Courtyard by Marriott Lake Charles, Louisiana Opens
General Manager Brian Durio said, "I am excited to be back in the Lake Charles area and am looking forward to opening the new Courtyard by Marriott Lake Charles. The hotel will be a great addition to the strong Lake Charles market. With being so convenient to the local casinos and area businesses, I feel we will quickly become the premier hotel for guests traveling to the area." Durio's management team includes Sales Manager Gertinna Chretien Simmons and Assistant General Manager Daniel Wygoda.
When owner W. Brent Lumpkin decided to seek one of the top premier hotel developers in the country for his real estate partnership's resort property, he called InterMountain Management. Lumpkin's desire to bring a Courtyard by Marriott into the Lake Charles marketplace was met with InterMountain's experience and ability. Lumpkin's partnership, including James H. Boyer and Lee W. Boyer, both of Lake Charles, impressed with InterMountain and their leadership, elected to become a partner in a two-Marriott hotel development with InterMountain Management. Lumpkin and his partnership have developed and invested in shopping centers, industrial parks, offices and hotels in the Lake Charles, Sulphur and Westlake communities.
As one of North America's largest hotel management and development companies, InterMountain Management specializes in the select-service and extended-stay hotel segments. For over 30 years, InterMountain Management's dedication to success is proven in the results as a hotel owner, management company and hotel developer.
