NORTH POLE - The first hotel in North Pole is coming to this Alaska town.
Developers say the Hotel North Pole will open this spring but will enjoy its grand opening in the summer when the tourism season is in high gear.
It's a 71-room hotel that is being built next to the North Pole Plaza Mall.
It's owned by a group of investors from Gavora Inc.
Matthew Gavora says work on the three-story building is about 80 percent complete.
The hotel will be targeting business travelers, including contract workers and military personnel.
