We are excited to announce the opening of our new hotel in Seward: the Gateway Hotel. This three story hotel will open June 8th and will operate seasonally through September 27th. The Gateway Hotel features 74 modern guest rooms, free breakfast, and is the ideal basecamp for visitors looking to explore Kenai Fjords National Park. As a locally-owned and operated company, we are pleased to add the Gateway Hotel to our family of Seward cruise and hotel options, which includes Major Marine Tours and Harbor 360 Hotel.


Surrounded by steep mountain walls and glacier-carved fjords, Kenai Fjords National Park is home to abundant wildlife and towering tidewater glaciers. This incredible park is at your fingertips at the Gateway Hotel, which is within close walking distance of the newly-remodeled Kenai Fjords National Park Visitor Center and Major Marine Tours cruises into the park. For your convenience, our friendly customer service agents can add Major Marine Tours glacier and wildlife cruises to your Gateway Hotel reservation. The beauty of Kenai Fjords National Park is featured at the Gateway Hotel through artwork and photography on display throughout the hotel.


The Gateway Hotel is conveniently located within close walking distance of the Seward Small Boat Harbor and a variety of restaurants and shops. Downtown Seward and the Alaska SeaLife Center are located less than a mile away. Daily shuttle service will transport guests to and from the Major Marine Tours check-in offices, the Alaska Railroad Depot, and the cruise ship terminal.


Soak up the panoramic mountain views from the outdoor deck. Scan for fish from the elevated viewing platform over the nearby salmon stream. Stroll along the Seward Waterfront Walking Path for stunning views of Resurrection Bay and the Kenai Mountains, keeping an eye out for sea otters, harbor seals, bald eagles, Steller sea lions, and even whales.
