Anchorage hotel destroyed by fire, completed

Posted: Tuesday, January 21, 2003

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Less than a year after a devastating fire, Aspen Hotels is opening a new hotel Wednesday in downtown Anchorage.

It was April 9 that a fire destroyed the hotel, which was under construction and just three months from opening. Damage was estimated at more than $5 million. No one was injured in the blaze.

The new 90-room hotel was built on the same downtown property.

Aspen Hotels of Alaska has four other hotels, one each in Fairbanks, Juneau, Soldotna and Valdez.
