Desires Hotels Appoints David Lopez as General Manager
of Cassa NYC Hotel and Residences

New York, NY
Desires Hotels, the unique collection of independently created modern boutique hotels, has announced the appointment of David Lopez as the General Manager of the 42-story Cassa NYC Hotel and Residences  in New York City. In this role, Lopez will maximize production from all levels of hotel operations, implement revenue generation strategies, coordinate marketing and branding functions — all while ensuring compliance of Desires Hotels’ service standards.

David Lopez brings more than 16 years of experience in the hospitality industry with 12 of those years being served in the New York City marketplace. Beginning with his first appointment as General Manager of The Rogers Williams Hotel in New York City, Lopez comes to Cassa NYC from the San Juan Water and Beach Club in San Juan, Puerto Rico where he was the General Manager. David has experienced success in managing boutique hotels, which will prove a valuable asset as he sets his sights on the Spring 2010 opening date for the five-star luxury, 166-room Cassa NYC Hotel and Residences.

David joined Desires Hotels in January 2006 as General Manager of Hotel Mela in New York City and has since become a valuable member of the management team. “Cassa NYC is an important project for Desires Hotels as we continue to expand in different markets. We are excited to have David back in New York City spearheading this venture,” says Raul Leal, President of Desires Hotels.
