The Hotel Seward is a beautiful and charming little place; in many ways, it improves on the generally more honky-tonk character of the town it's in. First of all, the staff went out of their way to be helpful to us, setting up several reservations in the area, and offering good advice on local attractions. I'd have given the hotel 5 stars on service, except that one staffer seemed to be slacking, and forgot to arrange to have our bags returned to the train. One of the owners drove them to us, apologizing greatly for what was only a minor inconvenience. The rooms are comfortable, the beds were rather nice, and the restaurant, though small, was stylish and provided very good food (except that the salmon was WAY oversalted). The lobby and hallways are fun, with all sorts of stuffed animals on the walls, plus dozens and dozens of historical pictures and maps, particularly with info on the devastating 1964 quake. The location is ideal, just a short walk to the Sealife Center, and only a block to all sorts of local eateries (almost none of which compare to the hotel's own restaurant). The last morning we were there, we wound up eating breakfast in one of the little themed rooms down the hall -- kind of a Victorian room -- which was a sweet way to enjoy a turkey-sausage and vegetable omelette for me, and for my wife and daughter to savor the place's homemade oatmeal, with blueberries and honey.
