LISA POWERS!

Lisa Powers 2.jpg

 

Unique, professional, and sincere are just a few words guests have used to describe Lisa Powers.  As Hutton Hotel Concierge, Lisa’s love of adventure and her natural curiosity about the ever- changing landscape of Nashville have contributed to her ability to create memorable experiences for her guests. Lisa considers herself extremely fortunate to have been trained by Laura Cunningham, a member of Les Clefs d’Or USA and a former Music City Concierge Association ambassador. Lisa possesses a genuine curiosity for people’s stories, which translates perfectly to her role as concierge. Listening to each guest’s journey, learning their likes and dislikes, and customizing experiences that they can’t get anywhere else in the city is what makes her an integral part of The Hutton Hotel team.

Lisa grew up in Waverly, a small town about 60 miles west of Nashville.  She graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelor of Science in Building Construction before starting her career with Gilbane Building Company. During her construction career, she worked in several exciting cities such as Orlando, New York City, Philadelphia, Princeton, San Francisco, Atlanta and her all-time favorite, Chicago. As family and friends came to visit, she was always dubbed the “official tour guide” because of her adventuresome spirit.

One of things Lisa enjoyed most about moving to a new place every couple of years was having the opportunity to play tour guide when friends and family visited.  While living in Orlando, a trip to Walt Disney World was a requirement for all of her visitors.  During the time she lived on the Upper East Side of New York City, she would take friends to see the Statue of Liberty, catch a Broadway show, go to the top of the Empire State building, and at that time, visit the World Trade Center. 

 Lisa moved from the Windy City to “Music City” about eight years ago to be closer to family.  She became a realtor for Sotheby’s, selling luxury condominiums. She also sold the city and the lifestyle that Nashville offered. She officially started her career in hospitality with Marriott in 2015 and had the opportunity to join the Hutton Hotel Team in 2017. It was Lisa’s mother who originally came up with the notion that working as a concierge might be a good fit for her youngest daughter.

 Lisa enjoys meeting new people and establishing meaningful relationships.  She attributes much of her success as Hutton Concierge to her ability to connect with her guests on a personal level, sharing her personal experiences and her worldly travels.
