Czech Republic, Prague. April 01, 2020

Four Seasons Hotel Prague announces the appointment of Martin Dell as the new General Manager. This new role follows his most recent position as Resort Manager at Four Seasons Resort Maui, Hawaii.

Born and raised in the Czech Republic, Martin brings a wealth of global hospitality experience to his new role as General Manager in Prague. He began his career at the iconic Grandhotel Pupp in Karlovy Vary, before gaining a wide range of skills and hotel experiences with postings in Sydney, Hong Kong, and Doha. Martin's relationship with Four Seasons started in 2010 at Regent Singapore (formerly a Four Seasons hotel).

Martin holds a bachelor's degree in Business and Hotel Management from the William Blue Hospitality School in Sydney, Australia. He also gained a sommelier's certification from Wine Academy, Valtice, Czech Republic. Known for his strong leadership skills and management experience, Martin has also been involved in the creation of prestigious food and beverage outlets. His work on the Manhattan Bar at Regent Singapore resulted in numerous accolades; it came in third place in The World's 50 Best Bars and took the top spot in Asia.

"It's all about enjoying what we do. A healthy working culture, passion and dedication together make up the secret recipe for success. I do everything possible to support all our employees in their development, helping them to exceed their goals. Together, we are going to create magical moments for our guests and show them Prague at its very best." Martin is esteemed for his positive impact on employees and guests, his contagious energy, creative mindset and hands-on approach in day-to-day operations.

Martin is also happy to be coming home. "After almost two decades away, I'm thrilled to be back in the Czech Republic. I can't wait to share my knowledge and experiences with my new colleagues and with the next generation of hoteliers. Being a hotelier is a way of life, so becoming the first Czech General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Prague really is a dream come true for me."

In his free time, Martin is keen to rediscover Prague's restaurant and bar scene, support his favorite hockey team, and explore the Czech Republic's lakes and mountains with his wife Jana and his two children, daughter Stella and son Luca.

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
