PLYMOUTH, Michigan – It is with great pleasure that Emerald Hospitality Associates announces Jaclyn Taylor as the newly appointed General Manager at the Hilton Garden Inn Plymouth. She joined Emerald Hospitality Associates on Tuesday, November 13, 2018. Jaclyn was born and raised in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan. She started in the industry working a summer job at the Courtyard Marriott in downtown Detroit, while she was home for summers from college. She worked there for four years. During her time at the Courtyard, she realized she was meant for the industry and changed her college major to hospitality. She then worked for the MGM Grand hotel in downtown Detroit. This prompted her to decide she would prefer working with a branded hotel company rather than a casino hotel. She then moved out to North Salem, New York and began working at the Hilton Garden Inn in Danbury, Connecticut. She started there as a Guest Service Agent, and was promoted all the way up to the General Manager position. She worked there for more than seven years but realized she wanted to relocate to a hotel closer to her family in Michigan. She accepted a position at a Hilton Garden Inn in Indiana. She stayed there for one year, before applying for our open position at the Hilton Garden Inn Plymouth.
