By writing this review, I know that I'll never be able to stay there again because it will be too popular. But they deserve the excellent review that I am about to give. I had wanted to stay at a different hotel. It was on the water. But, even though I was booking well in advance of the trip, just about everything had already been taken. Truthfully, I made a reservation at Murphy's Alaskan Inn as a last resort. I had no idea that I was getting a premier choice. The room was excellent, close to the 'real' downtown Seward (easy walking distance), across the street from the waterfront park, advice given for excellent restaurants, and hotel service beyond belief. Not like the usual hotel. Personal service like you wouldn't believe. Met the owner, what a great guy. Front desk service was outstanding.
Really liked this place and would go back in a heartbeat, preferentially - as a first choice. Ah well, the secret is out. I'd been on my anniversary vacation and this was definitely one of the highlights. They certainly deserve this review. I just hope that I can still get a reservation for my next anniversary. Like the song - Nobody Does It Better!
