US: Endeavor Hospitality Group has announced the appointment of Robert Cole as general manager of the Marriott Courtyard New York Midtown West.

In his new role, Cole will be responsible for day-to-day hotel operations, guest relations and business development for the 399-room, 28-floor property, slated to open in May 2019.

A hotel industry expert and native New Yorker, Cole brings over 15 years of hospitality operations, finance and revenue management knowledge to Endeavor Hospitality Group's first New York City hotel. Prior to joining the Marriott Courtyard New York Midtown West, Cole served as general manager of IHG's Kimpton Goodland Hotel in Santa Barbara, California. His previous experience includes leadership roles at the Kimpton Hotel Palomar in Los Angeles, MGM Grand and Renaissance Hotels in Las Vegas.

Tom Xavier, chief operating officer at Endeavor Hospitality Group, said: "We are fortunate to have Rob join our New York team. I've worked with Rob for many years and not only is he the ideal candidate to launch and manage this property, he is also the perfect fit to help us build the Endeavor Hospitality culture. His broad base of experience, the ease with which he makes guests feel at-home and his commitment to inspiring teams to consistently go above and beyond will undoubtedly help us make our mark in New York City."

The Courtyard New York Midtown West is located in Manhattan's Hudson Yards District. As their portfolio expands, the Hotel will be the first of several properties Endeavor Hospitality Group will open in New York City.

Cole added: "I've enjoyed watching the Courtyard brand evolve over the years and am thrilled to be a part of this new generation of Courtyard Hotels under Endeavor Hospitality Group management. The Hotel's ideal location right across from Hudson Yards, provides business travellers, groups, and leisure guests the opportunity to take advantage of all that Midtown West has to offer. Our meeting room options, business-friendly conveniences, late-night bar and lounge and extras such as bathrobes in each room and "forget-me-not" travel items are examples of value adds guests will enjoy. I look forward to infusing the guest experience with distinct elements of hospitality, while still providing the reliability and comfort expected at a Courtyard."

Cole will be based at the hotel, located at 461 West 34th Street, on the corner at 10th Avenue.
