Marcus Hotels & Resorts, a division of The Marcus Corporation, has promoted an experienced hotelier to the influential post of senior vice president of operations.

The corporate executive team at Marcus Hotels & Resorts has been bolstered by the addition of Steve Hilton to its ranks.

Proven success

In his new position as senior vice president of operations at Marcus Hotels & Resorts, Hilton will direct and oversee the operations of all properties within the group’s portfolio, from the introduction of new systems to talent development. He comes to the role fresh from serving as managing director of the company’s Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District hotel.

“We are excited to welcome Steve to our corporate executive team,” said Michael Evans, president of Marcus Hotels & Resorts. “With over 30 years of hospitality management experience, Steve’s career accomplishments speak to his focus, dedication and integrity.

“Thanks to his leadership, Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District continues to lead the market in almost every metric. His commitment to excellence will continue to be a tremendous asset as Marcus Hotels & Resorts elevates its reputation for quality service across all of our properties.”

Future growth

Hilton first joined the company in 2016 as general manager for Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District, prior to its opening. The property was named Hotel of the Year by Marriott International in 2019, and he was promoted to managing director of the hotel in 2020.

Before making the switch to Marcus Hotels & Resorts, Hilton garnered experience as general manager for several other hotels across the US. He holds an associate degree in hotel management from Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Hilton said: “I am honoured to work alongside such a talented team and continue my career at a highly reputable hotel management company. I’m looking forward to contributing to Marcus Hotels & Resorts’ growth and success as it continues to deliver extraordinary experiences to all who visit our properties.”
