Hotel Valley Ho Announces New Pastry Chef

Scottsdale's Chic Downtown Resort Welcomes Deavynne Millward

USA, Scottsdale, Arizona. July 16, 2021

Hotel Valley Ho, the iconic desert hideaway centrally located in downtown Scottsdale, is pleased to announce the appointment of new talent to the culinary team with Pastry Chef Deavynne Millward.

"We're delighted to add to our incredible culinary team with Deavynne Millward as our new pastry chef," said Ronen Aviram, vice president, and general manager. "Her innovative nature, combined with her talent and passion for baking, make her the perfect fit for ZuZu and Hotel Valley Ho."

Raised in Tucson, Ariz., and New Jersey, Millward attended a vocational program in high school that piqued her interest in culinary. She studied at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Scottsdale, Ariz., where she perfected her baking skills. While there, she also completed an externship at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa and soon after earned her degree in patisserie and baking. She started her first pastry job at the Arizona Biltmore and later took the helm at Tonto Bar & Grill in Cave Creek, Ariz. as a pastry chef. She also made an appearance on Food Network's first season of the show, "Candy Land."

At Hotel Valley Ho, Millward will lead the pastry team and oversee desserts for the hotel's signature restaurant, ZuZu, as well as for banquets and weddings. Her first creation for the hotel is the latest edition of ZuZu's famous "Show Stopper" Shake - an elevated take on the classic milkshake featuring house-made desserts piled on top and a brand-new theme every month. July's featured flavor is Hazel Royal, a Nutella shake topped with a Nutella-stuffed donut, Ferrero Rocher chocolates, chocolate milk crumb, chocolate curls, and a piece of chocolate-dipped-and-fried angel food cake. Millward resides in Glendale with her fiancé Haofa, their cats Buttercup and Beezlebub, and cockatoo Casper.

Revenue Management: Monetizing All Offerings


Of all the departments within hotel operations, Revenue Management may have been the hardest hit, due to the pandemic. The logic goes - no revenue, no need for revenue managers - so many industry professionals were furloughed. If business rebounds in 2021, as expected, then hotel management will have to determine when prevailing occupancy levels justify bringing back their revenue management team. Also, the pandemic seems to have exposed some weaknesses in the traditional RevPAR models. There is a growing understanding that it is no longer sufficient to use a "revenue per available room" model; instead, hotels are adopting a TRevPAR model (total revenue per available room). This model recognizes that revenue streams from other departments are just as important as the revenue gained from rooms. As a result, hotels are looking at ways to monetize any and all hotel offerings - from dining outlets and spas to outdoor function spaces and local partnerships. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
