May 02, 2012--In tandem with the completion of a $35 million refurbishment, the Hyatt Regency Greenwich has also redesigned its management, naming Shaheryar Adil as the new general manager of the hotel.
On April 16, Adil undertook the management of the 373 guest rooms, 35,000 square-foot meeting space, Winfield's Resataurant, Gazebo Bar and the Regency Club lounge -- all of which recently received new furnishings and embellishments to mark the Hyatt Regency's 25th anniversary.
"The changes are spectacular," Adil said in a statement. "The renovation is a dramatic shift that brings accessible sophistication and a residential feel to Hyatt Regency Greenwich. We want everyone to experience it."
Adil recently left a post as general manager of the Hyatt Bellevue in Philadelphia, which attracts a similar clientele. Adil's experience in overseeing the Bellevue property has prepared him well for his new post in Greenwich, said Anne Farb, director of sales and marketing at the Greenwich hotel.
"It deals with a more upscale customer base," Farb said of the Hyatt Bellevue. "It's a very affluent property as well. He (Adil) has a very calming personality and I think he'll fit in well with the Greenwich crowd."
A resident of Greenwich, Adil has previously held management positions at other Hyatt hotels in Chicago, Houston, Boston, Indianapolis and Washington, D.C. He studied hospitality in Switzerland and earned an MBA in management principles from Cornell University.
"We're really excited that he is here," Farb said. "I think there's a great foundation here and I think he will build on that, but also bring in new things, which is exciting as well."
