Mark Pardue // (c) 2010 Grand Hyatt New York
The Grand Hyatt New York announced the appointment of Mark Pardue as its new general manager. The storied property is preparing to usher in a new era with the final phase of its $130 million renovation. The Grand Hyatt New York is the 10th Hyatt property that Pardue has worked at since he began working with Hyatt more than 22 years ago.
As general manager, Pardue will manage all aspects of the hotel, including its 1,311 guestrooms and suites, public areas and meeting spaces. This month, he will also introduce the new restaurant New York Central — a new vibrant and contemporary establishment at the hotel that overlooks 42nd Street.
Pardue comes to Grand Hyatt New York after a four-year tenure as general manager of Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino in Lake Tahoe, Calif. Arriving after the completion of the property’s $62 million renovation, Pardue was instrumental in setting the standard for luxury and service at the renowned lakeside resort.
