Check in was quick. Location was perfect and walkable to restaurants, gift shops, and other attractions. Good coordination with transportation services to train, cruise port and shore excursions. Hotel was clean, spacious and well maintained. Rooms were also spacious and beds were comfortable. Self serve breakfast had a good variety daily served on real plates with real silverware. A good value for the price .Will definitely be staying there again.

I went to a wedding here and it was the best experience I’ve ever had at a hotel. It’s beautiful, the people are awesome and I overall had a great time. Seward in itself is beautiful, the location is right in the heart of this little town and you can walk anywhere from here. Out of all the hotels I would recommend this one (Gateway) and also I spent the night at hotel 360 and saw the fireworks from the top floor it was great! 5 out of 5, I would always recommend.

This hotel was wonderful! The staff was so nice and helped us with all of our needs! They really go above and beyond for their guests! The hotel was also one of the cleanest hotels I have ever been in! You can tell they work hard to keep this place looking brand new! We loved our stay and will be back!

My husband and I came to town on a whim and were luckily enough to get a room. The manager, Lyrissa, was amazing and so helpful! Breakfast had a great selection and the dining area was so clean and welcoming. We will definitely be back!

What a nice lodging! Comfortable, immaculately clean, friendly, accessible, new, modern, with a wonderful breakfast and large window seating! Everything was perfect and it had been a long time since I'd been in Seward. So thank you for that!

We recently hosted an event at the beautiful Seward Gateway Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our experience! We could not have asked for a better venue. Event planning can be stressful, but our experience at SGH was hands down the easiest venue we've worked with. The staff was competent and attentive. The general manager was accommodating with and eager to meet our needs. Beautiful location! Excellent service! Friendly staff!

This hotel has an exceptional complimentary breakfast. This is the newest hotel in Seward and has extremley clean and modern rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. By staying here you can also take advantage of discounts on Major Marine Cruises tours as the two businesses have the same owner. The property is in a great location, across the street from the small boat harbor and a short walk from the railroad depot.
