The Peninsula Beverly Hills Famed Manager Moves on to Montage
Ali Kasikci shocked a lot of people in the hotel industry when he announced his retirement from the Peninsula Beverly Hills a few months ago. The man made famous for doing push-ups on the guestroom armoires cited a desire to move onto something new.
We have actually heard whispers that the hotel was upset with him over his lavish treatment of guests on the company dime. Although we respect a hotel's bottom line, isn't it his job to spoil the guests?
Anyways, it's been announced that Kasikci will join the new Montage Beverly Hills Resort, just a few blocks away from his old haunt, as the managing director when the hotel opens in Fall 2008. We're not sure if he's still at the Peninsula--he was expected to stay on through December--but it's clear that the Montage resort is right up his alley. The seven-story hotel will have 201 rooms including 55 suites, three restaurants, a rooftop pool and a full-service spa.
