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.
