Marie Cornell has been with the Lotus Hotels and Investments family since 2008 after moving from Manila, Philippines.
She started her career in the hospitality industry 20 years ago at the historic Manila Hotel in the Philippines. Her keen interest in special events such as Weddings, Birthday’s and Conferences led her to assume the role of a Banquet Sales Coordinator in the early stages of her career.
She moved to the Pearl Manila Hotel to assume the role of Sales Manager for Travel and Tours, where she spent 4 years before moving to the US.
She has served several functions within the industry, which honed her skills and knowledge in providing excellent customer service. For Marie, consistency in providing superior customer service and a genuine passion for excellence in her craft has propelled her to achieve her goals in the hotel and hospitality industry, where she now manages an IHG brand hotel, Holiday Inn Express in Union City.
On her spare time, she loves to spend time with her family, read books and travel around the US and overseas to be able to immerse herself in different cultures and new trends in the hospitality business.
