Metido en la industria de la hotelería y la hospitalidad desde su niñez en Beirut, Ghassan Sader se ha convertido en una especie de gurú en el negocio de transformar hoteles que no producían ganancias en operaciones rentables. Analiza aprovechar el boom turístico y venir a la Argentina.
Ghassan J. Sader was brought in to revitalize the 296-room Historic Mayfair Hotel Los Angeles in October 2004—a former Best Western that had deteriorated over nearly a decade of mismanagement. After a $40 million renovation, the hotel—built in 1927—is slowly beginning to mirror the days when movie stars like Mary Pickford and the Barrymores were regulars.
Quality, Consistency, Service – Running a buffet that’s both popular and profitable is almost a science for Ghassan J. Sader, president of Hospitality Asset Services, LLC, who specializes in revitalizing flagging hotels and restaurants. Since taking over management in late 2004 of the Mayfair Hotel, a Los Angeles landmark built in the 1920s, the luncheon buffet in the 225-seat Orchid Gardens Restaurant has gone from “the same ten to fifteen guests” to an average of 150 customers a day.
