VANCOUVER—Suzanne Allemeier, general manager of Residence Inn by Marriott Vancouver Downtown, was awarded the 2013 Opening General Manager of the Year Award by Residence Inn Marriott last month. 

The Opening General Manager of the Year Award recognizes a general manager who demonstrates outstanding leadership and management skills to help the hotel achieve exceptional financial results and high guest satisfaction during the hotel’s opening year. This year’s award was open to general managers of hotels that opened between August 2011 and August 2012.

“Well, as you know…. great things happen in 3’s,” Allemeier told CLN.  This award is the result of the confluence of SilverBirch, Marriott and an incredible team at the hotel!”

Allemeier assumed the GM position with Residence Inn by Marriott Vancouver Downtown in December 2011 and played a vital role in integrating the hotel team leading up to the grand opening in July 2012. Prior to this, she was the GM of the Holiday Inn & Suites Vancouver Downtown and guest services manager at Crowne Plaza Hotel Georgia. She is also the Past-Chair of the Hotel Association of Vancouver.
