We stays at the Seward Windsong Lodge as part of our Holland America Alaska Cruise Tour. Since we were not in charge of hotels (we are generally independent travelers), we were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. We need a ADA accessible room with a roll in shower and our room was among the best we have had in this category. Hotel is made up of a number of buildings spread out on the property. Ours was very close to the main lobby and all are within walking distance of the restaurant.
The staff was exceptionally helpful and the shuttle service was great. We had a need to see a physician (actually a P.A.) in town and the shuttle driver took us to the office, picked us up after our appt., took us to the Safeway to have the prescription filled, waited for us and took us back to the hotel.
For the other guests, the shuttle was available for transfer to town. (The hotel is a bit outside of town.).
We thought we would need the shuttle to get to the restaurants in town, but the restaurant on site was great. Much better than expected for such a, relatively, remote location. We ended up eating there twice. The food is very creative and tasty. The wine list was exceptional as was the Alaskan beer selection.
As we were on the the first Cruise Tour of the season, beware that only a few of the staff had local knowledge (most were just up for the season.) However, there was always someone available with local knowledge (like where to find a physician.)
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel and the co-located restaurant (Resurrection).
As the hotel was part of our pre-booked tour, I can't comment on the hotel rates but the Restaurant was reasonable for what we received.
