Seward is a must-stop for any Alaska traveler who wants to explore Resurrection Bay or Kenai Fjords National Park: this waterfront hotel offers a perfectly-located launching pad for the area, with the bonus of gorgeous views.
Views for Everyone
Indeed, the Harbor 360 Hotel has a pretty literal name: Located on Seward’s waterfront, this 94 room hotel offers stunning 360-degree views: You’ll see the Seward Small Boat Harbor and Resurrection Bay if you book a Harborside room, or the Kenai Mountains if you book a Mountainside room.
Steps Away from the Big Activities
The year-round hotel also puts you in the heart of the action of Seward: You're within walking distance to the town’s best restaurants, shops, and the Alaska Railroad Depot. Plus, you have easy access to the banner activities in this waterfront town: You can check in at the hotel itself for Major Marine Tours glacier and wildlife cruises, and walk to the starting point of several local companies’ kayaking trips, fishing charters, and hiking tours into Resurrection Bay or Kenai Fjords National Park. (A nice bonus: staying here gets you special discounts on a lot of those tours and other local activities.)
All the Necessities—like Wifi and a Pool
During your downtime, the Harbor 360 Hotel makes for a comfortable place to both unwind and recharge: rooms come with either two queen beds or one king bed, and include free Wi-Fi, cable TV, coffee maker, and mini-fridge (all rooms are non-smoking).
Come morning, the hotel offers a free continental breakfast, and boasts of having Seward’s only hotel pool (plus a hot tub). And while you have free, high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, you can also use a computer in the Business Center. In lieu of Googling for local information, however, you can also just ask the friendly staff, who are always quick to provide recommendations for nearby restaurants and activities, and to help make sure your needs are met during your Seward stay.
