Nihat Yucel Appointed as General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria at San Stefano

Egypt, Alexandria. October 14, 2021

Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria at San Stefano, a Mediterranean oasis in the middle of the city, welcomes Nihat Yucel as General Manager, bringing 22 years of Four Seasons experience and a diverse career journey.

Nihat holds a master's degree in tourism from Istanbul University and a post-graduate degree from Florida International University. He started working with Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul in 1999 in the food and beverage department, sparking an interest in exploring different tastes for this savvy foodie who believes that every dish has a story.

Then in 2007, Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus was opening, and Nihat became the Food and Beverage Director leading the pre-opening team. In 2010, he took one of his biggest career challenges when he switched to Director of Rooms. After two years, he was promoted to Hotel Manager overseeing both departments.

Always interested in new experiences, Nihat took a position overseas at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles in 2014 in the capacity of Resort Manager. In 2016, he returned to Istanbul to be Hotel Manager at both Four Seasons on the Bosphorus and at Sultanahmet.

When asked what he has enjoyed most about his career at Four Seasons, he says, "I like the time to connect with people." In addition to his vast experience in hotel operations, Nihat's strength resides in human relations.

He is also a true football fan of the Galatasaray Football team in Turkey and he also played football professionally in the second division of the Turkish football league.

All who know Nihat know him as a wonderful man, a compassionate leader and one dedicated to both elevated guest service and genuine employee care and wellbeing.

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.
