Seward Hotels & Lodges
Trying to pick the right Seward lodging for you?
Hotels & Cabin Rentals. If you want to stay in town where fine dining, colorful boats bobbing in the water, and all the fun of the harbor are just out your front door, you have several options. The Harbor 360 Hotel is conveniently located in the small boat harbor where all the glacier cruises and fishing charters depart from. And, their sister property, the Seward Gateway Hotel, is just a six-minute walk from the Harbor. Also located in the heart of town is the Seward Adventure Lodge, a modern hotel with six light-filled bedrooms. Each room has a queen-size bed, Wi-Fi, kitchenette, microwave, refrigerator, and coffee bar.
Both the Hotel Seward and Hotel Edgewater are situated in Downtown Seward, just a few minutes walk from the waterfront trail and the SeaLife Center.
For a bit of solitude try the Abode Well Cabins, tucked amidst four acres of trees or Salted Roots Cabins, set in the forest on Resurrection Bay.
Wilderness Lodges. If you really want to get away from it all, try a remote wilderness lodge accessible only by boat. All of these properties offer plenty of activities such as beach combing, kayaking, and whale watching. At the Orca Island Cabins you will stay in spacious, bright yurts, each with their own private decks and access to sea kayaks to explore secluded Humpy Cove. Or, opt for the Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge, located in the heart of Kenai Fjords National Park. Here you will find 16 guest cabins, spectacular views, and plenty of activities. Or, for an option that's a bit more rustic, check into a yurt in Shearwater Cove. It's a kayaker's paradise, and you have unlimited access to the kayaks during your stay.
