Throughout his career, Comstock has touched just about every department of a hotel, from sales and marketing, to reservations, to catering and conference services, to food and beverage. He has directed a number of major hotel renovations throughout his career, has participated in several hotel brand conversions and even contributed to the development of computerized forecasting and account management software. Under his leadership, the Doubletree Hotel Sonoma Wine Country received the Hilton Spirit award as one of the top hotels in the Doubletree system for financial results and customer satisfaction.
Comstock joins the Outrigger Reef from his most recent position as general manager of the Pacific Beach Hotel. Prior to joining Outrigger, Comstock held the general manager position for the prestigious Outrigger Canoe Club, one of Oahu's best-known private clubs, where he was involved in every aspect of operations and member relations.
The Outrigger Reef on the Beach located right on the famous Waikiki Beach is in the midst of a complete transformation. The all new Ocean Tower is now open offering 200 spacious and sophisticated rooms and suites. When the renovation is completed, guests will arrive to an inspired reception celebrating the heritage of Polynesian voyaging in hand-painted murals and meandering water features.
