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. Love the way the current owners Mary & Mark honor the previous owner Ms. Gene with the restaurant and... More

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... More

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... 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!
