Greg Durrer joined Marriott International in 1997, with the Residence Inn Brand in Portland, Oregon. Since that time, Greg has held numerous operational leadership positions at several Marriott Luxury, full-service, and select-service hotels: the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes, Orlando World Center Marriott, and Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay are a few of the highlights. When he has time for leisure, Greg loves to ski and snowboard, travel the world, explore and adventure in new destinations that are off the beaten path, and cook on his Traeger. With his long standing career in luxury and his love of exploration and adventure, the move to W Aspen was a perfectly orchestrated symbiotic next step in his decorated career. Greg and his wife, Julie, their three children, and Ollie (a 4 lb. Morkie and youngest member of the family) are ecstatic to be a new addition to the vibrant Aspen community and culture.
W Aspen will be the first luxury hotel to open in Aspen in 25 years and will be the brand's second Mountain Escape after W Verbier in Switzerland. The hotel is located at the base of Aspen Mountain and will have ski-in/ski-out access to one of the world's most coveted slopes, stunning 360-degree Mountain View's and striking architectural and interior design.
