My husband and I are taking a one-way cruise into Seward, renting a car, and flying out of Anchorage 4 days later.
We're thinking of spending one night in Seward (Holiday Inn Express probably), one in Girdwood (Hotel Alyeska maybe), and then last night is up for grabs. We don't fly out on our final day until 8:45 pm, so spending our last night someplace that's an hour or so outside of Anchorage wouldn't be a problem.
I was thinking of the Embassy Suites (love their breakfasts and I see it's #1 on TripAdvisor) but I don't know that we will really love staying in downtown Anchorage. I think a more scenic place on the outskirts might be better, and then we can hang out downtown the day of our flight.
Thoughts on this? Any other recommendations for towns in which we should stay in between Seward and Anchorage?
