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... More

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.

Dear Guest, I apologize that you had any issue when you where here in June. Unfortunately plumbing can be an issue that can only be fixed when the problem occur. We do try to fix them as quickly as possible, but if we cannot get it to repeat it may take more then 1 try. We always try to do... More

We organized a team retreat at the Hotel Seward and set it up through the owner Mary. She was very personable and had everything ready on time, with welcome signs. Breakfast was reported to be delicious and the meeting room was clean, well stocked and well lit. Our meetings were productive and everything about the stay was enjoyable. Would highly... More

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... More

Had a fantastic time during our staff retreat in Sept. Front desk was freindly, the waiter in the restaurant was delightful and love the chocolates in the room. Mary is amazing and I can't wait to go back!

We stayed at the Hotel Seward recently (mid-September 2014) for a group meeting and I can't say enough good things about this hotel. In particular, I brought my dog (under 25 lbs) and we had a pet room. My experience is usually hit and miss with Pet Rooms, but I in no way felt like I was getting less than... More

We held a retreat at the Hotel Seward for a staff of 20+. Everyone was very happy with their rooms, breakfast was fantastic and our meeting room was perfect. The hotel crew were always wonderful to work with, very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed being with in walking distance of everything, and even when we needed a quick ride to... More

Had a great experience for a 3 night stay in September '14. Had one of the rooms with a shared bathroom in the old part of the hotel. Was perfectly comfortable and a good price at $70 per night. The salmon I got at their restaurant was some of the best I've ever had. They provided excellent advice on other... More

My husband and I stayed here while visiting Steward. The location is close to the water and great places to eat. You can also walk to the museum from the hotel. The only complaint was lumpy pillows. I would give it a five if the just replaced the pillows.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at the Hotel Seward and at dinner twice at Gene's Place. It was a very nicely run historic hotel and we met Mary the owner a few times during our stay. She was very welcoming and told us of the history of the hotel. We ate dinner on two occasions in the... More
