by the Massachusetts Lodging Association
BOSTON, Mass. – February 1, 2006 – Serge Denis, Managing Director of the Langham Hotel Boston, was named General Manager of the Year in the category of large properties of more than 300 rooms by the Massachusetts Lodging Association last night at the 2005 Stars of the Industry Gala. The nomination is a first for the 40-year hospitality veteran. 

This prestigious award “honors a general manager who has demonstrated professionalism in operating a lodging property and taken a leadership role in the industry by actively participating in association, community, or industry programs.”

Serge Denis was humbled and surprised. He did not learn of his nomination until 5:30 p.m. the day of the Gala.

The win comes as no surprise to Mr. Denis’ team, who held clandestine meetings to write the nomination together. “Serge Denis inspires everyone with whom he works,” according to Stephanie Mehail, Hotel Manager. “I know I speak for everyone at the Langham Hotel Boston when I say Serge Denis is what makes our property feel special and important. Every employee is eager to please him. To the employees, he is an inspiration. To our guests, he is the soul of the hotel.”
Mr. Denis, who celebrated one dozen years at the property in 2005, oversees the 325 room luxury hotel, which is a member of Leading Hotels of the World and has two award-winning restaurants.
