September 12, 2018 (Boston) – YOTEL, the affordable luxury hotel brand inspired by first-class air travel, has appointed Trish Berry as general manager of YOTEL Boston, the 326-cabin hotel that opened in the Seaport in June 2017. Felicia Rahm also joins the Boston leadership team as director of sales and marketing.
“YOTEL’s forward-thinking and innovative concept has been a powerful draw and natural fit for the evolving Seaport district,” said Berry. “Joining the hotel as it begins its second year, we look forward to building greater value into the guest experience, strengthening community and client ties as well as implementing new, creative programming.”
Berry brings over 30 years of luxury hospitality experience to YOTEL. She has strong ties to Boston, where she was most recently general manager at Ames Boston, where she oversaw the hotel’s transition to become a Hilton Curio property as well as the opening of Cultivar, the on-site restaurant. Prior to that, Berry served as general manager at the Battery Wharf Hotel, where she managed its successful transition from a branded Fairmont property to a fully independent hotel. She also has significant experience in the Mid-Atlantic, where she managed Baltimore’s The Ritz-Carlton Residences Inner Harbor, a 191-unit luxury condominium residence community with a spa, marina and restaurants, and served as general manager of Hotel Monaco for Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group.
Also joining the team as the Director of Sales and Marketing, is Felicia Rahm, a nine-year industry veteran, who comes to YOTEL after managing the sales departments at Boston’s Copley Square Hotel, in addition to the Crown Plaza Downtown and The Heathman Hotel, both located in Portland, Oregon. Rahm is the recipient of numerous professional honors, including the Rising Star Award from the Oregon chapter of Meeting Professionals International.
