Kellie Adams and Monica Weagel
NewcrestImage is one step closer to opening the dual-branded AC Hotels by Marriott® and Residence Inn this October with the appointments of Kellie Adams as General Manager and Monica Weagel as Director of Sales. The dual-branded tower will revitalize the 21-story Mercantile Commerce Building which has remained vacant for over 25 years.
Ms. Adams, with over 20 years of hospitality experience, was most recently General Manager at the Homewood Suites Dallas Downtown and has been recognized with numerous industry awards for outstanding performance in operations, sales, and customer service. With more than 12 years of experience in the hospitality industry including her most recent position as Director of Sales at the Hilton Garden Inn in Frisco, Ms. Weagel brings an impressive network of relationships and practices.
“Ms. Adams and Ms. Weagel have exemplified exceptional qualities that complement and enhance the brands’ philosophies. We are excited to debut and celebrate the completed hotels in the coming month,” explains Mital Patel, President of NewcrestImage Management.
The dual-branded hotel will be opening at 1712 Commerce Street in downtown Dallas in autumn 2017. AC Hotels, founded by renowned hotelier Antonio Catalan (‘AC’) in Spain, celebrates the beauty of classic modern design with a European soul and Spanish roots. Residence Inn is a welcoming name for today’s ambitious extended-stay traveler with a desire for both work and play.
