Kristin Battaglia, General Manager
“Since each Kinney is designed to be highly localized, my familiarity with the Central Coast and passion for community involvement made this opportunity a perfect fit for me. I’m excited to introduce the unique Kinney brand and the social, interactive experience it offers to San Luis Obispo and its visitors.”- Kristin Battaglia
Battaglia brings a wealth of hospitality experience to her new role, which includes overseeing all operational aspects of the 100-room property and ensuring overall guest satisfaction. Prior to joining The Kinney SLO team, Battaglia served as the General Manager of The Wayfarer—another Pacifica Hotels property—in Santa Barbara— the same city in which she attended Santa Barbara City for hospitality management and culinary arts. While earning her degree, Battaglia worked for Montecito’s San Ysidro Ranch and Hilton Hotels. She went on to co-own and serve as the Vice President of Operations of her family vacation rental business in Idyllwild, Calif., before her love for the outdoors took her to the historic Camp Richardson Resort in South Lake Tahoe. In 2015, she jumped at the opportunity to relocate back to the Central Coast and begin her career with Pacifica Hotels before spearheading the opening of the new brand in San Luis Obispo.
Adam Measurall, Executive Chef & B
“Curating the menu for Leroy’s was a blast. The culinary and beverage offerings do not only infuse the local favorites and flavors, but are also crafted to match the social and playful atmosphere that is uniquely The Kinney SLO. I’m looking forward to Leroy’s becoming a new hub that both guests and locals can turn to for great dining and good fun.” - Adam Measurall
The Kinney SLO is home to Leroy’s—a new restaurant and bar featuring an innovative menu curated by Executive Chef & B Adam Measurall. The Ventura native had a passion for cooking from a young age. While attending culinary school at Santa Barbara City College, Measurall honed his skills at various restaurants in the area, including Emilio’s Ristorante & Bar and Seagrass Restaurant. After graduating, he began his career as a grill cook at Arlington Tavern, a farm to table restaurant, and worked his way up to Executive Chef. He then dedicated many years helming the kitchen at Far Western Tavern, a high-volume steakhouse in Orcutt, Calif., prior to accepting an opportunity to advance his culinary career as the Executive Chef & B of Leroy’s at The Kinney SLO.
