CORALVILLE, IA—The Coralville Marriott Hotel & Conference Center has hired Bryan Stolz as its new general manager.
"Bryan's experience with resort, suburban, downtown city and conference center properties will be beneficial in making the Coralville Marriott Hotel & Conference Center a standout among Iowa City hotels and will put it a step above other hotels in Coralville and hotels near Iowa River Landing," stated Jim Connelly, SVP of operations and owner services.
Bryan began his career in 1994 after graduating from the University of Florida. Beginning as a shift leader at the Marco Island Marriott Resort & Golf Club, he worked his way through the ranks of restaurant management and housekeeping followed by a move to the Washington, D.C., area. While there, Bryan worked at the Greenbelt Marriott, Fairview Park Marriott, Washington Marriott at Metro Center and most recently as the director of hotel operations at the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles.
In his last three executive positions, Bryan succeeded in leading his teams to drive guest satisfaction and improve profitability and associate satisfaction. At the Westfields Marriott, he raised guest satisfaction surveys to 87.3% and was part of a team that accomplished a No. 1 ranking in the eastern region for two quarters.
