    This 215-room downtown hotel greets you with a chic, urban feel. Westmark Baranhof is just a short walk to the state capitol building and the Goldbelt Mount Roberts Tramway, which soars 1,800 feet to Mount Roberts’ summit in a jaw-dropping five minutes. At the top, drink in views of Admiralty Island’s peaks, the Chilkat Mountains, and Gastineau Channel. Borrow a motorized boat from the hotel to take in the sights from water level and rest up in the land of the midnight sun by drawing blackout curtains closed at the day’s end.
