WESTMARK HOTELS AND INNS SELLS WESTMARK INN SITKA TO SHEE ATIKA INC.
 ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Dec. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The sale of the 80-room Westmark Inn Sitka by Anchorage-based Westmark Hotels and Inns to Shee Atika Inc. of Sitka was jointly announced today. The price of the sale, which is effective today, was not disclosed.
 Westmark's predecessor, Sheffield Hotels, built the inn in 1978 and it was operated in competition with the Shee Atika lodge until 1987, when both hotels were brought under the Westmark banner. In recent years, Westmark has operated the inn periodically to accommodate conventions.
 "This is a wonderful opportunity to regain ownership of the Herring Rock site that is so culturally and historically significant to our Native people," said Ken Cameron, chairman of Shee Atika Inc.
 "The building will continue to be rented for light commercial uses and for overflow convention traffic until long-term plans for the site have been determined," Cameron said.
 "We're proud that the Natives of Sitka now own the Westmark Inn," said Al Parrish, president, Westmark Hotels and Inns. "Local Native ownership will guarantee sensitivity to the needs of the community."
 The parties also announced that Westmark will continue to operate the 97-room Westmark Shee Atika lodge under an extension of a management agreement with Shee Atika Inc.
 Westmark Hotels and Inns, headquartered in Anchorage, is the largest hotel group in Alaska and Yukon Territory with a total of 18 hotels in 12 communities. They are operated within the Holland America Westours "Tradition of Excellence" in quality, service and traveler comfort.
 Shee Atika Inc., headquartered in Sitka, is the Native corporation formed by the Natives of Sitka.
