New Orleans company takes over management of Milwaukee airport hotels

Expotel Hospitality Services Inc. has assumed management of two leading Milwaukee airport hotels, the Crowne Plaza and Ramada Plaza.


Located adjacent to one another, the two hotels are only minutes from General Mitchell International Airport and offer a range of guest amenities as well as meeting spaces for corporate and social events and weddings.

Valerie Casper, formerly sales director of the Crowne Plaza Milwaukee Airport, has been named general manager of the Ramada Plaza Milwaukee Airport. A general manager executive search is under way for the Crowne Plaza Milwaukee Airport while John Koss, Expotel’s regional director, acts as interim GM.

Expotel Hospitality president Kerry Ranson said, “These two prominent hotel properties serve a vital role in the Milwaukee travel and hospitality mix. Each one is operating under a proven brand flag, and we’re excited about our goal for only enhancing both the guest and employee experience at both locations. We believe these hotels are among the finest in the Milwaukee region. We look forward to leading the management and team members at each hotel to achieve even greater success in the future.”

New Orleans-based Expotel Hospitality Services represents several major hotel franchise companies and owns and operates 16 hotels in seven states.
