USA, Washington, D.C. August 15, 2022

Hilton has named Senih Geray general manager of the new 263-room Waldorf Astoria Washington DC. Elegantly restored to its historic grandeur, Washington's iconic Old Post Office has been reimagined as Waldorf Astoria Washington DC, and under Geray's leadership, brings unforgettable experiences to guests visiting the Pennsylvania Avenue hotel. Previously, Geray served as general manager of The St. Regis New York and Residences.

With more than 30 years of hospitality experience, Geray started his career as a guest service agent at Sheraton Grande Torrey Pines before transitioning to financial controller at The St. Regis New York. Over the past two decades, he has held the position of general manager at Sheraton Voyager Antalya Hotel, Resort & Spa in Turkey, The St. Regis Aspen Resort and Residence and The St. Regis Atlanta and Residences before returning to New York City.

Geray holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the United States International University in London and continued his education with studies in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

Located steps away from the White House, Waldorf Astoria Washington DC is inspired by the legacy of the Old Post Office and guided by the brand's own iconic history. The property offers some of the largest rooms in the city, with wainscoting and windows of the building's original décor; bespoke culinary experiences, including the brand-renowned Peacock Alley and its creative cocktails in the lobby and Michelin-starred Sushi Nakazawa serving the omakase of Chef Daisuke Nakazawa; a 10,000 square foot Waldorf Astoria Spa with six rejuvenating treatment rooms and couples suites; and 38,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including the largest luxury hotel ballroom in the region.

Hotel Revenue Management: Every Square Foot Matters


Traditionally, hotels have employed a room-centric revenue model. The primary focus was on pricing strategies that could generate the most revenue from the sale of rooms. However, the pandemic has forced hoteliers to look beyond room revenue exclusively, and to maximize all available revenue streams. How is this accomplished? By re-imagining the use and function of every square foot of a hotel property, and how revenue is generated from it. For example, some hotels are rethinking their spaces for different uses - offering rooms for private day meetings, or offering suites for private dinners. Other hotels with meeting spaces are moving beyond daytime conferences and events, and figuring out how to book those spaces in the evenings, on holidays and weekends, for such things as exhibitions, workshops, rehearsals and pop-ups. Still other hotels are leasing work spaces or parking spaces to businesses in their local market. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on how some leading hotels are re-inventing their revenue management strategies.
