The Woodlands (Houston), Texas, March 2017… BENCHMARK®, a global hospitality company, has named Katie Tully director of guest & owner services for The Grove Resort & Spa Orlando.  The 878 room all-suite hotel, which is a Benchmark Resorts & Hotels property, opened its first phase on March 10, 2017, just minutes from Walt Disney World® Resort in Orlando, Florida.  Bill Lee, The Grove’s general manager, made the announcement.

“As a resort property with a residential component in one of the world’s most sought after travel destinations, it is important to have a leader in this role with the ability to effectively serve those who opt into the ownership opportunity at The Grove,” said Mr. Lee. “Katie’s experience working with resorts on the same scale as The Grove will provide an important benefit to both our owners and hotel guests.”

Katie Tully most recently served as the director of rental management for Reunion Resort, also located in Orlando, where she was responsible for the administration and management of the property’s home and villa rental programs.

Ms. Tully is a graduate of John Carroll University.

About The Grove Resort & Spa Orlando

The Grove Resort & Spa Orlando opened its first phase in March 2017 as an expansive 106-acre hotel destination located just minutes from the west entrance of Walt Disney World®. Set on Lake Austin and amid a portion of Central Florida’s conservation grounds, the resort is a sanctuary from the boisterous pace of the outside world, neighboring theme parks, luxury shopping, and entertainment centers. The Grove launched with 184 of its 878 residential-style suites with full kitchens, full-size washers and dryers, multiple bathrooms, and screened patios that offer guests all the comforts of home, while the resort’s hearty collection of amenities deliver the luxuries of a full-service resort. Guests currently enjoy three swimming pools, a selection of watersports at The Grove’s Lake Austin Pier, the intimate Escape Spa, fitness center, and a children’s game room, as well as food and drink options that include the large-scale grab-and-go-style Alfresco Market, Element and Zest lounges. 6,000 square feet of flexible space is available for weddings, family reunions, and other meetings and special events. Additional amenities will open later this year, including the three meal-a-day Valencia restaurant and the poolside Springs Bar & Grill, as well as added guest accommodations. The Grove’s signature Surfari Water Park with an interactive water structure with multiple slides, a lazy river stretching more than 725 feet, and a dual rider surf simulator, as well as its own poolside eatery, Longboard Bar & Grill, are planned for early 2018. The Grove Resort & Spa Orlando is managed by Houston, Texas-based BENCHMARK®, a global hospitality company.
