Robert Ekelmann, Assistant General Manager

Assistant General Manager

I’ve been in Hospitality for over 16 years which 15 years of them was with Marriott hotels where I’ve been a General Manager of Courtyard by Marriott-West Des Moines, Iowa; Residence Inn by Marriott-Atlanta, GA; and a Dual General Manger for Springhill Suites & Towneplace Suites by Marriott- Phoenix, AZ. When relocating back to the Chicago-land area I joined the Hilton family of hotels as the General Manger of the Hampton Inn and Suites- Lincolnshire, IL. I’m most excited to recently join the team at the Hampton Inn and Suites River North- Chicago, IL as the Assistant General Manager.

I’m a true Chicagoan inside and out because I love everything Chicago has to offer!  Nothing more “Chicago” than a Cubs game in the bleachers (NORTH SIDE!!), shopping Mag Mile, Afternoons in Millennium Park, pizza from Gino’s East, riding the CTA, drinks at the Signature Room, and long walks on Lakeshore Drive, I will however never be a Bears fan- It’s Green Bay Packers all the way!
