Hilton Garden Inn in Omaha Has New General Manager

The Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Omaha has a new General Manager, William Farrell, Jr.

Regional Vice President of White Lodging, Lucie Manley, said, “Bill’s proven track record over the last 10 years, and his operation expertise make him a perfect fit to ensure the transition of our newest hotel is a success.”

William Farrell, Jr., has been a White Lodging employee since graduating from Purdue University with a degree in hospitality and tourism management. He has a reputation for driving results across multiple brands. He began his career as a Front Office Manager at the Courtyard by Marriott in Fort Wayne, Indiana and was then promoted to General Manager at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Memphis, Tennessee.

Farrell helped improve operations at the 86-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott at the Indianapolis airport in 2003. During his four months as General Manager, Farrell made necessary staffing and operations changes to significantly increase the hotel’s guest satisfaction scores. He moved to Chicago and worked for a year as the Front Office Manager at the Courtyard by Marriott Magnificent Mile and then spent two years as the General Manager at the Courtyard by Marriott in northeast Louisville. After holding that position, Farrell was asked to aid in reviving the performance of the SpringHill Suites by Marriott in north Louisville. He was able to reverse the property’s direction within 18 months and moved to Austin to help at the Courtyard by Marriott and Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott.

Farrell was the Director of Operations at the Westin Austin at the Domain, prior to his new position in Omaha. Farrell said, “I like a challenging position, and I consider myself to be a good team builder. I am looking forward to developing the potential of the Hilton Garden Inn. It’s a great location and a great property.”
