New Barrow hotel to open April 22
Barrow is about to have a new hotel.
A subsidiary of the Arctic Slope Regional Corp. says the 70-room Top of the World Hotel will open April 22 in Barrow.
The new facility replaces a hotel which suffered smoke damage when the adjacent restaurant, Pepe's North of the Border, burned down last Labor Day weekend.
Officials say the old hotel will not reopen.
The new hotel is located next to the post office. Rooms will have Wi-Fi and cable. It also will have three conference rooms and a fitness area.
