Olivia Hoblit, formerly the manager of Seaside Amelia Inn, has returned to Innisfree Hotels as a regional manager to oversee both the Seaside Amelia Inn and Innisfree’s all-new, dual-branded Marriott. Based in Pensacola, Florida, Innisfree Hotels plans to open the dual-branded Courtyard and Springhill Suites by Marriott property in Spring 2021.

Olivia has more than 22 years of experience in the hospitality industry, holding a wide range of titles. Following her five-year stretch as general manager of Seaside Amelia Inn, Olivia joined The Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island, a Five-Diamond luxury resort as the assistant rooms executive. While at The Ritz-Carlton, she served as a member of the opening team, successfully reopening St. Thomas location in 2019. She was also nominated as “Marriott Ops Star” for going above and beyond operational expectations. Olivia hopes her new role as regional manager will add to her accolades.

“It’s exciting for me to be back home with the Innisfree family,” she said. “Innisfree has always been big on community involvement, and it’s an honor to be part of the growth on Amelia Island and the opportunities it will bring to this community.”

The dual-branded Marriott will feature a SpringHill Suites and Courtyard with shared amenities, including a resort-style pool deck with in-pool seating, a courtyard with fire pit area and poolside bar, fitness room, 6,086 sq. ft. of meeting space and a location within walking distance of the Atlantic Ocean.

“I’m very excited to manage this portfolio and achieve new things with a successful company like Innisfree,” she said. “And I’m glad it’s right here in my hometown.”

Bolstering her workplace success, Olivia has served on the Executive Committee of the Florida Restaurant Lodging Association (FRLA) as Lodging Director/Secretary-Treasurer since 2017 and will take the reins as Vice Chairwoman in 2021. She also serves as a board member on the Amelia Island Tourist Development Council (TDC), Advisory

Council member for the University of West Florida Global Hospitality and Tourism Management and President of the Trinity Love Hoblit Foundation, which supports and funds neurological research, training and treatment for brain aneurysms, strokes and other cerebrovascular conditions both nationally and internationally.
