FORT MYERS, FL--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - For Dwayne Bowes, the newly appointed Director of Sales at the Residence Inn Fort Myers Sanibel, one of the newest hotels near Sanibel Island, the sun isn't the only thing this Brooklyn, NY native loves about his Florida home.

"Fort Myers is a beautiful area with great businesses, beaches and a focus on eco-tourism," he says. "I am up to the challenge to bring new business to our property, show community support and continue to provide legendary customer service to all guests."

Bowes' superb service skills were honed over 9 years in the hospitality field, starting as a front desk associate in Melbourne, FL and moving on to be a front desk manager just a year later. He quickly worked his way up to general manager, and for the last 2 years served as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for a hotel management company before recently joining the team at the Residence Inn Fort Myers Sanibel.

In addition to their attentive staff, this extended stay Fort Myers hotel offers guests the comforts and convenience of home, with relaxing accommodations in one- or two-bedroom suites. Full kitchens, with refrigerators, microwaves and dishwashers, plus complimentary grocery shopping service, mean travelers can prepare healthy and affordable meals while away from home. Spacious living areas include a sleeper sofa, a flat panel TV and high-speed Internet access. And because they are among the few Fort Myers pet-friendly hotels, fluffy friends can come along, too. A visitors' stay shouldn't be all work, though; there's plenty of fun and activities to make their visit more enjoyable, including the Sport Court® with basketball and tennis, a pool and whirlpool, evening social hour and BBQ grill/picnic area.
