New president for Boca Resort

Boca Raton Resort & Club announces Daniel A. Hostettler has been appointed president of the 200-acre waterfront resort.

A veteran of the hospitality industry and known for his innovative approach, Hostettler will oversee all aspects of the Resort & Club, including the property’s continued transformational renovation as a luxury destination.

With a more than 25-year career in luxury hotel, restaurant, and private clubs, Hostettler has developed and reimagined leading landmark hotels and resorts worldwide.

As president and group managing director of Ocean House Management Collection for the past 12 years, he has overseen every aspect of five, award-winning New England properties. They include Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, one of only 13 Triple Five-Star Hotels in the world.

All the hotels are part of the Relais & Châteaux association of privately owned luxury hotels. While serving as president of Boca Raton Resort & Club, Hostettler will continue his role as North American president of Relais & Châteaux, promoting and working with 88 properties in the United States, Mexico, Canada, and Caribbean.

He is also a member of the Cornell Hotel Society, a trustee of the Culinary Institute of America and a visiting professor at Johnson & Wales University in North Miami.

“Throughout Daniel’s career, he has built thriving cultures and exemplary guest service levels and experiences while overseeing complex repositioning projects,” Coburn Packard, partner and head of The Real Estate Group at MSD Partners, L.P., owner of the Resort & Club said in the announcement. “Here in Boca Raton, our sights are set on redefining luxury hospitality, and Daniel is undoubtedly one of very few leaders who can partner with ownership to achieve our vision for the property.”

“The Boca Raton Resort & Club is one of the world’s finest properties, and this opportunity will be the capstone of my career,” Hostettler said. “The Resort gave life to an entire city in 1926, and leading into its 100th anniversary, we will complete the property’s most significant transformation in its history. I look forward to honoring the property’s history and working with the team to create new, innovative experiences that will once again place the Resort & Club atop the most prestigious lists worldwide.”

The Boca Raton Resort & Club launched a transformational renovation in September 2020. MSD Partners and Northview Hotel Group are reimagining the legendary property with an award-winning team of architects, designers, and brand-makers, including Rockwell Group, EDSA, GarciaStromberg, and King & Partners.

Highlights include restaurants, eateries and bars; a new, four-acre lakefront oasis featuring luxury cabanas, four pools and a lazy river; a complete reconfiguration and renovation of the Tower, including guestrooms and suites; and all new services and experiences.
