With a successful track record in both hotel management and sales, Hughes will oversee the hotel’s operations, while delivering financial results, growing market share and cultivating workplace culture. Hotel Vintage Portland underwent a $16-million renovation in 2015 and has maintained consistent rankings as a top Oregon hotel, which along with Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ industry reputation, helped draw her toward this position.

Hughes grew up on Maui, Hawaii, and fell naturally into the hospitality industry. Her mom worked for a vacation rental firm, where Hughes would spend weekends as a child, moving eventually to a front desk position and then transitioning to property management. In her free time, Hughes enjoys exploring the great outdoors with her family, as well as reading and cooking – the latter of which include a nice glass of wine.
