NEW YORK—Industry veteran Andrew Labetti has been named general manager of the Omni Berkshire Place here.
He will manage all operational aspects at the property, including sales, marketing, food and beverage and future growth efforts.
Labetti served as the GM at The Benjamin Hotel in Manhattan for five years. While there, he oversaw a multimillion-dollar renovation that included the opening of the National Bar and Dining Room.
Prior to that, Labetti was general manager at the Hotel Wales in Manhattan for three years, and executive housekeeper at the Four Seasons Hotel New York. He began his career at the Omni Berkshire Place in 1995 where he was the executive housekeeper.
“We are proud to welcome Andrew back to the Omni Berkshire Place,” said Peter Strebel, SVP/operations for Omni Hotels & Resorts. “Andrew is well respected among our staff and hired many of our housekeeping associates who are still with us today. We look forward to his successful return to the property.”
