Yedla Management Company has hired three leadership team members for its four Walt Disney World® Gateway Hotels located at Orlando’s FLAMINGO CROSSINGS® Town Center.
Joseph Clark joins Yedla Management as Director of Food and Beverage for the complex. Beth Lyon joins as Director of Sales, and Kristina Marsal will serve as Sales Manager.
The hotels, developed by Yedla in partnership with Doradus Partners, include four brands—Home2 Suites and Homewood Suites by Hilton® and Residence Inn and Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott. Home2 Suites and Homewood Suites are open. Both Marriott properties will open later this summer. All four hotels are accepting reservations.
“As more and more COVID-19 vaccines are distributed, we are seeing the travel and tourism industry begin to pick up again and more people feeling comfortable traveling again,” said Srinath Yedla, founding principal of Doradus Partners and CEO of Yedla Management Company. “We are confident that the additions to our leadership team will aid in providing a rich experience for our guests.”
As Director of Food and Beverage, Clark will implement creative food and beverage offerings for guests at the restaurants, poolside bars and indoor bars at the four FLAMINGO CROSSINGS® Town Center hotels. Clark has more than 15 years of experience in the food and beverage industry.
With over 15 years of industry experience, Lyon will serve as Director of Sales, overseeing and directing all strategic sales and marketing efforts at Home2 Suites and Homewood Suites by Hilton. Before joining Yedla, Lyon served as a Senior Sales Manager at various full-service hotels across Orlando.
Marsal brings nine years of hospitality sales experience to the Yedla Management team. As Sales Manager, Marsal’s primary role is to manage group sales at Home2 Suites and Homewood Suites by Hilton.
The four properties will have access to a wide range of amenities, including on-site restaurants, lush green landscapes, pool bars, a soccer field, batting cages, a basketball court, pool slide, fire pits, outdoor grills and more. One of the hotels also features a Disney Planning Center desk to assist guests with their scheduling needs.
