DENVER—Sage Hospitality has promoted Jan Lucas as regional VP of the select service division. In this role, Lucas will oversee 15-20 hotels nationwide, driving operational excellence while supporting Sage's aggressive growth strategy, which includes its division of select-service hotels.

Other positions with Sage include divisional VP of the premier & lifestyle division and general manager of the Residence Inn Denver City Center and Courtyard Denver Downtown. She also has more than 15 years of experience working directly for Marriott International.
"Jan drives results wherever she goes and we're excited to have her back at the Sage Global Office," stated Robert Butler, SVP, Select Service Division for Sage.

The SpringHill Suites Downtown Oceanside hotel is under construction and will open in February in California.
