GrandStay in Mount Horeb Announces New General Manager
The GrandStay® Hotel & Suites, Mount Horeb-Madison, announced today that they have hired a new General Manager.
Chairman of the Board for the LLC ownership group, Michael McNall, said today, “Joshua (Josh) Hinze is the new General Manager for our hotel effective today! Many of you may recognize Josh, who has served as the Head Wrestling Coach for Mount Horeb High School since 2013. His proven team leadership, customer service management, sales and administrative skills are exactly what we need for this next phase of our hotel’s development.”
Josh lives in Mount Horeb where he is expected to continue as the head wrestling coach for the Mount Horeb School District. Josh said today, “I am extremely grateful and honored to be chosen as the General Manager at the Grand Stay Hotel & Suites! I plan to continue building on the great culture that has already been established by providing an enjoyable environment everyone is proud to be a part of, while continuing to provide a professional and memorable experience for all of our guests. I am excited to start acquiring knowledge through the training process and I look forward to meeting all of you within the coming weeks.”
“The GrandStay Hotel & Suites, Mount Horeb-Madison recently celebrated six years of continuous service to our community in spite of the challenges of the COVID 19 pandemic,” said Brad Murphy, President of the Board. “We have many regular guests who rely on our hospitality and clean facility, so we remain committed to accommodate them.”
The GrandStay Hotel & Suites in Mount Horeb is owned by nineteen Mount Horeb area residents, who six years ago recognized the need for upgraded local lodging and related services. Even though none had previous hotel experience, they formed an LLC and invested the equity necessary to build and operate a highly rated facility located on the eastern edge of Mount Horeb and Highway 18/151. Within 9 miles of Epic Systems in Verona, 11 miles of Vortex Optics in Barneveld and just down the road from Duluth Trading Company’s headquarters in Mount Horeb, these fast-growing companies have come to depend on the GrandStay for lodging and related services.
During its six years of operation, GrandStay has received outstanding ratings from all travel services. It has been awarded the Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor based on customer reviews every year of operation. It is a leader within the GrandStay brand, as well, earning brand-wide awards for customer service, sales and marketing, and hospitality leadership.
