Czech Republic, Prague. April 01, 2020

Four Seasons Hotel Prague announces the appointment of Martin Dell as the new General Manager. This new role follows his most recent position as Resort Manager at Four Seasons Resort Maui, Hawaii.

Born and raised in the Czech Republic, Martin brings a wealth of global hospitality experience to his new role as General Manager in Prague. He began his career at the iconic Grandhotel Pupp in Karlovy Vary, before gaining a wide range of skills and hotel experiences with postings in Sydney, Hong Kong, and Doha. Martin's relationship with Four Seasons started in 2010 at Regent Singapore (formerly a Four Seasons hotel).

Martin holds a bachelor's degree in Business and Hotel Management from the William Blue Hospitality School in Sydney, Australia. He also gained a sommelier's certification from Wine Academy, Valtice, Czech Republic. Known for his strong leadership skills and management experience, Martin has also been involved in the creation of prestigious food and beverage outlets. His work on the Manhattan Bar at Regent Singapore resulted in numerous accolades; it came in third place in The World's 50 Best Bars and took the top spot in Asia.

"It's all about enjoying what we do. A healthy working culture, passion and dedication together make up the secret recipe for success. I do everything possible to support all our employees in their development, helping them to exceed their goals. Together, we are going to create magical moments for our guests and show them Prague at its very best." Martin is esteemed for his positive impact on employees and guests, his contagious energy, creative mindset and hands-on approach in day-to-day operations.

Martin is also happy to be coming home. "After almost two decades away, I'm thrilled to be back in the Czech Republic. I can't wait to share my knowledge and experiences with my new colleagues and with the next generation of hoteliers. Being a hotelier is a way of life, so becoming the first Czech General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Prague really is a dream come true for me."

In his free time, Martin is keen to rediscover Prague's restaurant and bar scene, support his favorite hockey team, and explore the Czech Republic's lakes and mountains with his wife Jana and his two children, daughter Stella and son Luca.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
