Bob Megazzini has been promoted to serve as Area General Manager for the JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek and the Courtyard by Marriott Denver Downtown hotels. With more than 30 years of experience, Megazzini held multiple leadership positions with Marriott International.

Megazzini graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Hotel, Restaurant and Travel Administration. He also has earned numerous industry accolades, including the Sage Hospitality’s Leader of the Year, the JW Marriott Eagle Leadership Award, and the Marriott Business Council Leadership Award.

Believing in strong community involvement, Megazzini has served as a board member on the Marriott Business Council, Junior Achievement of Greater Cleveland and the Children’s Miracle Network Advisory Council.

“Bob is a tenured Sage leader who has a proven track record that aligns with the company’s core values of performance excellence and community partnerships,” said Sage Hospitality President and CEO Walter Isenberg. “He will be a great addition to the booming Cherry Creek hotel scene and the broader Denver community.”

The JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek features 196 guest rooms and suites with modern décor and a beautiful 4-piece marble bathroom. In addition, there is 8,500 square feet of meeting space, the Antoine du Chez, Cherry Creek Spa, fitness center, and Second Home Kitchen + Bar. Outdoor, there is the Fireside, a 2,400-square foot outdoor event space that offers two walls of glass retractable doors that leads to an enchanting patio with fire pits.

Last year, the Courtyard by Marriott Denver Downtown completed a multi-million-dollar renovation with updates to the lobby, 3,200 square feet of meeting space, flexible venues, a business center, valet parking, and a 24 hour fitness center. Guests can also dine at the Rialto Café or grab a quick snack and coffee at Starbucks.

Viceroy Snowmass recently hired Danielle McNair as director of business development for their sales professional team.

“Being the director is actually very similar to my previous sales leader role because much of what I do still relates to hotel sales,” said McNair.

As the lead member of the sales team, McNair is responsible for generating new business leads and revenue streams in the association, corporate meetings and incentives sectors.
