To add to some of the previously given advice:

If you have alternative-specific variables, you should probably look at the "mlogit" package. If not, then I would personally prefer the multinom() function in "nnet" because it provides a few more extractor functions and is described in the MASS book by Venables & Ripley.

In addition to that, there are more packages for different flavors of multinomial models, including the multinom family in the "VGAM" package, among others...
