Sheraton Dallas Hotel Names Zeb Hartline as Executive Chef

USA , Dallas , Texas. January 07, 2019

The Sheraton Dallas Hotel, part of Marriott International, announces that it has appointed Zeb Hartline as Executive Chef.

Hartline joins the Sheraton Dallas with more than 15 years in the food and beverage industry, and proven experience in building teams, increasing profits, and improving quality for high-volume convention centers and resorts.

His addition to the team is instrumental as the downtown convention hotel currently undergoes a multimillion dollar renovation, including the addition of multiple food and beverage outlets and redesign of existing ones.

"Zeb's culinary innovation and expertise will be a significant asset as we revamp our restaurant and banquet offerings," said Ryan Littman, Director of Food and Beverage of Sheraton Dallas Hotel. "Zeb's education, experience and passion for cooking will undoubtedly elevate our culinary experience for our guests and locals alike."

Hartline hails from southwestern Michigan, where he firsthand learned the art of cooking growing up on a 67-acre produce farm. He earned his degree at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy in Orlando, and has earned more than two dozen awards on the professional barbecue circuit.

Most recently, Hartline served for four years as Executive Chef over multiple restaurants and Director of Restaurants at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas. Prior to that position, Hartline served in culinary leadership positions at The JW Marriott & Ritz-Carlton Hotel at Grande Lakes Orlando and Orlando World Center Marriott.

Sheraton Dallas Hotel is located at 400 North Olive Street in Dallas, Texas.

Sales & Marketing: Selling Experiences

There are innumerable strategies that Hotel Sales and Marketing Directors employ to find, engage and entice guests to their property, and those strategies are constantly evolving. A breakthrough technology, pioneering platform, or even a simple algorithm update can cause new trends to emerge and upend the best laid plans. Sales and marketing departments must remain agile so they can adapt to the ever changing digital landscape. As an example, the popularity of virtual reality is on the rise, as 360 interactive technologies become more mainstream. Chatbots and artificial intelligence are also poised to become the next big things, as they take guest personalization to a whole new level. But one sales and marketing trend that is currently resulting in major benefits for hotels is experiential marketing - the effort to deliver an experience to potential guests. Mainly this is accomplished through the creative use of video and images, and by utilizing what has become known as User Generated Content. By sharing actual personal content (videos and pictures) from satisfied guests who have experienced the delights of a property, prospective guests can more easily imagine themselves having the same experience. Similarly, Hotel Generated Content is equally important. Hotels are more than beds and effective video presentations can tell a compelling story - a story about what makes the hotel appealing and unique. A video walk-through of rooms is essential, as are video tours in different areas of a hotel. The goal is to highlight what makes the property exceptional, but also to show real people having real fun - an experience that prospective guests can have too. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
