Downtown Denver’s Kimpton Hotel Monaco has appointed two new members to their team: Victoria Noe as director of catering and Brittany Gripp as group sales manager. Noe and Gripp have years of experience in management from local Denver properties.

Noe comes to her latest position following her position as senior event manager for Epicurean Catering at Sports Authority Meal. In her role, she will be responsible for planning more than 275 meetings annually that have anywhere from 250 to 2,500 guests. She has previously served as catering sales manager at two properties in Colorado. She is a certified wedding planner and earned a bachelor’s degree in hospitality management from Colorado State University.

“It is with much excitement that we bring Victoria into the position of Director of Catering of Kimpton Hotel Monaco Denver,” says Matt Snyder, general manager, Panzano. “Victoria’s knowledge of the event and catering industry and experience in customer service will greatly benefit clients as they plan their meetings and events at our hotel.”

Gripp joins the team after holding the same position at The Driskill Hotel. She will be responsible for forging relationships with CVB sales managers and developing lucrative sales stratefies.

“We are thrilled to welcome Brittany to the Hotel Monaco team as Group Sales Manager,” says Sandy Burkett, general manager, Kimpton Hotel Monaco Denver. “We are confident that Brittany will leverage our position in key markets to increase group sales while maintaining current customer satisfaction.”

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
