The Statler, a historic Dallas hotel, has announced Adrian Nieto will join their team as the director of sales.

Nieto looks forward to being part of the newest chapter of the Statler Hotel’s story.

“There are over 60 years of wonderful stories, and memorabilia in and around the building. The opportunity to be an ambassador of The Statler Dallas, and share this wealth of information, is exciting,” said Nieto.

Nieto has the opportunity to move The Statler, and the hotel industry, forward.

“The ever-changing landscape of travel trends, booking tools, and markets are both intriguing and challenging. I enjoy adapting and approaching our initiatives with new and creative ideas.”

Aimbridge Hospitality, a property and asset consulting service, manages The Statler.

Aimbridge selected Nieto for his 20-year hospitality experience and proven record of sales achievements from past leadership roles.

“I was fortunate to have spent a decade as Director of Sales and Marketing with one of the top performing Hilton Hotels in the Americas – with high expectation of brand standards and service levels,” said Nieto.

Prior to The Hilton, Nieto held positions as Director of Sales and Catering for the Wyndham Dallas/Las Colinas, Senior Sales and Catering Manager and Front Office Director at the Dallas Marriott Las Colinas and Front Office Manager at Renaissance Dallas Hotel.

Nieto’s knowledge with lodging brands and operating procedures will play a key part in his success at The Statler.

Nieto’s duties include planning, directing, and implementing all sales strategies and activities to boost revenue at the hotel.

Additionally, Nieto will be responsible for the booking and management of The Statler’s more than 33,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including entertainment suites, meetings rooms, restaurants, boutique retail, and a 13,154-square-foot Grand Ballroom.

“It’s a privilege to have Adrian join our team at The Statler,” said Evan Danziger, general manager. “Adrian’s thorough knowledge of hotel revenue management strategies and systems, and proven display of sales expertise, will be an undeniable asset to our property.”

As a sales leader, Nieto has the opportunity to help grow and develop a sales team.

“I want to position the team with opportunities to become executive leaders,” said Nieto. “I’m also hoping to expand my knowledge of the Downtown Dallas market and Curio Collection by Hilton.”

The Statler, Curio Collection by Hilton, is located at 1914 Commerce St., Dallas TX 75201. It is a 159-room hotel that can accommodate 219 luxury residences.

Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option.

 

The family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.
