Los Angeles-based Factory Place Hospitality Group has hired Bryan Marn and Janalane Southard to oversee restaurant sales and events at its properties in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Marn joins the FPHG team as events director for the group’s Los Angeles restaurants—The Factory Kitchen, Officine BRERA, and sixth+mill pizzeria and bar. Southard joins the team as restaurant sales manager for the newly opened The Factory Kitchen in The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. 

Marn has 20 years of food and beverage experience, mostly in New York and L.A. Southard also joins the Factory Place Hospitality Group with two decades of experience in Las Vegas. 

“It is so exciting to be an integral part of the The Factory Kitchen Las Vegas team from the very beginning! I am passionate about connecting with our guests on a personal level to cultivate long-term relationships and return business,” says Southard.

FPHG’s four celebrated restaurants are the original The Factory Kitchen, Officine BRERA and sixth+mill pizzeria and bar, all in Downtown L.A., and The Factory Kitchen at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip. 

Over a period of 13 years, Colorado Meetings + Events has hosted two “Best of” award celebrations at the Denver Art Museum (DAM). So it was fun to get back to the museum in January 2019 to hear about and see DAM’s $150 revitalization project underway and experience an exhibition that I’ve been hearing so much about.

 

U.S. News & World Report recently released its “Best Hotels” list for 2019 and 22 of BENCHMARK’s hotels and resorts were named to the list.

Highlighted honors includ three silver badge winners that placed in the top 30 percent of all ranked luxury hotels within a destination. They include Villas of Grand Cypress in Orlando, Benchmark’s newest hotel, La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, and Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort in Curacao.

 

Denver-based Stonebridge Companies has acquired the 280-room Embassy Suites by Hilton New Orleans Convention Center hotel. As the property owner and operator, the acquisition marks Stonebridge Companies’ entrance into the New Orleans market.
