ACME Hotel Company Appoints Sean Coghlan as General Manager
ACME Hotel Company is thrilled to announce the appointment of Sean Coghlan as the new General Manager for the hip downtown boutique property. Coghlan brings nearly 20 years of hotel management experience to his role.
Coghlan discovered his fervor for the hotel industry when in culinary school at the Cooking Hospitality Institute of Chicago. Following his passion to become immersed in the dynamic world of hotel operations, he took on management and operations director roles at a variety of hotel properties in Chicago and surrounding suburbs including Whitehall Hotel Chicago, Hotel Indigo Chicago (a former Rebel Hospitality property), and Oak Brook Hills Hotel and Resort. Most recently, he was General Manager of the Hilton Garden Inn Hoffman Estates where he oversaw operations of the world class property. He joined ACME Hotel in January 2019.
"When the opportunity to join the team at ACME Hotel presented itself, I was thrilled at the chance to join the Rebel Hospitality team once again and to work for a property that exudes a vibe that is far from cookie cutter," shared Coghlan.
At ACME Hotel, Coghlan oversees the hotel's staff, manages budgets, ensures a memorable guest experience and assists with overall operations for the lifestyle boutique property.
Coghlan's appointment follows an exciting move for former ACME Hotel General Manager Jim Harness, who has transitioned into a newly created role with ACME's parent company Rebel Hospitality. At Rebel, Harness oversees planning and development for future Rebel Hospitality properties across the United States.
"In his extensive tenure, Jim has proven to be an integral member of the Rebel family," said Rebel Hospitality Principal Gene Kornota. "We're thrilled to have him step into this new well-deserved role and can't wait to see his talents shine as he strategizes on our growth in the years ahead."
