Overall, the underlying design concept in the Hotel revolves around integrating Native elements and themes unique to Alaska. The results highlight warm, organic elements to the hotel interiors bringing the natural beauty of the great outdoors inside.
Our guest rooms feature Alaska Native artwork from respected turn-of-the century photographer and artist Edward Curtis.

Ahvakana is most famous for his Inuit or Inupiaq figures and animals sculptured from wood, alabaster, marble, glass, ivory and cast in bronze or other metals. Avugiak’s work reflects his village life and experiences throughout parts of Alaska.
Many of the art pieces are available for purchase. Please inquire at the Hotel Front Desk.
