You will not find better food than what chef Jay prepares at this hotel. Period. We travel alot, including travel to Europe. Chef Jay is fantastic! His menu changes constantly, bringing new food experiences. He prepares his food, then actually comes out to see if you are satisfied with his food quality. And the hotel is top of the line. Extremely helpful and friendly, you cannot say enough great things about them. The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorate; beds are definitely made for sleep....you lay down and fall asleep right away. This is our new number one place in Alaska! We are coming back in April for sure!

Room Tip: Room 233 is great with a view.

Finding a pet-friendly hotel can be difficult, especially if you are looking for a nicer room than usual. We stated in the newer part of the hotel, so we don't know what the historic side is like. All the pet rooms are on the first floor, so not much of a view. However the room was very nice, clean and comfortable with all the usual amenities. We enjoyed the lobby and all the historic photos and decorations throughout. There are also quite a few mounted Alaskan animals to view in the lobby, kind of like a mini natural history museum. It was nice to just wander around and look at everything.
The staff and Mary, one of the owners, were very friendly and made us feel welcome. We did not eat at the restaurant, but we will try it out the next time we are in Seward. This trip was just a spur-of-the-moment idea to get away from home for a couple of days, and it turned out very nicely.

Room Tip: Be aware that the hotel has historic rooms that are very old and newer rooms that are more modern. Y...

We went to Seward to go dogsledding with the Seavey team during the Iditarod weekend. The hotel is a pretty decent size and the rooms were nice and clean. The lobby is full of taxidermy animals and other clutter but it's all very clean and well maintained. We had dinner in the restaurant inside the hotel and it was made to order. The chef was new (his name was Jay) and he came to our table and asked us what we liked and then told us what he had in stock and made our dishes. Lamb, salad, scallops, halibut and pasta with bolognese. Food was delicious!

Stayed here with a friend on a road trip through the Kenai peninsula. We stayed in the old part of the hotel, where the walls were paper thin, the phone was from 1982 and we could hear our neighbor snoring all night. For $99 it was the cheapest in the town, but I wouldn't recommend for anyone who plans on trying to get a good nights rest. Nice, helpful staff gets an A for effort.

I'm not going to beat around the bush, this place is a little eccentric, but overall we really enjoyed our stay here.

Pros: Very comfortable bed, large rooms, huge bathrooms, microwave, coffee maker, interesting and eclectic lobby.
Cons: The decor of the rooms is a bit dated and old school with fake flowers, lots of rococo looking pillows, we had breakfast at the restaurant one morning and would not do that again

We were pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Seward. The rooms are large, clean and nicely decorated. The hotel is filled with lots of historical information and decorated to the gills making for a warm festive environment. The staff in the hotel lounge/restaurant were very attentive and the breakfast was delicious. The winter rates are great for the service.
