The Westin Nashville has promoted Jeff Crabiel, its former executive assistant manager and director of rooms, general manager. Crabiel has 10 years of experience in the hotel and luxury resort industry, about seven of which he has spent in managerial positions in Nashville.

“Since pre-opening, Jeff has been an integral part of the evolution of The Westin Nashville,” Ray Waters, VP of the hotel’s ownership company Castlerock Asset Management, said in a statement. “He is the perfect person to lead this property and team toward future successes.”

Before joining The Westin Nashville three years ago, Crabiel spent nearly four years at the 330-key Hilton Nashville Downtown, where he worked as front-office manager and then director of rooms. Before those roles, he also served as front-office manager of the Hilton Grand Vacations Parc Soleil in Orlando, front-office supervisor of Sheraton Vistana Villages in Orlando and general manager of a Lees Inn and Suites.
