Morton, Illinois (May 1, 2017) - RBP Hotels, Inc. DBA Park Inn® by Radisson, Morton, IL has chosen Dora Hospitality, LLC to manage its hotel, conference center, and adjoining restaurant.
The 96-room hotel is quite popular, often earning repeat business and fond reviews on travel sites like Trip Advisor. The restaurant is also a traveler and local favorite: Paddy O’Flaherty’s Irish Pub is known for its tasty menu, copious pints, and friendly staff. The 10,000 sq. ft. conference center, formerly known as Ashland House, is a great multi-purpose space, capable of accommodating up to 350 people.
“This is a great property with a great location, and with a few small tweaks it will be even better,” said Vince Dora, President of Dora Hospitality. “This hotel has an ownership group that truly cares about the service and experience it provides its guests, and Dora Hospitality is looking forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.” Mr. Dora has been on-site at the hotel with his appointed “take-over team” ensuring a smooth transition as trainings, systems, and procedures are transitioned.
Located just off I-74 and 20 minutes from the Peoria airport, the Park Inn by Radisson is close to area businesses as well as local attractions. Hotel amenities include free Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfast, an indoor pool, and fitness center. They even have pet-friendly rooms, and will store your luggage if you arrive early or check out but still want to explore the town of Morton, lauded as “one of Illinois’ friendliest and fastest-growing communities.” And don’t forget to grab a reuben and a pint from O’Flaherty’s—there’s no denying the appeal of a full-service restaurant and bar inside your hotel.
The hotel has also welcomed a new General Manager who will spearhead driving guest satisfaction. Rebecca Siltman, most recently General Manager at the Mark Twain, a boutique hotel in Peoria, has been training at Dora Hospitality’s corporate office and within a few Dora-managed hotels. She arrived with the Dora take-over team this week as well.
“We look forward to working with the owners as well as Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and the Park Inn by Radisson brand to renovate this hotel into a truly unique property. We will be leveraging everything that Park Inn by Radisson brings from website optimization, Club Carlson SM loyalty program, and much more,” said Mr. Dora. Estimates on the renovation have not yet been finalized but are expected to exceed $1 million dollars.
"We are excited to partner with Dora Hospitality to take this hotel to the next level," said Jeffrey Freund, senior vice president, Midscale Brands, Americas, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. "We know Dora is committed to providing guests with the friendly, positive and vibrant experience Park Inn by Radisson stands for."
