Highgate, investment and development company, has appointed Marla Kelly as the Complex Director of Sales and Marketing of Romer Waikīkī at The Ambassador and the upcoming Romer House, scheduled to open in June. In her new role, Kelly will be responsible for spearheading all sales initiatives aimed at optimizing revenue and overall profitability as well as supervising marketing and public relations strategies for both properties.

An experienced and passionate hospitality professional with over 15 years in the industry, Kelly brings experience from the Hawaii Convention Center, where she served as the Director of Sales & Marketing. Prior, she served as the Regional Director of Group Sales for Kyo-ya Hotels & Resorts, under the management of Starwood Hotels & Resorts. She has also held sales and marketing roles with the Moana Surfrider and Hyatt Regency Waikīkī.

“We are excited to welcome Marla to the Romer team, and we are confident that her wealth of experience, strategic vision and leadership will contribute to the ongoing success of Romer’s Hawaii hotels,” said Kelly Sanders, President, Highgate Hawaii Group. “Marla’s expansive network and track record in Hawaii will add immense value and inspire creativity among her colleagues.”

Centered around Waikīkī’s creative culture, Romer Waikīkī at the Ambassador invites guests and residents to discover a genuine neighborhood experience. The recently reimagined space introduces a locally conscious experience featuring unique programming, lively dining and entertainment at Waikīkī Swim & Social Club, and easy access to the island’s legendary outdoor activities. Guest rooms feature modern retro décor with private lanais, lounge space, and noteworthy touches, such as locally sourced and roasted Big Island coffee. Romer House, Romer Waikīkī’s sister property and the third installment of Romer Neighborhood Hotels, is set to open in 2024 as an adult-only venue. The anticipation of Romer House is palpable, with high expectations for another standout addition to Oahu’s hospitality offerings.
