Carol Fraser, director of sales and marketing for Aspen Hotels, was the featured speaker at the packed Chamber luncheon at the Westmark Sitka.
Fraser spent some of her time at the podium talking about plans for Aspen's four-story, 71-room hotel now under construction at Oja Way and Lake Street, but she saved time at the end to talk about the industry in Alaska. Aspen Suites Hotel Sitka is scheduled to open this summer. Before the state's current budget crisis, the Alaska Travel Industry Association received $16 million from the state, which was matched with an additional $2 million from the private tourism sector. The ATIA budget shrank to $1.5 million this year, making it one of the smallest state tourism budgets in the United States. Carol Fraser (Sentinel Photo) Carol Fraser (Sentinel Photo) "Everybody's budget in the 48 states is bigger than ours now," Fraser said. The state has closed its marketing offices abroad and canceled publication of the glossy vacation planner, hindering ATIA's ability to market Alaska - a difficult task in the first place, Fraser said. "Alaska is huge and difficult to book," she said. A TID would allow the industry to collect a fee on itself - through a .5 or 1 percent hotel bed tax, for example - that would go toward marketing, similar to the plan used by the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, Fraser said. "We want to do something," she said. She has seen similar steps taken by 11 other states. Industry representatives met with state House finance committee members about this, and it was well received, Fraser said. "If it passes (through the Legislature) we can form a TID," she said. Fees would be collected starting in 2018 or 2019. Fraser said the industry contributes about $4.1 billion to the economy and provides 47,000 jobs, which makes it the second largest private sector employer. There is as yet no dedicated parking, or a dedicated loading area for guests, but Fraser said she's working on the issue with the city. There is no on-site parking requirement for businesses in Sitka's Central Business District zone, but Fraser noted that many visitors come to Sitka without cars. She said it took three years to find a site in Sitka for the 44,000-square- foot building, which will have a small meeting room, exercise facilities and a business center. She said the company plans to add 14 to 16 employees to the Sitka economy, and are "loyal to Alaskans" and hire as many Alaskans as possible. She said many Sitka contractors were hired to build the hotel, including those working on excavation, concrete, insulation and the sprinkler system. Fraser has lived in Alaska since 1983, and got involved in building hotels in 1998, working with the future founder of the Aspen Hotels chain, George Swift.
