Windsor Court Hotel named Ralph Mahana general manager.
Mahana has worked for the past two years as the hotel’s assistant general manager, where he was responsible for all hotel operations and functionality. Prior to 2016, his tenure comprised a variety of departmental leadership roles, including director of rooms, operations, front desk, guest services and the hotel’s premiere food and beverage outlets.
“Although it’s only 34 years old, this hotel is rich in history – not only for the amazing art collection and the tenured staff, but also because of the incredible guests – from Princess Anne and Bill Clinton to Oprah and Justin Timberlake – who have passed through here,” Mahana said.
An alumnus of Tulane University and Isidore Newman School, Mahana is a New Orleans native with well-established ties to the Windsor Court: his family had a standing reservation in The Grill Room almost every Friday night during his youth.
“Windsor Court is one of the premier hotels in the world, and it’s in my favorite city in the world. I grew up in this hotel and working here allows me to give back to the city of New Orleans.”
Windsor Court features 316 guest rooms and 10,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
