Lido House Appoints General Manager

Seasoned Hospitality Expert to Launch Newport Beach's Newest Luxury Hotel

NEWPORT BEACH, CA. November 14, 2017 – Opening early 2018, Lido House is excited to announce the appointment of Adam Beer as General Manager. At this forthcoming Newport Beach destination, Beer is luring a new breed of travelers who prize social vibe over traditional ratings.

Debuting as an Autograph Collection hotel and legacy project by local developer Robert D. Olson, Beer will oversee every aspect of Lido House’s 130 guest rooms, including suites and high-designed private cottages, as well as the signature restaurant Mayor’s Table and rooftop perch Topside.

Beer’s GM approach has been honed from his diverse background: He spent seven years at The Westin St. Francis Hotel perfecting day-to-day operations at this San Francisco landmark. Meanwhile, as Director of Operations at W Hollywood, he never shied away from challenging the status quo, serving guests “Whatever/Whenever®”.

Poised to be Newport Beach’s favorite guesthouse for locals and out of town visitors, Beer and his opening team will be essential in the introduction of Lido House, creating an experience that is a stylish celebration of Southern California’s coastal lifestyle and delivering the ultimate, authentic beach house retreat.

The East Coast native has embraced Newport Beach’s endless summer ethos, infusing the Cape Cod sensibilities he grew up on into Lido’s nautical vibe. His community spiritedness is already at work, serving on the board of directors for Visit Newport Beach.

Having received a B.S. from Cornell University’s acclaimed Hotel School, and an M.B.A from University of Michigan, Beer most recently spent three years overseeing the sprawling 1,053-room Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina as Hotel Manager, where he was a leader of the Green Council and recipient of Host Hotels’ 2014 Environmental Stewardship Award.

Eco-Friendly Practices: The Greening of Your Bottom Line

There are strong moral and ethical reasons why a hotel should incorporate eco-friendly practices into their business but it is also becoming abundantly clear that “going green” can dramatically improve a hotel's bottom line. When energy-saving measures are introduced - fluorescent bulbs, ceiling fans, linen cards, lights out cards, motion sensors for all public spaces, and energy management systems - energy bills are substantially reduced. When water-saving equipment is introduced - low-flow showerheads, low-flow toilets, waterless urinals, and serving water only on request in restaurants - water bills are also considerably reduced. Waste hauling is another major expense which can be lowered through recycling efforts and by avoiding wastefully-packaged products. Vendors can be asked to deliver products in minimal wrapping, and to deliver products one day, and pick up the packaging materials the next day - generating substantial savings. In addition, renewable sources of energy (solar, geothermal, wind, etc.) have substantially improved the economics of using alternative energies at the property level. There are other compelling reasons to initiate sustainability practices in their operation. Being green means guests and staff are healthier, which can lead to an increase in staff retention, as well as increased business from health conscious guests. Also, sooner or later, all properties will be sold, and green hotels will command a higher price due to its energy efficiencies. Finally, some hotels qualify for tax credits, subsidies and rebates from local, regional and federal governments for the eco-friendly investments they've made in their hotels. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document how some hotels are integrating sustainable practices into their operations and how their hotels are benefiting from them.
