TORONTO — The Hazelton
Hotel, a luxury boutique hotel in Yorkville, recently announced the appointment
of Hani Roustom as general manager.
The graduate of the Cornell
School of Hotel Administration, Roustom comes to the Leading Hotels of the
World member property from the Shangri-La Hotel Toronto, where he held the post of
executive assistant manager food and beverage since 2013.
Prior to that, Roustom worked with Four
Seasons Hotels and Resorts, joining in 2006 at the Washington DC property as director
of restaurants and bars before landing in Toronto in 2008.
“The Hazelton Hotel is a unique property
located in the heart of Yorkville. I am thrilled to join the team and to work
with Canadian culinary icon, chef Mark McEwan in creating memorable experiences
for our guests and elevating what our world-class city has to offer,” said
Roustom's international and culinary
exposure, experience launching and managing quality operations, and knowledge
of cultures and five languages, makes him an asset to the Hazelton Hotel.
Regarding hospitality and his passion for service, Roustom refers to a quote by
E.M. Statler engraved in the lobby of his hotel school at Cornell: “Life is
service – the one who progresses is the one who gives his fellow men a little
more – a little better service.”
