WASHINGTON, DC. September 14, 2017 - Award winning boutique hotel, The Jefferson is proud to announce the appointment of hospitality veteran David Bueno as General Manager. In his new position, Bueno will be responsible for the daily operation and continued revenue growth for the historically-rich property in the heart of Washington, DC

Prior to this role, Bueno oversaw culinary teams at renowned DC restaurants such as Cafe Milano and Taberna del Alabardero, before becoming The Jefferson's Director of Food and Beverage and, then, its Hotel Manager. At The Jefferson, Bueno increased total food and beverage revenue by $3.3 million in two years, secured the esteemed Forbes Five Star rating for on-property Michelin starred restaurant Plume, and has maintained The Jefferson's high TripAdvisor ranking among DC hotels for more than two years.

“In his growth through the hospitality ranks, David has touched all aspects of the culinary and hotel realm,” said The Jefferson's Director, Philip Wood. “I'm confident that David's unique perspective coupled with his award-winning track record will evolve our storied legacy into the future.”

Hailing from Spain, Bueno began his career in mechanical engineering. After reevaluating his professional path, he decided to transform his fascination for food and wine into a career. He first studied hospitality in Seville before earning a Master's of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix and then followed by the General Manager Program at Cornell University.

“Driven by a love of food and wine, I came to the U.S. to pursue the American dream,” said Bueno. “Along this journey, I'm constantly humbled and inspired by the daily passion our staff exudes and the cherished memories our dignified guests share with us.”

Bueno, who began his hospitality career as a bus boy, now leads a staff of 180 employees at The Jefferson. When he's not at the luxury hotel, Bueno enjoys spending time with his wife and four-year-old daughter, horseback riding, winetasting in the Middleburg, VA countryside, and shopping for fresh ingredients at the local market for Sunday dinner.

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
