Pablo Torres Named General Manager Of The British Colonial Hilton Nassau
April 27, 2009
NASSAU, Bahamas - Hilton Hotels Corporation announces that Pablo Torres has been appointed general manager of the 288-guestroom British Colonial Hilton Nassau - downtown Nassau's only hotel with a secluded beach. Pablo most recently served as director of operations at the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where he also began his hospitality career.
Pablo joins the British Colonial Hilton Nassau in time to finalize and debut the property's multi-million dollar makeover, featuring upgrades to rooms, public areas, and meetings space, as well as new restaurant and bar concepts.
A 17-year hospitality professional, Pablo started off as a food and beverage management trainee at the Caribe Hilton. Since then, he has held key roles with an array of internationally recognized hotel brands throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. He also spent a term at Hilton's international corporate office in the UK as a corporate food and beverage trainer and system installer, giving him an opportunity to work on projects globally from the UK and Europe to Asia and the Middle East. Pablo holds a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Hocking College in Ohio and has also attended Cornell University's hospitality programs.
He is married to his wife of 11 years, Rita, and has two children: Valentina (10 years) and Juan Pablo (11 months).
Located in the heart of downtown Nassau, 25 minutes from the airport, the British Colonial Hilton Nassau boasts the only secluded beach in the downtown area. The location is ideal for business guests as well as those preferring a quieter vacation location. The secluded beach overlooking the harbor is complemented by a freshwater swimming pool, fitness center, complimentary non-motorized water sports, and landscaped gardens. 288 guest rooms, including 47 Executive Floor rooms and 23 suites with executive lounge access, offer stunning harbor views or city views. Dining options are plentiful as is the hotel's colorful past. British Colonial Hilton Nassau is said to be built on the site of what was once the infamous Blackbeard the pirate's residence and served as the setting for the James Bond movies "Never Say Never Again" and "Thunderball."
