NEW ORLEANS, LA (January 25, 2013) - The Saint Hotel, the one-of-a-kind luxury boutique property, located in the famous New Orleans French Quarter, has announced Darryl Hill as the new General Manager.

While Hill delights in the personalized nature of boutique hotels, he has many years of experience with big-brand hoteliers under his belt as well. Prior to joining The Saint Hotel, Hill grew accustomed to New Orleans, working for the Omni Royal Crescent and the Omni Royal Orleans for five years. Hill most recently served as General Manager at La Quinta Inn & Suites, located in the French Quarter, for three years.

As General Manager, Hill ensured the standards for guest service were met while making sure the lodging establishments were run efficiently and profitably. He won "General Manager of the Year" in 2010, leading the team in managing revenue generation, customer satisfaction and budget. During Hill's time of achievement, the hotel was awarded the 2010 "La Quinta Inn of the Year" for brand excellence in service, cleanliness and sales.

"The Saint Hotel is a wonderful New Orleans tradition that is respected throughout the nation, and I am tasked with enhancing that tradition," said General Manager, Darryl Hill. "My vision is to ensure every guest that walks through our doors is met with uncompromising service, providing the most luxurious and unforgettable New Orleans experience. I am delighted at the opportunity to contribute to the continuing success of The Saint Hotel. "

Hill possesses an incredible leadership style with a hands-on coaching method. He emphasizes consistency, patience and teamwork, which is a true match for The Saint Hotel's tradition of sustaining a team with impeccable attention to detail and flawless execution.
