MANCHESTER, VT (October 8, 2018) – Newly renovated The Equinox, a Luxury Collection Golf Resort and Spa, announces the appointment of Martin Rosenthal as General Manager of the 147-room luxury resort. The luxury hotelier brings more than a decade of experience and sophisticated knowledge of the Vermont market to his new role as General Manager for the destination resort.

Rosenthal’s homecoming return to Vermont follows former experience at other resorts in the state, as Food & Beverage Director for Killington Ski Resort in the early 2000s and Mount Snow in his early career.

“It’s an incredible honor to be welcomed back to Vermont and into The Equinox family alongside this talented and dynamic team,” says Martin Rosenthal, General Manager. “Building on the hotel’s personalized five-star service and dynamic redesign, we look to further elevate the guest experience into the historical resort’s milestone 250th anniversary year and beyond.”

Previously, Rosenthal was the General Manager at luxury properties around the U.S., including HEI Hotels & Resorts such as Hilton St. Charles & Santa Cruz, Astor Crowne Plaza and Costa Mesa Marriott, as well as The Longmont Plaza Hotel & Convention Center and Millennium Harvest House in Colorado. In each of these roles, Rosenthal’s leadership was pivotal for his teams’ and properties successes and growth.

Rosenthal prides himself on his involvement into any community he joins, holding previous titles and board positions with various associations during his tenure in Colorado. He looks forward to integrating into the Manchester community through The Equinox Golf Resort & Spa. With a foundational understanding of the Vermont lifestyle, Rosenthal will lead the resort team to ensure the delivery of an unforgettable hospitality experience that local and international guests seek.

The Equinox Golf Resort & Spa continues its heritage of distinguished and elevated guest-centric service as part of The Luxury Collection brand, which boasts five food and beverage outlets, a destination spa, more than 18,500 square feet of meeting and event space, and a robust portfolio of unique guest amenities and activities, including partnerships with Orvis, Land Rover and the Green Mountain Falconry School. With the 2018 renovation completion, The Equinox Golf Resort and Spa strives to conserve and enhance as much of the historic property as possible and continues to offer guests the best of New England hospitality.
