TORONTO — Konrad Gstrein is the new general manager of The Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco.
“We’re open and ready for business, looking forward to welcoming guests who have loved this hotel for years, as well as a new generation of travellers who are discovering Four Seasons hospitality for the first time,” says Gstrein.
Born in Austria, Gstrein was working in a local tourism office when he came across a magazine article on Austrians who’d experienced success abroad. Among those featured was Thomas Steinhauer, then general manager of Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, now a regional vice-president based in Florida. After reaching out to the magazine for contact details, Gstrein was able to arrange an interview with Steinhauer, who offered him a starting position at the beachfront resort.
In 2017, Gstrein became general manager of Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, where he oversaw the launch of Café Boulud by Chef Daniel Boulud, and the debut of the d|azur patio space inspired by the romance and elegance of French Riviera.
