Omni Louisville Hotel Announces Two Leadership Roles
Omni Veterans Assume General Manager and Hotel Manager Roles of the 600-Room Hotel
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 8, 2017)
– The keys to Louisville’s tallest, most luxurious, full-service hotel will be in the hands of a proven hospitality leader, Scott Stuckey, who has nearly 30 years of experience at some of the nation’s best hotels. In preparation for the hotel’s spring 2018 opening, Stuckey will oversee all aspects of Omni Louisville’s hotel operations, including sales and marketing, rooms, food and beverage and risk management.
“Omni will be a powerful addition – not only to the skyline – but to the downtown scene and the buzz of Louisville,” Stuckey said. “Opening day will be very exciting. But the work we’re doing now is to ensure that Omni is authentically Louisville when our first guests arrive.”
Stuckey has a long history with Omni Hotels & Resorts. He first joined the company in 2005, as general manager of Omni Jacksonville Hotel. During his time with the brand, he has also served as the general manager of Omni Bedford Springs Resort, and general manager and managing director of Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center.
Under his leadership, these hotels won numerous awards in guest relations, community relations and revenue achievement. For example, while Stuckey led Omni Bedford Springs Resort in Pennsylvania, the hotel garnered global acclaim and was recognized as one of Travel + Leisure’s Top 500 Resorts in the World; named one of USA Today’s Top 10 Best Historic Hotels; and was included as one of the Best Spas in the World by Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards. He is re-joining the Omni family from The Gwen, a Luxury Collection Hotel in Chicago.
Area Managing Director Dan Piotrowski said he is thrilled to bring Stuckey back to Omni, describing him as someone who demonstrates the ability to lead teams toward ambitious goals.
“He is a tremendous asset to the company and beloved by the associates at every hotel he has worked at,” Piotrowski said. “With Scott holding the reins, Omni Louisville is ready to go!”
Stuckey said he and his family are looking forward to settling into Louisville and being able to appreciate the city’s reputation for hospitality. “We can’t wait to explore Louisville and get a first-hand taste of the culture and cuisine we’ve been hearing about.”
Omni veteran Nydia Hoskins will join the Omni Louisville executive team as Hotel Manager. Hoskins has spent her entire hospitality career with Omni Hotels & Resorts at properties including Omni Corpus Christi Hotel, Omni Fort Worth Hotel, Omni Austin Hotel Downtown and Omni Dallas Hotel before joining Omni Nashville Hotel in 2013. She began work in the front desk at Omni Corpus Christi and has performed nearly every task imaginable in hotel management.
“I’m thrilled to be part of the new Omni Louisville team, and to help launch the city’s newest luxury space,” said Hoskins. “Similar to Nashville, I know about the great culture, events and hospitality that makes Louisville such a charming and exciting city. Omni Louisville will be an amazing addition to an incredible town.”
When completed, Omni Louisville will be 30 stories tall, and have about 1.2 million square feet of space – about the same as the KFC YUM! Center. In addition to 612 guest rooms, it will have 225 luxury apartments, an urban food market, multiple restaurants, a speakeasy, a bowling alley, a spa and a rooftop pool and café.
