- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage hotel that's known as a center of criminal activity is closing. The Anchorage Daily News says the Inlet Inn will shut down by Jan. 31. Real estate developer Mark Pfeffer, one of the property owners, says the building probably will be demolished. Hotel operator Boo Lee could not immediately be reached for comment. Pfeffer says Lee was the former owner of the hotel, sold it to Augustine Energy Center LLC and leased it back from the new owners. The Daily News reported last summer that police had been visiting the establishment once a day on average for assaults, drugs and stealing, among other problems. Pferrer says the owners tried to work with the hotel, then decided it wasn't worth it and decided to terminate the lease.
