Off the Coast of Ordinary: New Leadership Announced
The Island Inn at 123 West is pleased to announce Scott Hale, former Director of Inns and Resorts for Columbia Hospitality, as the new Chief Experience Officer of the iconic San Juan Island development located at 123 West Street in the heart of Friday Harbor, WA. Misty Todd, owner of the Island Inn, is thrilled with this strategic leadership direction, sharing "Scott's Island and nationwide track record of success is precisely what our project needs to be everything our guests expect it to be - plus a whole lot more."
The Island Inn at 123 West will elevate San Juan Island lodging and guest experience by featuring intuitive guest service surpassed only by unmatched accommodations. Hale is excited to launch the Inn saying "I am thrilled. The opportunity to transform a distinctive venue and surpass guest expectation in the most beautiful location in the Islands is quite literally one of those once in a lifetime chances you hope to get."
Hale most recently oversaw operations at Lakedale Resort, Friday Harbor House and Ferry Landing Suites all located in Friday Harbor, WA after successful tenures at resorts in Long Key, FL, Kissimmee, FL, and the Outer Banks. "The Island Inn is truly the highest and best use of our Friday Harbor project. You just can't get anything like our penthouses or euros anywhere else in the islands" remarked Todd.
The Island Inn at 123 West will offer seven penthouses, six eurostyle guestrooms and anticipates a grand opening on July 4, 2011. Inn accommodations offer spaces for guests to unplug, connect and embrace Friday Harbor and San Juan Island. Todd added "Our goal is simple: completely blow away every guest every moment of their experience with us."
