(SAN FRANCISCO, CA; March 16, 2015) – The Axiom Hotel (28 Cyril Magnin St.), opening in fall 2015, is pleased to appoint Jarnetta Manna as Director of Operations. Manna brings over a decade of experience in hospitality to her new role at the Axiom Hotel, which is owned by Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. and managed by Kokua Hospitality, LLC.

Manna’s career began at the Kingsmill Resort and Spa in Williamsburg, Virginia where she honed her hospitality expertise working various management positions on property. She later went on to become front office manager at the Embassy Suites Williamsburg and later became front office supervisor at the Loews Hotel in Annapolis, Maryland. Manna spent time at Maryland’s Inn at Perry Cabin before joining Kokua Hospitality to oversee the conversion of the Tremont Plaza Hotel into the Embassy Suites Baltimore Inner Harbor in 2013. A year later, she made the cross-country move to San Francisco to oversee the Powell Hotel’s transition to the new Axiom Hotel.

“Axiom is going to give guests a wonderful dose of creativity, comfort and warm hospitality with a twist of the latest technology,” says Manna. “The idea is to give genuine care to each guest as if we were inviting them into our home.”

With many years of management experience under her belt, Manna is a teacher and mentor at heart. She believes that employees are just as important as guests. Manna has received many accolades for her outstanding hospitality, including nominations for Employee of the Year at the Loews Hotel Annapolis in 2010 and the Maryland Hotel and Lodging Association’s Guest Service Agent of the Year in the same year.
