Jim is married with three college-aged children, two boys, and the youngest a girl.  Jim likes all sports, his favorite being baseball.  Jim still plays softball and enjoys most anything outside.  He loves his job where he can keep a smooth running ship and helping others out as well.

Susan has been with Musselman Hotels since 2005, where she began her second career as a Night Housekeeping Supervisor. Five years ago, she had the opportunity to begin the opening process of Hilton Garden Inn Northeast and is still striving to give guests the best service, cleanest rooms and greatest away-from-home experience possible. In Susan’s spare time, she enjoys watching her grandkids play sports and spending time with her family.

James has been in the Hospitality world since 2014 and has experience ranging from the Galt House, and the Louisville Marriott East.  He’s a Bourbon Enthusiast starting to dab into Scotches, an amateur spelunker looking for the best local Dives and Speak-easys, and a connoisseur of board games.  He’s lived most of his life locally, even graduating from a Pilot Tech school here in Louisville.  He’s excited to grow with the company and sample from all the fine qualities that Musselman Hotels has to offer.

The staff were the most courteous and friendly that I've ever had the good fortune to encounter over many years of staying in hotels. The location was perfect for my office, the check-in process smooth and friendly. The smiles and good nature of every staff member I encountered stood out as being remarkable and took that which I expect to receive in the US to a whole new level. Highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area.
