Olga Maciques recently won two prestigious awards for her work as Director of Sales for SpringHill Suites By Marriott Houston Northwest, an Oldham Goodwin property.
Last week, Maciques was named SpringHill Suites Sales Leader of the Year at the Marriott Select Brand Awards in Anaheim. Awarded to only one sales professional in the SpringHill Suites brand, the honor recognizes Maciques’ excellence in customer service, exceeding sales and revenue goals, and staff management and development.
Maciques also recently was honored by the Greater Houston Lodging Association in the category of Sales, Marketing, Public Relations, and Revenue. That award stemmed in part from her success generating business at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic was crippling much of the hospitality industry. One of Maciques’ efforts in 2020 resulted in the biggest single piece of business in the hotel’s history. Maciques was selected from a record number of nominees as the in-person awards were held for the first time since 2019 due to the pandemic.
Regional General Manager Nicholas Albers praised Maciques for her diligence and professionalism.
“I am extremely proud to see Olga earn these awards showcasing her efforts and hard work over the years,” Albers said. “Olga brings a high level of professionalism, prestige, and hard work and the hotel has benefitted significantly from all those efforts. Through the hardships of hurricanes, the pandemic, and an ever-changing hotel market, she has stayed focused on her job and set her goals to the highest levels. We are ecstatic about her amazing achievements with these awards!”
A 20-plus-year veteran of the hospitality industry, Maciques has worked for almost every major brand in both full- and select-service hotels. She has worked for Oldham Goodwin since SpringHill Suites Houston Northwest opened in 2015.
