Christian (Chris) Coffin joined the Hilton Columbus Downtown team as General Manager in September, 2011 and is thrilled to welcome your group our hotel.
A Hilton employee since 1998, Chris began his hospitality career with the Omni Park Central in New York City, where he quickly ascended from Room Service Manager, to Assistant Director of Food and Beverage, to Director of Front Office Operations and then on to Director of Rooms. After seven years in New York, Chris held various general manager positions including the repositioning and rebranding of several distressed properties including the Embassy Suites in Portland, ME and the Doubletree Hotel in Wilmington, DE.
In 2000, Chris had the opportunity to move within Hilton back to New England with the Doubletree Guest Suites – Boston which underwent a major renovation under new ownership prior to moving to the Hilton Boston Back Bay in 2009. While the opportunity in Columbus meant leaving the Boston area, the challenge of opening a new property was just too alluring.
Throughout his hospitality career, Chris has been very active with many civic, community and business organizations including the Community Advisory Committee in Boston, Back Bay Association as well as the Greater Boston, Greater Portland and Columbus Convention and Visitor Bureaus.
