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.

Diverse, extensive experience and a passion for both DC and Denver are what Lester Robinson II is bringing to Visit Denver as the new sales director, Washington DC Region. A Michigan native, Robinson has been in the DC area for 10 years and has traveled all over the country for work.
