Cape Fox Lodge

Ketchikan, Alaska
1989

This 55,000 square foot, 72 guest room hotel sits on top of Cape Fox Hill overlooking downtown Ketchikan. The project includes a main lodge and three guest room buildings, each connected to the main lodge with unconditioned, covered walkways. A cable car connects the hotel with the city of Ketchikan lying below the site. The hotel was designed as a “wilderness lodge” to meet new visitors’ expectations of the “Alaskan experience.”

The 4-story main lodge is a wooden building with exposed heavy timber, wood detailing, wood trim, wooden furnishings and wood carvings by native Tlinget.  The lodge includes a restaurant, lounge, banquet rooms, gift shop, administrative offices and 36 guest rooms. The three 3-story guest room buildings provide an additional 36 rooms.
