McKibbon Hospitality Appoints Two Executives to Aloft Tallahassee Downtown Management Team

USA, Tallahassee, Florida. July 09, 2019

Aloft Tallahassee Downtown, located in the heart of the state's capital, recently appointed a new general manager and operations manager.

Brandon Miller, Aloft Tallahassee Downtown's new general manager, was promoted from his position as assistant general manager, a post he took over in May 2017 after arriving from the Nashville Airport Marriott. During his 11-year tenure there, Brandon rose through the ranks, holding such posts as restaurant supervisor, front office manager, and senior room operations manager.

He played a key role in the Nashville Airport Marriott's burgeoning success — it ranked first out of 336 hotels in check-in experience two years in a row when he was front office manager. Aloft Tallahassee Downtown felt Brandon's impact immediately, lifting the hotel to No. 2 in brand in 2018 and generating an impressive 10% year-over-year rise in Intent to Recommend.

Brandon holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality Management from Western Kentucky University.

Jennifer Johnson is Aloft Tallahassee Downtown's new operations manager. She had to travel all of two blocks for her new position, having previously served as the front office manager for the Hotel Duval, Autograph Collection. Jennifer started as a guest service representative there in September 2014 and in less than a year-and-half was appointed front desk manager.

Prior to starting her hospitality career, Jennifer put her people skills to the test as the assistant director of Imagination Day School in Tallahassee, which cared for and educated 125 children ranging from 3 months to 5 years old. She created a coaching and mentoring program to help improve the school's performance, leading to 100 percent occupancy.

Jennifer holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida.

A 9-minute walk from the Florida State Capitol, Aloft Tallahassee Downtown is a contemporary hotel featuring 162 rooms, three meeting spaces, an outdoor pool and 24-hour fitness center. In addition to a pet-friendly policy, the hotel offers guests inventive cocktails, craft beers and enticing pub food at the hotel's w xyz bar, and space to relax and unwind at the re:mix lounge.

Aloft Tallahassee Downtown and Tampa-based McKibbon Hospitality, which owns and manages the hotel, welcome the vital new additions to the management team.

Hotel Spa: Immense Transformation

There is no doubt that the Hotel Spa industry is undergoing an immense transformation as a result of the pandemic. New cleanliness standards for facilities, new safety standards for employees, and new ways of interacting with guests are now the New Normal, and will be for the foreseeable future. Given that some former patrons might be reluctant to return due to safety concerns, some spas are offering contactless experiences that utilize high-tech technologies to address wellness concerns like sleep, stress, pain, and immunity. Other spas are expanding their services to include life coaches, osteopaths, psychologists, and nutrition counselors in an effort to help their guests achieve a balanced lifestyle. Some spas are tapping into traditional Asian rituals to create programs such as sound healing, chakra balancing, and intuitive energy reading. Other programs emphasize re-connecting with Nature and have developed outdoor treatments such as Star Bathing, Feet in the Creek, and Treehouse meditations. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotel spas are doing to promote and manage their operations so guests can safely return for their health, wellness and beauty treatments.
