The warm, comfortable and inviting BSNC-owned Aurora Inn & Suites hotel in Nome announces the recent completion of a transformative renovation, in time for the reopening of the Alaska summer tourism season. The fully modernized hotel now offers its guests a fresh experience in a contemporary timeless palette of soft creams, earth tones and pewters. The design harmonizes modern design with influences drawn from the stunning scenery, nature and environment of Northwest Alaska.
In an effort to better serve its guests, each guestroom and common area of the hotel was fully upgraded and beautified. Modern and crisp, guest suites feature beautiful photography of the region by BSNC shareholders and descendants. An additional handicap-accessible room and two more premium rooms with private balconies are now offered. For guest satisfaction, the hotel offers a one-of-a-kind coffee shop, Bering Tea & Coffee, and onsite vehicle rentals of late-model trucks, SUV’s and vans. The renovation was completed by Boretide Construction.
Hotel Property Manager and BSNC shareholder Myrtle Fagerstrom oversaw the renovation. Fagerstrom was born and raised in Golovin and has lived in Nome since 1993. Her parents are the late Floyd and Alice Fagerstrom. She is married to BSNC shareholder James T. Sherman and together they have nine children and more than a handful of grandchildren.
The iconic Nome hotel has provided the best hospitality for residents and visitors from nearby villages and across the world. The hotel will fully reopen in June of 2021 with some COVID-19 restrictions in place. Starting June 1, tourists entering Alaska will be able to receive a vaccine shot at one of the state’s major airports. The vaccine will be available outside the security area at four airports: Juneau, Fairbanks, Ketchikan and Anchorage.
