Allen Weiss

New service development expert Allen Weiss has worked for leading hotel brands including Marriott, Radisson, Westin, Red Lion, and many more.

Allen earned his BS from the Cornell Hotel School and his MS in Hospitality Management from Florida International University in Miami. He has spent his entire 20-year career at Marriott in both property-level and brand management leadership roles and as an area director. In addition, he directed international sales for Radisson Hotels. He is now President of Allen Weiss Hospitality and an active consultant in boutique hotel branding.

Allen spent a year abroad teaching for the American Hotel Academy in Romania and has more than a decade of experience in higher education. With Allen's assistance, a Renaissance hotel in Tampa, Florida was able to begin implementing and carrying out plans for upgraded meeting space. Putting in a retractable roof on the space after some market research brought in an extra $500,000. Service improvements yield marketable gains.
