Holland America Line was presented with an Alyeska Award by the Alaska Tourism Industry Association for the cruise line’s new Denali Square complex in the heart of McKinley Chalet Resort.

Bill Fletcher, Holland America Line’s director of Alaska sales, marketing and planning, accepted the award at ATIA’s annual banquet in Anchorage, Alaska.

The Alyeska Award is presented to a business or organization for its outstanding leadership, professional excellence and group contribution to the Alaska travel industry.

“We are honored to be recognized by the Alaska Tourism Industry Association for our contribution to Alaska’s tourism, and I congratulate our entire team for bringing Denali Square to life this summer,” said Orlando Ashford, Holland America Line’s president. “Holland America Line is celebrating 70 years of Alaska exploration in 2017, and Denali National Park is at the core of our Alaska Land+Sea Journeys. Denali Square allows us to showcase Alaskan culture on many levels and greatly enhances the Denali experience for our guests.”

Over the past three years Holland America Line has been refining the guest experience at the 60-acre McKinley Chalet Resort, and last year an enhanced property layout and freshly remodeled guest rooms were unveiled.

Alaska-based companies heading up the McKinley Chalet Resort’s enhancement project included general contractor Dawson Construction and Stantec, which provided engineering services. Additional firms involved are lead and landscape architect The Portico Group, restaurant architect Heliotrope Architects, structural engineering company Michael Leonard Associates and project manager Costigan Integrated, all of Seattle, Washington.
