STEVENSON, WA—Skamania Lodge by Destination Hotels & Resorts added two members to its sales team: Jenna Braden as national sales manager and Luke Andersen as sales manager.
Joining Skamania Lodge after sales tenures at a number of U.S. properties, Braden is charged with creating custom sales campaigns that broaden the lodge’s client base and raise awareness for the property, particularly in the Seattle market.
Andersen’s focus is on building sales for weddings, executive meetings and special events, adding to his previous experience managing the property’s front office.
Ken Daugherty, general manager of Skamania Lodge, stated, “Their understanding and passion for the Pacific Northwest and this industry will help propel our resort to even greater heights.”
Braden and Andersen’s primary goal is to create productive off-site meetings and special events.
Skamania Lodge is an all-season, 175-acre mountain resort and conference center. The property is home to 45 recreational options, including Waterleaf Spa, with an indoor swimming pool, hot tubs and a fitness center; an 18-hole championship golf course; and the Cascade Dining Room and River Rock restaurants. The Cascadian-style lodge is situated in a Pacific Northwest playground with hiking, biking and Sternwheeler river cruises in the summer; skiing and snowshoeing in the winter; and golfing, fishing and whitewater rafting year-round.
Destination Hotels & Resorts is a hospitality management company with a portfolio of more than 40 independent luxury and upscale hotels and resorts across North America.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
