Andrea Maturo, Catering Sales Director, has been part of the team since April 2012. Andrea loves working at a venue with newly renovated event spaces that are full of character and charisma. And she loves the opportunity to connect with her brides and grooms and event planners at a personal level, and meeting so many exciting people at an exciting time in their lives. “Spending time with each new couple doesn’t feel like a business transaction. I love getting to know them as friends.” She takes pride in making sure that clients don’t feel rushed, in encouraging them to ask a million questions, and sharing the moment when they see the ballroom for the first time on their big day. Her advice? “Take it a day at a time. Ask for advice – that’s what we’re here for!” Andrea is devoted to her family, to her dog, and to embarking on new culinary adventures. She even had her own wedding at a Hotels Unlimited wedding venue and it was everything she’s dreamed of!
Jess Abrams, Banquet Manager, joined the Hotels Unlimited team in 2021. She was a teacher for 10 years before moving into sales and banquet management. She loves cooking, event planning, and helping people make their big day as special as possible. Jess will never forget how amazing her Maître D’ was when she got married (fun fact – her wife also works in the Hotels Unlimited family!) and she hopes to bring that same level of comfort, calm, and care to Atlantis/Coral Ballroom couples so their big day can be just as amazing. Jess is also an active musician who has traveled the world on tour, and when she’s home she loves spending time with her dogs and her thriving vegetable garden. Her advice for event planners? “Take a moment in the reception to just stand back with your new spouse and look around the room. Look at all the people there to celebrate you and your love. That, for me, was the best moment.”
Angel Andrade, Banquet Manager, has been with the Hotels Unlimited family for over 19 years. His passion for event planning and knowing exactly what a bride or groom needs even before they do have earned him high praises. From bustling a bride’s dress to lining up the wedding party before the ceremony, to helping the groom and his groomsmen with their ties, Angel has done it all. His wedding planning tips? “Sit back for a moment and take it all in,” Angel explains. “Follow your dreams, and let your day be everything you always imagined. We are here to see that through!”
