He was hired as the Banquet Manager at the newly renovated Louisville Marriott East and promoted to the Food and Beverage Manager about four months later. J.C. was promoted to the AGM at the Hilton Garden Inn in March 2014. In 2017, J.C. transitioned to AGM at the Seelbach Hilton Louisville.

When John is not at the hotel he is running around with his two kids. His kids are very active and they both compete on different teams in and out of school. His daughter is a cheerleader and runs on the track and cross country teams and his son is the shortstop on the local baseball team. J.C. stays active by running several road races each year and finished his 1st marathon last year. When they have some downtime and are not competing, they can be found at the lake enjoying the sun.
While studying Civil Engineering at the University of Kentucky Amber took a job at the Springhill Suites by Marriott Redmile. It was there, as a Front Desk Representative, that everything changed…she fell in love with the hospitality industry and Musselman Hotels. From working the front desk to being promoted to Sales Coordinator, then Sales Manager, and finally Director of Sales and Marketing. The now 13 years in the industry continue to excite, challenge, and grow Amber personally and professionally. In her free time, Amber enjoys spending time with her amazing son Jackson. She also enjoys traveling, exercising, kayaking, watching movies and…eating.

Spacious rooms with appealing Decor. Beds are awesome! Friendly, helpful employees at the front desk and the bar in the lobby. Convenient parking and restaurants, an aquarium and movie theater within walking distance. Just a short drive across the bridge to downtown Cincinnati for sporting and cultural events. We arrived late for check in and were pleasantly surprised to find that we had been upgraded to a lovely suite. I will definitely stay at this hotel again when traveling to Cincinnati.
