Local Hotelier Receives Lifetime Achievement Award 
Andrea Thornton of Hotel Monteleone honored by Historic Hotels of America

 

New Orleans (January 18, 2013) - Following her recent retirement from Hotel Monteleone as Director of Sales and Marketing, Andrea Thornton was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from Historic Hotels of America at the 22rd annual Historic Hotels Awards. Her 35 years in the hospitality industry were marked by building partnerships and promoting the hotel through social media, public relations and building an aggressive sales team.

Thornton, representing Hotel Monteleone, was the only Louisiana winner among the 53 honorees at the awards ceremony. The Lifetime Achievement Award is the highest honor given to a hotelier who has continuously shown exceptional guest service, is a leader in his/her industry and who instills a passion in others for historic hotel preservation.

"We are proud to have had Andrea as a member of our team, and believe she is fully deserving of this award," said Ronald Pincus, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Hotel Monteleone. "Her commitment to Hotel Monteleone, her savvy marketing skills and boundless energy helped tremendously to raise the awareness of the hotel and contribute greatly to our success. This award is a wonderful recognition of her lifetime of service."

In her role as Director of Sales and Marketing, Thornton oversaw the sales, reservations, catering and conference service departments of Hotel Monteleone. She was also the driving force in the historic hotel's 125th anniversary celebrations. Since retiring, Thornton is still a regular to the hotel, but now she has the luxury of swirling the Carousel Bar as a beloved patron.
