Stayed in a cute little historic room with bath on second floor. Updated and very comfortable. No elevator and stairs are steep so plan accordingly. Best price in town, very helpful and friendly staff. Good location in town, across fro SeaLife Center and walking path around town.

A great community of people here. Best Western recommended here because they accept dogs. Grateful for the recommendation, upon walking in you are embraced by the incredible history of this town and all the great people it took to create it.

My lady and I spent a wonderful January weekend here. Because of the time of year we basically had the beautiful Hotel Seward to ourselves. The front desk agent gave us a very nice warm greeting. The lobby is great, such personality and charm. Our room was perfect, clean and inviting. Hotel Seward is in a perfect location, walking distance...

We had the big corner room with the excellent view, a fireplace, plush antique looking chairs, and art deco lamp shades. The room was comfortable and quiet, and the staff was all friendly and helpful. We met the owners as we left, very nice people. Highly recommend!

We had a terrific meal one evening and met lots of interesting people in the restaurant. Food and service are top rate, there is a lot of original art and period photography all over the restaurant. The staff will let you walk around and take pictures, and it was their great attitudes that brought us back for dinner.

Stay in this hotel for an authentic Alaskan experience with perks. This is a nicely restored historic hotel in the best location in Seward. The extended family that operates the hotel are an Alaskan treasure on to themselves. Great service, no request too small. Rides to and from train station and drop sites for tours, no problem. Keep your sense...

Room was quite comfortable but there are issues with the plumbing this is probably due to the age of the building. Housekeeping leaves a lot to be desired, items found in draws, namely a big bag of medication from the previous occupant, the attitude of staff when this was brought to their attention.

Hotel Seward is a look back into hospitality before it became commercial. It is not a chain hotel and still maintains personal touches that make you feel like a valued guest. The staff was warm and friendly, they went out of their way to interact with the guests and make us feel welcome. I slept great, which rarely happens in...
