Stayed for a weekend trip. Front desk was hospitable, room was well appointed (Alaska Wing), In-house restaurant was convenient. We had no problems during our stay and we would definitely come back. Well kept!

Staff was aloof. We were ready to check out and the clerk was on the phone and never acknowledged us. No complementary breakfast, no ice machine on third floor, lobby is overly decorated. The room was great. Very clean, upgraded, nice furniture.

We stayed for one night and we're extremely pleased with the cleanliness and atmosphere. It has a lovely Victorian theme and plenty of history throughout. The staff was very courteous and helpful and it was convenient to have breakfast at the in house little restaurant named after the previous owner. Excellent food! I highly recommend the "Marks omelette"!!!

I happened upon the Hotel Seward after arriving by bus from Anchorage with no clear plan, and the driver made it clear it was the only place worth staying in town. The building is old but well-kept and very neat. What really made it, though, are the people. I met the owner, Mark, at the bar, and we chatted all...

Thank your visit it was much appreciated. I apologize for the delayed response. Mark left to help his father. I just found that the person that was responsible for overseeing reviews did not pass this on when they left. I will hope this over site does not happen again. We hope to see you again, Mary

Close to the marvelous Alaska sealife Center, this little hotel is very cozy and welcome passengers in December with an unbelievable atmosphere of Santa Claus and animals in the lobby. Room is cozy also, warm and well equipped. Personnel is efficient even if the service is "light". But can we ask much more at this Northen latitude? Wild otters accompanny...

I was in town for two weeks in June 2016, and stayed in two separate rooms. I stayed at Hotel Seward. The hotel has a Victorian feel, but with all the modern amenities needed. I stayed in one of the rooms that have a bathroom. Please check ahead, as they have some rooms that share a bathroom, European style. You...

This old hotel has been nicely refurbished in a sort of Victorian/frontier style and has comfortable rooms with good service. The exception is the restaurant, which is average at best and worse if you expect to get well prepared seafood. Stay here but look elsewhere for meals.

We stayed in this hotel for one night on September 2016, before departing on our cruise. They gave us a room on the first floor all the way in the back - it had a/c - no air circulation, and both windows in the room faced the back alley. It was hard to get any air in the room unless...

I am sincerely sorry your stay was not as you expected. I understand you were in the Historic Wing and our smaller less expensive rooms. I understand the street is close and the windows have screen, but coming from a larger city it may seem a concern. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I will look at a...
