USA, Chatham , Massachusetts. March 11, 2021

Chatham Bars Inn announces Don Brookshire as Director of Operations where he will oversee all Food & Beverage, Beach, Pool, Waterfront and Boating Operations at Cape Cod's most beloved and celebrated resort. First opened as a luxury hunting lodge for wealthy Bostonians in 1914, today it is a full-service year-round oceanfront property with individually decorated rooms and suites, endless recreational options, exceptional dining, exclusive spa and an eight-acre farm. Chatham Bars Inn's 217 quaint accommodations are located in over 30 separate cottage-style buildings spread throughout the Inn's 25-acre estate.

As a graduate of Florida's Valencia College with a degree in Hospitality Management, Brookshire began his career in hospitality as a Restaurant Guest Service Manager at Disney World's Animal Kingdom Lodge. In 2006, Don accepted a position at EPCOT to manage the International Food & Wine Festival, where he and his team secured the highest sales and lowest labor percentages in the 11 year history of the festival.

In 2010, Brookshire served as the Director of Food & Beverage at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. He was instrumental in obtaining the Forbes 4-Star designation within the training and service categories as this property was the only Hilton Brand awarded the 4-Star rating at the time. In the last 10 years, Don has made a vast impact in service and employee relations throughout his career as Director of Food & Beverage at properties such as the Waldorf Astoria, Park City, Utah and The Omni Nashville Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. Most recently he served as the Director of Operations at The Plaza, New York City where he grew the Leading Quality Assurance service scores tremendously.

Brookshire's management successes and business achievements have been recognized through a variety of awards and recognition including Nation's Best F&B Industry Leader on Social Media, Caterer of the Year, Manager of the Quarter, and more.

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
