"We're pleased with this opportunity to promote an imaginative and competent member of our staff to a position of greater authority and responsibility", said Area General Manager Craig Hulford of the New Orleans Hotel Collection. "Michael is a dedicated, hands-on manager, and the success of the new Hotel Mazarin - Diamond of the French Quarter as the premier luxury boutique hotel in the French Quarter will be well served by Michael's daily involvement".

About Hotel Mazarin
Hotel Mazarin takes its name from the famous European Diplomat and Catholic Pontiff, Cardinal Jules Mazarin. Cardinal Mazarin was a 17th Century Italian born statesman, gambler, aide- de -camp to French Royalty, a Machiavellian scholar and chief financial minister to Queen Anne, longtime Regent of France on behalf of Louis the XIV. A renaissance man, a great character and collector of wealth, Mazarin designed the Mazarin Diamond, collected jewels, was an avid reader, and a man of acclaimed wit. His reputation, once sullied, became golden again. His spirit lives on in the new Hotel Mazarin in New Orleans historic French Quarter. The completely renovated hotel evokes the "art de vivre" of the city, delivering a luxury boutique hotel stay to both leisure guests and business travelers in a comfortable and stylish retreat in the heart of the French Quarter.
