Cory Stewart and Travis Hurley: Two different stories, two different guys, work their way up similar paths at Friday Harbor Suites

​I am Cory Stewart, General Manager of Friday Harbor Suites. Ten years ago, I got my first job in the hotel industry as a housekeeper at this same hotel. Little did I know then how far my journey would take me. After a few years in the housekeeping department, I was offered a front desk position, and after a few more years of hard work at the front desk, I was promoted to Front Desk Manager. I took my first management role seriously, enrolling in training programs to expand my knowledge and work ethics. My diligent work paid off when in 2015 I was promoted to General Manager of the hotel.

At that same time, Travis Hurley was promoted to the position of Friday Harbor Suites Vice President. Travis has been with me all the way, and I owe him a great debt for his faith and support. Travis started work at Friday Harbor Suites in 1996 as the maintenance guy, doing everything from painting to room damage repairs. When I came on board, Travis had worked his way up to maintenance manager. In 2015, he was promoted to vice president just as I became general manager.

One of the things that makes Friday Harbor Suites unique is the floorplan: Our zigzag hallways are legendary, and almost every room is a large family suite including a living area and kitchen. A favorite with groups, the Suites boast several conference rooms, from large to small. We are lucky to have a fun Mexican restaurant on site that helps make the hotel a favorite of locals as well as visitors. Our entire staff is incredible, a strong and loyal team working together as we strive to make every individual guest’s visit to the San Juan Islands unforgettable. Come see us!
