We selected the Hotel Halsingland through Tripadvisor and were not disappointed! As part of the historic Fort Seward complex in Haines, this hotel, over 100 years old, is understandably old-fashioned. We enjoyed the opportunity to stay in a national historic landmark while exploring the old fort's grounds and the area surrounding Haines. Jeff Butcher, the owner of the hotel, was a gracious and helpful host; his wife is the chef and we had the most outstanding dinner in the hotel restaurant! It would be worth another visit just to repeat the dining experience!
The Hotel Halsingland is not fancy. It is an old building and retains much of the charm of years past. Don't expect a 5-star experience. You will have to climb stairs, use a real key to enter your room, and experience a genuine claw-foot tub in the bathroom! Furnishings are modest but clean.
If you are planning to visit Haines, we would certainly recommend the Hotel Halsingland as your destination of choice! The friendly atmosphere of the hotel makes you feel at home, Jeff was helpful and informative (he even offered to keep our purchased halibut and scallops in his freezer while we were visiting!), and the food and service in the hotel restaurant was second to none.
