WHO WE ARE
Hotels done differently. It's not just a slogan or catchphrase, it is who we are in everything we do. We believe in the power of People, Place and Character; ensuring our properties are a place where individuals are valued and celebrated as a tribute to the neighborhoods and the people of the communities in which we operate; elevating our associates' pride in who they are, where they live and who we serve.
Constructed in 1911 as a bottling and distribution plant for The Pabst Brewing Company, the building was also once used for beer and liquor distribution during Prohibition. This transformation represents another Aparium project aimed at fostering the development of a dynamic local neighborhood. The opening of this hotel will add further energy to the burgeoning Crossroads Arts District neighborhood, and will welcome locals and travelers alike to experience a new and unique destination.
Crossroads Hotel is managed by Aparium Hotel Group which was founded in 2011 by Chicago hospitality executive and entrepreneur Mario Tricoci. He saw a clear need for a company that could bring c-suite service and accommodations to underserved, yet distinct and important cities, while maintaining and celebrating the unadulterated character of each. Driven by the belief that all hospitality experiences should be fueled by the poetics of their surroundings, Aparium was born with an intense focus on unearthing the amazing moments unique to every city.
Since its founding, Aparium has grown into a new kind of hotel brand, one that ventures off the beaten path, both geographically and philosophically. It is a sophisticated hotel brand known for its singular ability to combine the business acumen of large hospitality companies with the charm of boutique hotels, bringing the disparate forces together in bustling, smaller markets.
WHO YOU ARE
Your career experience is eclectic and dynamic. Having grown your career from diverse operating roles into corporate or regional leadership roles within upper-upscale or luxury hotel companies, you became bored. You decided to follow your curiosity to boutique hotel and lifestyle brands within private companies. Your early experiences may not only have been in Finance, but possibly in Rooms or Food + Beverage or Sales + Marketing or something else. You are candid, articulate, and savvy in your partnership with ownership groups and are adaptable in how you engage with a variety of stakeholders.
For you to feel comfortable within our portfolio, you will have familiarity with secondary markets and recognize that hospitality differs from city to city and even from neighborhood to neighborhood. You are comfortable with casual sophistication and realize the concept of luxury has evolved to be approachable and not cookie-cutter. You are adventurous in your backyard and are known to have your pulse on your city and are a ready participant within your community. You get excited about the newest restaurant opening, amenity packaging, a guest service story created by an employee's intuition and not a standard, a new service concept, and get goosebumps when one of your direct reports gets promoted.
