“Authenic Vintage Flavor without that worn feeling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2011

This past weekend was our second visit to Hotel Seward. Again we were very very pleased and left with the feeling of looking forward to our next visit. Thought we should share this time.The Christmas decorations were a delight. Tasteful with that Old Fashioned Traditional feeling. They even have a Gingerbread House Display in one of the smaller rooms for people to visit. It is easy to see all the LOVE that goes into this property. Hotel Seward has a Dog Friendly wing on the lower level that was very nice. This hotel is clean and cared for. The staff extremely helpful, friendly and very welcoming. Yummm.m.- we ate in the dining room. Gene. Oh my goodness! The BEST Halibut Cheeks we have ever tasted. Amazing. The menue changes. I am guessing that's because they buy based on what is fresh and available. You will not be disappointed.Creative and delicious! Four of us dined and everyone loved their meal. This qauint property is worth the trip to Seward on it's own. Fantastic!

Room Tip: If you're a couple on your own, ask for a romantic room in upper level, with a view. So beautifu...

The Hotel Seward is a beautiful and charming little place; in many ways, it improves on the generally more honky-tonk character of the town it's in. First of all, the staff went out of their way to be helpful to us, setting up several reservations in the area, and offering good advice on local attractions. I'd have given the hotel 5 stars on service, except that one staffer seemed to be slacking, and forgot to arrange to have our bags returned to the train. One of the owners drove them to us, apologizing greatly for what was only a minor inconvenience. The rooms are comfortable, the beds were rather nice, and the restaurant, though small, was stylish and provided very good food (except that the salmon was WAY oversalted). The lobby and hallways are fun, with all sorts of stuffed animals on the walls, plus dozens and dozens of historical pictures and maps, particularly with info on the devastating 1964 quake. The location is ideal, just a short walk to the Sealife Center, and only a block to all sorts of local eateries (almost none of which compare to the hotel's own restaurant). The last morning we were there, we wound up eating breakfast in one of the little themed rooms down the hall -- kind of a Victorian room -- which was a sweet way to enjoy a turkey-sausage and vegetable omelette for me, and for my wife and daughter to savor the place's homemade oatmeal, with blueberries and honey.

Charming hotel. Friendly staff. Very good atmosphere. Typical alaskan decoration with an hunting environment. There are a lot of stuffed animals in the hall. Nice bedroom (in Alaskan wing) which is a little dated but it's the theme of that historic hotel ! Room and bathroom clean. The bed was comfortable. There is a charming bar (small but with a very good ambiance) where you can have dinner, breakfast and if you want just a drink. A lot of alaskan specialties. If it will be possible, we'll give a special award to Seward Hotel just for it's breakfast : we had a great crab omelette ! It was delicious :). Hotel well located near the ocean but no private parking. We think it's a little expensive (for example breakfast is not included in the important price of the room) but we have loved this very special and historic place !

I've taken my family to Seward for 4 years now. This is our first stay at the Hotel Seward, and what a great hotel! Nice change from our previous place. Hotel Seward is very conveniently located, with nice clean rooms. The hotel staff was very nice, and willing to accomodate our requests. The history of the hotel only added to the charm of the place, and lent a great opportunity to learn a bit more about Seward. We will definitely stay at Hotel Seward on our next trip to Seward!

I have been to Seward many times, first stay at this hotel. I love it!!! Beautiful rooms, old world charm. The restaurant is excellent, reasonably priced. Ask to eat in one of the "themed" rooms, quaint and FUN. The staff was attentive and very welcoming. Chase at the front desk went out of his way to help us.. True Alaskan hospitality. Without a doubt, nicest hotel in Seward. Also near SeaLife center, shops, restaurants, but eat there.
