  • Erik Schacht

    Erik, Banquet Manager, has been in the hospitality industry for over 14 years. What started as just a job to make some money while in school, quickly turned into passion that he knew he wanted to pursue as his career path. Lucky for us, Erik discovered Hotels Unlimited through a local career fair and has been a part of the team since November 2018. His kindness, caring personality, and meticulous attention to detail are why our clients adore him. “When a couple tells me I made their dreams come true, it makes everything worth it.”

    Samantha Garibaldi

    Catering Sales Director, was born to be in the catering sales industry. Samantha has always known that she has an extremely outgoing and extroverted personality, and this helped lead her to a career in wedding and event planning. She started work in the industry as a wedding coordinator for a small “Mom & Pop” venue, gained much exposure and experience, worked at our sister-property, Crystal Ballroom, for several years, and has been at the Atlantis Ballroom since 2019. Her favorite part about work is being part of someone’s special day, and how this is not only challenging but extremely gratifying. She says, “I am fortunate to have the opportunity of meeting all types of people and let’s face it… being social is my forte! I look back to when I was younger and had no idea what I wanted for my future, to now, and think about how there is truly no other career I could see myself in!” Her biggest strengths are her thoroughness, attention to detail and being a tremendously organized person.

    Blair Applegate

    Blair Applegate, Catering Sales Administrator, started at the Days Hotel as a front desk representative in the summer of 2017. She did such an amazing job working and communicating with guests that she has since been promoted to work in the catering sales office. Blair has always known she wanted to go into hospitality because she’s always had a passion for working with people. Her favorite part about being a catering sales administrator is “being able to make a bride and groom’s wedding day special and everything they had imagined it to be!” She enjoys working with so many unique couples and loves a challenge to get them exactly what they want for their special day. A quote she lives by is, “To achieve big things, you have to have big dreams.” Her greatest strengths are working and communicating with people along with her dedication and determination to her work!

    Jennifer Hayden Schel

    Assistant General Manager, has been with the company since September 2011 and makes a lasting impression on every guest, client, and staff member she meets. “I always feel that when someone walks into the property, you never know what they may be going through. All people need to be treated with kindness and respect, and they will always remember you for that.” Jennifer’s kind, friendly, and professional demeanor shines through every day – just read any of our amazing reviews. It’s hard to avoid her name! She says her biggest strength is her lasting relationships with hotel guests and clients. “They come back year after year to see us and always ask for me personally. I couldn’t ask for anything better!

    Reviews We Love

    • I had my rehearsal brunch, ceremony, and reception there. Everything turned out beautiful, and everything went so smooth. The Atlantis Ballroom is such a beautiful venue to get married and celebrate a marriage! I could not be happier with how everything turned out. My guests have been talking about it for the past few days, and they said it was some of the best wedding food they have ever had!

    • I had the pleasure of hosting my youngest daughter’s Sweet Sixteen at the Atlantis Ballroom on August 27, 2016. I have 2 other daughters which have had their sweet sixteens at other venues, and I will tell you, that the Atlantis Ballroom by far blew away the others with their service. I had a “mini wedding” as referenced to me by all my guests. Everyone raved about the amazing time they had. From the very first phone call with Jennifer M, all my needs were attended to. Planning was made very easy and the prices were very reasonable for the package we had chosen. The Atlantis Ballroom has a very big dance floor, and with our very large family, we knew this would be a big plus.

    • The food was delicious and the portions were huge! I found the Atlantis ballroom super affordable compared to other venues because they include so much in their packages. And did I mention the food was delicious??

    • The entire experience at the Atlantis Ballroom and at the hotel was exactly what we wanted! Everyone from our old school Italian grandparents to the youngest guest loved the food. We were treated like we are all family. They bent over backwards for us. You guys will not regret having your special day here.

    • Jennifer always took the time to answer all the questions we had and helped us during the planning process. They truly made sure our day was a special one! We also felt well taken care of, because the staff was constantly checking on us, as the Bride and Groom, and asking if there was anything we needed. It really gave us the opportunity to enjoy the night for ourselves.

    • From the word go, things couldn’t have been any more perfect. The hotel is beautiful. Treated me and all of my guests as if we were royalty. They fixed things that I had no idea even needed to be fixed. Through the whole wedding planning process I never felt like a customer but instead like a part of their family.
