If I could pick a brand representative to work with on our hotel projects, it would be Nancy Keyes. She is personable, responsive, logical, creative, and organized. She thinks like a developer while respecting the needs of the brand. I’ve worked with Nancy over the last 4 years on two very difficult adaptive re-use developments. Aloft New Orleans, was a 31 story historic office building that was converted into a mixed use development incorporating an Aloft Hotel, apartments and a parking garage. Nancy was instrumental in the initial space planning and was able to respect the historic requirements from the National Park Service. Nancy’s creative problem solving was constant throughout the project. She respected our budget constraints while reinforcing the needs of the hotel and brand.
The experience that Nancy has from overseeing hundreds of unique hospitality projects makes her an invaluable asset to any developer and design team. There are very few people in my professional career that I respect as much as Nancy.
