LOS ANGELES, Calif. (JULY 30, 2018) Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) announced that Gino Caliendo has been appointed General Manager of the 580-room hotel.

In this position, Caliendo is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the hotel’s management.

He is also involved with budgets and forecasting, guest satisfaction, and owner/community relations.

“I am thrilled to inherit such an incredible property and team. Managing an airport hotel that sells out frequently and where the average stay is one night means that all of our associates, departments and management have to operate seamlessly, and with utmost timeliness and efficiency,” says Caliendo. “I am so impressed by the ‘unquestionably unairport’ approach, from the mid-century modern design, outstanding culinary offerings, and the genuine connections the team makes every day that exceeds guest expectations. Nurturing this culture by caring for people so they can be their best is an approach we all embrace .”

Caliendo has demonstrated his passion for people and the hospitality industry throughout his career, especially in his track record within the Hyatt Hotels family. In three years, Caliendo transformed a struggling Hyatt Regency Jacksonville hotel into a flourishing establishment with 20 percent sales growth and record sales and margins. He then went on to make distinct improvements at three other Hyatt Regency hotels in Coral Gables and Miami, Florida, and Hill Country, in San Antonio, Texas.

In his more than 20-year career with Hyatt Regency establishments, Caliendo has been nominated as Hyatt GM of the Year twice (2004 and 2008) and received the Global Hyatt Thrive Aware for “doing it all” (2011). Caliendo describes himself as a “results-focused and strategic leader with a passion for excellence” in building and leading successful hospitality businesses.
