Wyndham International recently appointed Carlos Molinet to general manager of the 200-suite Wyndham Bel Age, located on the world-famous Sunset Strip resting against the hills of West Hollywood.
Bringing more than 20 years of hospitality experience to the post, this marks Molinet`s return to Wyndham International, having served as general manager of the Wyndham Old San Juan Hotel & Casino in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, in 1999 and 2000. Most recently, Molinet served as general manager of the Westin Providence Hotel in Providence, R.I.
Molinet has also served two-year stints each as general manager of the former Wyndham Palmas Del Mar Resort & Villas in Humacao, Puerto Rico, and the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Mt. Olive, N.J. He began his career with Wyndham in 1995 as assistant food and beverage director for the Wyndham Rose Hall Resort & Country Club in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
“We are extremely pleased to have Carlos back at Wyndham,” said Jeff Wagoner, Wyndham`s senior vice president of hotel operations. “His experience in operating hotels and restaurants, and existing knowledge of the Wyndham brand is key to operating one of our most prestigious assets. We anticipate nothing but the best from him and from Wyndham Bel Age in the coming years.”
The Wyndham Bel Age is known for its breathtaking views of the Los Angeles skyline. Its location is key, positioning guests just steps away from entertainment and fashion venues with easy access to downtown Los Angeles, Century City, Beverly Hills and Universal City.
All 200 suites are newly remodeled with a balcony, wet bar, dual-line telephones, voice mail, dataports, high-speed Internet access and Sony PlayStation(R). A full-time concierge, rooftop pool and whirlpool, exercise room, salon, art gallery, gift shop and one-site florist combine to make Wyndham Bel Age among the best in guest service and amenities. Meeting space consists of 23,000 square feet including two grand ballrooms, eight conference rooms, an open-air garden and poolside rooftop terrace.
Dining options at Wyndham Bel Age are superb. The critically acclaimed Diaghilev features award-winning Franco-Russian cuisine and uncompromising service in a sophisticated and romantic setting, and La Brasserie offers Tuscan-Californian fare with live jazz on weekends.
