New General Manager Brings Experience and Vision to the Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia

The Arrival of Darryll Adams Promises Continued Success for This Luxury Hotel in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- It is said that good things come to those who wait, but in the case of Darryll Adams, the new General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia, a better maxim might be that good things come to those who work hard. For Adams's story exemplifies the rewards born from dedication and capability, and his recent appointment as General Manager is as inspiring as it is exciting for the Center City Philadelphia hotel.

Adams joined this luxury hotel on April 19, 2014 after a long and loyal career within the Marriott and Ritz-Carlton families. Adams began his career in 1988 as a security supervisor at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington, D.C. After earning numerous promotions for his hard work and natural talent, Adams eventually transitioned to The Ritz-Carlton, Hotel Company.

It was with the Ritz-Carlton properties, like The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner and The Ritz-Carlton Resorts of Naples, that Adams honed his leadership skills. Such was his reputation that he assisted with the opening of no fewer than six different Ritz-Carlton properties before becoming the Hotel Manager at Florida's The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. True to character, Adams seized the opportunity to excel. During his tenure, the property earned numerous awards and accolades, including the prestigious Cobalt Award, an internal accolade that recognizes individuals who have improved their properties' operations to create a significant and positive impact on engagement for all ladies and gentlemen and guests of the hotel, product and service excellence, and financial performance.

With such an illustrious track record, Adams makes an exciting addition to The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia. The Philadelphia hotel enjoys a reputation as impressive as Adams' own, largely thanks to its successful blend of legacy and future. The historic hotel, for example, boasts 9,000 tons of original Georgian marble, while high-tech meeting rooms, adventurous culinary experiences at 10 Arts Bistro and access to the legendary Penthouse suite speak to the needs and desires of modern travelers. Adams' hands-on approach to leadership promises only to enhance the overall quality of the luxury hotel.
