NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (November 10, 2017) – Opening early 2018, Lido House is excited to announce the appointment of Adam Beer as General Manager. At this forthcoming Newport Beach destination, Beer is luring a new breed of travelers who prize social vibe over traditional ratings.
Debuting as an Autograph Collection hotel and legacy project by local developer Robert D. Olson, Beer will oversee every aspect of Lido House’s 130 guest rooms, including suites and high-designed private cottages, as well as the signature restaurant Mayor’s Table and rooftop perch Topside.
Beer’s GM approach has been honed from his diverse background: He spent seven years at The Westin St. Francis Hotel perfecting day-to-day operations at this San Francisco landmark. Meanwhile, as Director of Operations at W Hollywood, he never shied away from challenging the status quo, serving guests “Whatever/Whenever®”.
Poised to be Newport Beach’s favorite guesthouse for locals and out of town visitors, Beer and his opening team will be essential in the introduction of Lido House, creating an experience that is a stylish celebration of Southern California’s coastal lifestyle and delivering the ultimate, authentic beach house retreat.
The East Coast native has embraced Newport Beach’s endless summer ethos, infusing the Cape Cod sensibilities he grew up on into Lido’s nautical vibe. His community spiritedness is already at work, serving on the board of directors for Visit Newport Beach.
Having received a B.S. from Cornell University’s acclaimed Hotel School, and an M.B.A from University of Michigan, Beer most recently spent three years overseeing the sprawling 1,053-room Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina as Hotel Manager, where he was a leader of the Green Council and recipient of Host Hotels’ 2014 Environmental Stewardship Award.
