David Staker started his hospitality career in the fall of 2000 with the Econo Lodge in Boise. He started there as GM his senior year at Boise State University, while studying economics and accounting. He received his associate’s degree from Rick’s College one year prior.
At the Econo Lodge David found his love for the hospitality industry and interaction with a large variety of guests. After almost 2 years he left to try out the banking industry and government work. David decided after 2 years of other work that he wanted to return to hotel management.
In the fall of 2004, David became general manager of the Comfort Suites in Meridian, ID. After one year with Om Sai Inc, a hotel management company, he started to oversee a neighbor hotel. Six short months after overseeing the hotel, he became general manager of both the Comfort Suites and Holiday Inn Express. This lasted a year before becoming the area manager for Om Sai Inc., assisting in the operations of 5 hotels and the construction of another hotel.
In 2007, David opened the Holiday Inn Express as general manager while still maintaining the position of area manager. As of February, with excitement, David joined the ranks of InnTrusted LLC, when they purchased the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Nampa, ID. Besides the 10 years of experience in hotel management, he received his CHA in 2008.
