FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
VETERAN TRAVEL AND HOSPITALITY LEADER LEN MARAZZO SELECTED TO LEAD COURTYARD BY MARRIOTT RENO AS GENERAL MANAGER
(RENO, Nev.) — Len Marazzo, a trusted travel and hospitality manager with more than 30 years of experience, has been selected to lead the recently renovated Courtyard by Marriott Reno, Nev., as General Manager.
Marazzo joined the Courtyard hotel in August of 2018 as the Director of Sales. His promotion to the General Manager role comes just as the Courtyard is completing a multi-million dollar transformation that has created Reno’s “newest” Courtyard by Marriott hotel.
“We are extremely excited about the future of the Courtyard with Len at the helm,” said the president & CEO Jim Darter of Sandpiper Hospitality, the company that manages the hotel. “Since joining the Courtyard, Len has proven to be a natural business leader, focused on all the right things – our associates, customers, community and investors.”
Marazzo has been a recognized leader in the hospitality industry in Reno for 30 years, with vast experience and deep relationships throughout the Reno/Sparks/Tahoe region. “He knows how to create meaningful relationships with clients, vendors, marketing partners, staff and colleagues. He has and will continue to build significant long-term partnerships for the Courtyard,” said Darter.
The transformation of the Courtyard will culminate with a much-anticipated invitation-only event on May 22 when the property’s physical renewal will be fully revealed for the first time. During the event, themed as the “Hottest Ticket in Town,” two lucky guests will win a package including transportation to New York City, accommodation at a Courtyard hotel and two tickets to Hamilton.
“It will be our pleasure to offer the very best hospitality experience in Reno for business and leisure travelers alike,” said Marazzo. “Our amazing team, combined with the fresh new design and offerings of the transformation, will allow us to meet our customer’s needs like no other hotel in Reno. That’s my commitment.”
The centrally located Courtyard by Marriott Reno offers 117 rooms with The Bistro, a fitness center, indoor swimming pool and hot tub, and meeting/event space.
