Cyrus Di Tommaso Named General Manager
of the Doubletree Hotel-Tarrytown, NY

.

BOSTON, Mass., February 23, 2005 — Pyramid Advisors LLC (Pyramid), a Boston-based hotel development, management and ownership firm, today announced that Cyrus Di Tommaso has been named general manager of the former Hilton Hotel in Tarrytown, N.Y.  Pyramid recently signed a contract to operate the 250-room property, which reopened February 17 under new ownership as the Doubletree Hotel-Tarrytown. 

Di Tommaso joins Pyramid with more than a decade of management experience, most recently as general manager of the 448-room Sheraton Stamford hotel in Connecticut.  He will oversee the newly reflagged property during the planned $10 million renovation, scheduled to begin this summer.  The refurbishment will include a total makeover of all guest rooms, function space, and public spaces, including the hotel’s restaurant and lounge. 

“With more than 10 years of diverse hospitality management experience, Cyrus (Cy) Di Tommaso is uniquely qualified to serve as general manager of the new Doubletree Tarrytown,” said Jim Dina, Pyramid’s chief operating officer.  “We are looking forward to his leadership at the hotel and in the community.” 

“We also are excited about introducing Doubletree, a member of the Hilton family of hotels, to the Tarrytown community,” he said.  “The Doubletree brand is known for its warm hospitality and focus on guest service, and we believe the combination of our new leadership, the $10 million renovation and the Doubletree brand will prove to be a winning combination for the hotel, local businesses and the community.”

Located at 455 South Broadway, the Doubletree Tarrytown is situated in the scenic upper Hudson Valley, directly off I-287 at the Tarrytown exit 9, the last exit from New York going over the Tappan Zee Bridge to New Jersey.  The property is 30 minutes from downtown NYC and near such historic local tourist attractions as the Rockefeller Estate-Kykuit, Philipsburg Manor, and the Lyndhurst Castle, as well as a number of area colleges, including Iona, Mercy and Pace University.  The hotel also is proximate to several major corporate employers, including Kraft, Bayer, Dannon, IBM and Hitachi.

Currently, the hotel features a business center, a three-meal casual restaurant and separate sports bar, lounge meeting space, indoor and outdoor pools, fitness center, whirlpool/sauna, two tennis courts and more than 16,000 square feet of flexible meeting/function space, including a 4,000-square-foot Grande Ballroom, the 3,250-square-foot Hendrick Hudson Complex. 

Pyramid Advisors LLC, founded in 1999, is a full-service hotel company that owns, manages and asset manages hotels and manages hotel construction/renovation projects.
