• New Autograph Collection Hotel in Fort Collins Appoints General Manager

    POSTED October 23, 2017

Located in the center of old town, The Elizabeth will welcome Scott Sloan as general manager when it opens this fall. Sloan will oversee the new Autograph Collection hotel, developed by McWHINNEY, a Colorado-based national real estate development company, and Sage Hospitality, a national developer and the hotel’s operator.

Sloan is a 28-year veteran of the hospitality industry, 12 of that being with Sage Hospitality. In that time, he has built an outstanding reputation at each of the hotels under his management by driving revenue and exceeding customer service and guest satisfaction levels. Sloan was most recently the general manager at The Curtis Hotel, a DoubleTree by Hilton, and managed a team of eight executives and more than 200 employees. Sloan attended Texas A&M University and began his career in hospitality in College Station, Texas. It was here he discovered his passion for hospitality and quickly climbed the ranks, managing his first hotel, the Marriott Ogden in Ogden, Utah in 2008.
“I am pleased to be the general manager of The Elizabeth Hotel, which will bring a true upscale hospitality experience to the city of Fort Collins,” said Sloan. “We look forward to working closely with the community to showcase our one-of-a-kind offering to all of our guests – locals and travelers alike.”
The Elizabeth will be part of firehouse Alley, the mixed-use development area of Old Town Fort Collins. The highly-anticipated hotel will feature a modern design with a focus on community, music, expert design and service. The 3,500 sq. ft. of meeting space, including an outdoor terrace with views of Walnut Street, are perfect for any event. The hotel will feature local artists work and will celebrate the authenticity and adventurous spirit of Fort Collins. Blending elegance and design elements will give Fort Collins a destination that is truly unique.

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.

Smith started on the ground floor as an Operations Manager at a destination company called Meeting and Incentive Management in Las Vegas, NV. She worked her way through many stages of the industry.
