Trump International Hotel & Tower® Chicago is pleased to announce the appointment of Gabriel Constantin to general manager of the Forbes five-star property following a successful, five-year tenure with Trump Hotels.
Constantin joins an award-winning team that prides itself on superior customer service and guest experiences. Prior to joining Trump Hotel Chicago, he served as the manager for Trump Hotels’ Old Post Office in Washington, D.C., whose highly acclaimed restoration and luxury status has earned international acclaim. The property opened in September 2016 and quickly established a reputation for its outstanding location, iconic landmark status, and world-class service.
In Chicago, Constantin leads the management team for the group’s renowned property – which includes 339 beautifully appointed guest rooms and a residential tower comprised of 489 luxury units. The hotel has attained coveted Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond rankings several years running.
Constantin was immersed in the hospitality arena at a young age, working with his family’s business in Bucharest, Romania. After earning his degree in finance and management from the Ecological University of Bucharest, he avidly pursued a career in the hospitality industry. He quickly moved through food and beverage positions in the U.K. and Ireland before moving to the United States in 2002, where he served in leadership roles at the Westin (Greenville, SC), and InterContinental Hotels Group (Baltimore, MD) before being named director of operations for The Ritz-Carlton in the greater Philadelphia area.
In early 2003, he was recruited to join Trump Hotels to oversee the food and beverage operation for the group’s Doral property, which underwent a $250 million transformation into a luxury resort with 700 rooms, 100,000 square feet of event space and a $30 million food and beverage budget.
Truly embracing the Trump Hotels "Never Settle" motto in all that he does, Constantin’s guiding philosophy emphasizes refined, personalized service and an attention to detail carried through all elements of the award-winning Chicago hotel.
