Auro Hotels has hired Jonathan Brashier as general manager for Greenville’s new, dual-branded hotel, Residence Inn/SpringHill Suites. Brashier brings more than 20 years of experience in hotel management and previously served as general manager at Aloft Greenville Downtown. 

Located at Spring and Washington streets, the hotel is under construction with the goal of opening by early 2019. The space is designed to reflect the nature and beauty of the Upstate. The Marriott dual-branded hotel will have 286 suites, and feature a new restaurant and bar called Oak & Honey and more than 8,500 square feet of event space.

Brashier said he plans to use his energy and enthusiasm for hotel operations to provide quality experiences for both guests and associates.

“I love taking care of people,” Brashier said of his new role. “I want our guests to come to Greenville and have the best experience that they can possibly have. I want their expectations to be exceeded in every way. The team we are building, combined with every extraordinary detail of this fantastic new hotel, will have us aligned to do just that.”

Joining Brashier at Residence Inn/SpringHill Suites on his sales team are Else Voorhees, director of sales; Megan Jarrett, senior sales manager; and Kate Livingston, sales manager.
