PHILADELPHIA, Pa., July 26, 2022—TPG/Marshall Hotels & Resorts, a leading hotel management and services company that operates properties nationwide, today announced Douglas Osborne has been named general manager of the 20-room 1715 on Rittenhouse, a Boutique Hotel, located in the heart of Philadelphia’s affluent Rittenhouse Square neighborhood.
“A twenty-plus year hospitality operations veteran with nearly a decade of that experience in Philadelphia, Douglas is the ideal leader to take the hotel to the next level while ensuring improved guest satisfaction and strong financial performance,” said Mike Marshall, president and CEO, TPG/Marshall Hotels & Resorts. “With the completion of its multi-million dollar renovation, 1715 on Rittenhouse, a Boutique Hotel, has achieved ‘like-new’ status that makes it the ideal destination for upscale visitors seeking a truly unique Philadelphia experience. While 1715 on Rittenhouse is very much a hotel, with each room boasting its own theme, the guest experience is more akin to staying in a luxury Philly townhouse with each room uniquely decorated to give guests a distinctive experience for their stay.”
Most recently, Osborne was clubhouse manager of the Germantown Cricket Club where he built relationships with affluential guests that had major ties within Philadelphia’s marketplace. Douglas played a big part in the increased membership of family members from 500 to more than 800 during his timeframe at the club. His dedication to the members clearly had a positive impact and created a new era of loyalty. Prior to that, he was assistant general manager of Le Meridien Philadelphia. Osborne has worked for such well-respected hospitality entities as HEI Hotels & Resorts and the Hotel at Auburn University. He received his hospitality degree from D.P.T. Business School in Philadelphia.
“This hotel is truly a hidden gem,” Osborne noted. “The unique room designs and beautiful artistry upon arrival creates a peaceful atmosphere that resonates with guests.”
1715 on Rittenhouse, a Boutique Hotel, completed a multi-million dollar renovation in April 2022. The hotel added breakfast nooks and a kitchen to provide added amenities for guests, as well as more meeting rooms and private event spaces to host both corporate and private, social events. Guests also now can enjoy libations at Franklin Mortgage & Investment Company, one of the most renowned speakeasies in Philadelphia.
