role in continually developing the hotel's ties to the community and elevating its profile in the industry.
As general manager, she also will oversee all operations of the 248-room property and lead a team of dedicated hospitality professionals.
"I am fortunate to have a career where I am equally as passionate about my work as I am the place I live," said Fraser
"Promoting Alaska to travelers and providing an exceptional place to stay is what continues to excite me after 20 years in the tourism industry.
The Millennium Alaskan Hotel Anchorage is one of the most iconic hotels in our city, providing a true experience of Alaska.
Our visitors love watching the float planes land on Lake Spenard as much as discovering our gallery of sepia photographs of early Alaskans."
