Anchoring downtown Denver’s Union Station neighborhood, Hotel Indigo Denver appointed Scott Paradine as GM. Paradine joins Hotel Indigo Denver with 19 years of experience in the hospitality industry. Spending the first five years of his career as an operational manager, Paradine moved onto sales for nine years.
Most recently, Paradine spent four years as GM at the Fairfax Marriott in Fairfax, Va., where he led the hotel to the top 12 percent in North America for GSS Overall Satisfaction in 2013, 2015 and 2016. He undertook several large projects during his tenure, including a complete renovation, restaurant construction and redesign, elevator modernization, pool-to-fitness center conversion and more. Paradine also helped the hotel to realize gross operating profit growth of more than 40 percent from 2013 to 2016. In 2017, he was elected to the board of directors for Visit Fairfax as a result of his achievements and commitment to the hotel and area.
“I am thrilled to be part of the Hotel Indigo Denver team,“ Paradine said in a statement. “With an uncompromising focus on quality, I look forward to providing a refreshing and unique hotel experience that encourages our guests to get out and explore our neighborhoods.”
Before the Fairfax Marriott, Paradine was the director of sales and marketing at Richmond Marriott in Richmond, Va.; the associate director of sales at the Hyatt Regency Orange County in Anaheim, Calif.; and he served as the senior sales manager at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center, where he booked more than $14.5 million in rooms sales in two years.
