Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has announced the appointment of Matthew Hurlburt as the new area director of operations for New York and Pennsylvania and the new general manager of Kimpton Muse Hotel in Manhattan. In his new role, Hurlburt will oversee six Kimpton properties in both states—Kimpton Hotel Eventi, Kimpton Ink48 Hotel, Kimpton Muse Hotel, Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia, Kimpton Hotel Palomar Philadelphia and Kimpton Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh.
As area director of hotel operations for New York and Pennsylvania, Hurlburt will work closely with general managers as well as with the leaders of various departments of each of the hotels. As general manager of Kimpton Muse Hotel in New York City, Hurlburt will be responsible for all aspects of the hotel and its day-to-day operations, including the 181 guest rooms and 19 suites, and dining destination. Hurlburt will also be overseeing a multimillion-dollar renovation throughout 2019, including a new fitness center and a new bar concept.
A nearly 25-year hospitality industry veteran, Hurlburt joined Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in 2012 as general manager of the Hotel Monaco Alexandria. In 2013 Hurlburt was named Kimpton’s area director of operations for the Mid-Atlantic Region, where he oversaw seven properties in Washington, D.C.
“I am delighted to take on both of these roles as area director of operations and general manager,” say Matthew. “I have been a member of the Kimpton family for many years, and I am excited to be able to work with the talented teams at each hotel to make the guest experience the best it can be.”
