    Reports To:

    Director of Sales, Ulysses

    Responsible For:

    Hotel Ulysses, Baltimore - Ash Hotels

    Job Summary:

    ASH Hotels designs, develops, owns, and operates a very special collection of properties. In our world, a hotel is much more than a destination to meet, dine, or sleep. Rather, it is a dynamic site of imagery and emotions, interactions and sensations manifesting within the walls of a beautifully restored local legend - a living movie set.

    In fall of 2022 ASH Hotels opened Hotel Ulysses, a place where wanderers from anywhere can come for one-of-a-kind experiences whether they are popping out of their Baltimore studio for a drink or need a place to stay during their east coast tour. To venture into Baltimore’s rich history and vibrant community by way of the landmark Latrobe building feel’s only natural — an icon with a checkered past that has been restored to carry on its legacy. Nestled into the neighborhood of Mt. Vernon, the sprawling site has 116 rooms for stay alongside an eccentric cocktail lounge and an all-day salon style café that will serve breakfast, lunch, aperitivo

    and dinner.
