Kinzie Hotel, in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, hired Maurese Nelson as the new director of sales and marketing.
"I was attracted to Kinzie Hotel because it's an independent and I can instill my own selling style here," says Nelson. “The owner, Portfolio Hotels & Resorts, is investing in the right type of talent. I'm confident I can get people to buy into this product because I truly believe it's second to none. We offer a personal touch that separates us from competitors."
