Happy Holiday from Marcus Hotels and Resorts
Mark Fenton - GM of the Platinum Hotel


The Nevada Hotel & Lodging Association (NHLA) honored Mark Fenton, General Manager of The Platinum Hotel in Las Vegas, with the General Manager of the Year award at the annual Stars of the Industry Hospitality Awards Gala. Mark joined Marcus Hotels & Resorts in 2014, after nearly 25 years with Hyatt Hotels Corporation at properties in Waikiki, San Francisco, Orlando and Austin. At Marcus, Mark was the GM at Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark and the Resident Manager at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, before moving to The Platinum in early 2018. Our Marcus GMs are known for their positive impact on both the properties they lead, as well as in the communities of which they are a part – and Mark is a stellar example. The criteria for this award was based on service to the hospitality industry, NHLA, and the community. One of Mark’s secrets to his success is “finding opportunities from guest and associate feedback and involving associates in their implementation, and being inspired by ideas that haven’t been done before by seeing what is possible from a new perspective.”


Brit + Co published an article “These Luxe Hotels are the *Perfect* Excuse to Get Away During The Holiday Season” and featured our Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee. “With all the festive feels and convenient locations across the U.S., [these hotels] are a perfect departure from the day-to-day to reset and refresh.” Read what they share about The Pfister’s sophisticated Midwest charm, true taste of Milwaukee culture, and how you’ll be treated like a king or queen.

Fred Rogers of the children’s television show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood is a childhood icon to thousands who grew up between 1968 and 2001, the years the show aired. Mr. Rogers had a unique way of helping children understand difficult and scary topics and feelings, creating a safe space to talk about them where the underlying theme was always kindness. One of Mr. Rogers’ many meaningful quotes, which was quoted in his obituary in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, was: “We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say, ‘It’s not my child, note my community, not my world, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.” The movie about Fred Rogers, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, is currently playing in theatres.
