News for the Hospitality Executive
SANTA MONICA, CALIF. – Ben Kulak has been named the new General Manager of the Embassy Suites Lompoc-Central Coast, the only all-suite hotel in the region. Already a prime location for vacationers, business travelers and military personnel, Kulak seeks to raise the property’s profile, exceeding the already-high expectations of guests.
Windsor Management Services, the hotel management company of Santa Monica-based Windsor Capital Group, Inc, operates the hotel. The firm manages nearly 30 upscale hotels throughout the U.S.
“The community response in welcoming me and my family to the region has meant a lot to us,” said Kulak. “I am excited to be here and raise my children with the values of a small town with a big heart.”
Kulak has extensive experience with premier hotel brands, including Marriott, Sheraton and Embassy Suites. He knows all facets of hotel management, having started in the industry working at the front desk. He is married with three children and is making community involvement a key part of his management role at the hotel.
“We are fortunate to have the local chapter of Rotary International meet here every Wednesday,” he noted. “I have been invited to join the club and will be an active member for as long as they will have me. The Air Force Association is another club that is near and dear to this community, with more than 500 members in the local chapter. Their sole mission is to gather local resources to support the brave men and women of the Air Force and their families. These clubs, along with many others in Lompoc, have inspired not only me but also our entire hotel family to give back to the community.”
The Embassy Suites Lompoc-Central Coast offers 155 two-room suites, each equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, wet bar and coffee maker. Each suite features a private bedroom and separate sitting area with a well-lit desk. The hotel features wireless high-speed Internet access, Embassy Suites’ signature cooked-to-order breakfasts and evening manager’s reception with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The hotel also offers 1,400 square feet of flexible meeting space to accommodate large and small meetings onsite.
The Embassy Suites Lompoc-Central Coast is conveniently located for military personnel, Vandenberg Air Force Base visitors, contractors, business travelers and leisure travelers.
