At the Hampton Inn New Smyrna Beach (214 Flagler Avenue), General Manager, Mark Plebanski has made providing exceptional experiences for guests his top priority. Mark joined the team of the 112-room hotel, owned by Key International and managed by LBA Hospitality, in September of 2019.

Plebanski, a hospitality veteran of over 30 years, leads the team in all aspects of hotel operations, from hotel administration to guest service and satisfaction. In recent months, his role has expanded beyond practicing Hamptonality – Hampton by Hilton’s unique and unmatched approach to hospitality, to implementing Hilton’s CleanStay Initiative, ensuring the health & safety of every team member and guest. Leading by example, Plebanski works alongside his team sanitizing all areas of the hotel, ensuring all PPE protocols are followed, and keeping guest health & safety at the forefront of all operations.

“We want our guests to feel safe and be confident in their decision to stay with us.” Plebanski stated.
