Regional Sales & Marketing Manager
Almanac Hotels are looking to recruit a Regional Sales & Marketing Manager to promte our hotels to Leisure and MICE clients in the DACH Region.
Almanac Hotels is a new hospitality tastemaker developing iconic hotels in landmark European locations. Almanac Hotels aims to develop a diverse experience in each city and create a vibrant social hub that facilitates collaboration between guests and locals.
Sensory Hospitality, a world where our hotel serves to truly feel connected to the soul of the city you wish to discover. A place where travelers can indulge in their senses, lean in to discover, be curious, and feel like part of the city culture.
We believe our interactions with guests are as important as the design of our hotels. In fact, our dedication to genuine, inviting, warm service is what we are most proud of. Our staff is the living, breathing example of the Almanac brand, making each guest feel cared for, among friends, and a part of this inspiring city.
Almanac Hotels consists of two brands, Almanac and Almanac X. Almanac Hotels are well curated, cultivated, luxury, lifestyle hotels focusing on sensory hospitality. Almanac X Hotels are chic places to stay and be. Offering guests to truly feel connected to the local food and drink culture.
The very first Almanac Hotel opened successfully in Barcelona in 2018. It is a 5-star boutique hotel, featuring a luxurious yet relaxed atmosphere amid all of Barcelona's best destinations.
Housed in an historic Ring Boulevard Palais alongside the lush Stadtpark in Vienna, Almanac Vienna is the next hotel of the brand, set to open by the end of 2022.
Almanac X Hotels will enter the market with their first property in Prague by the 4th quarter of 2022. One of Prague’s landmark hotels – the 204-room Alcron, just off Wenceslas Square – is to be refurbished and re-launched as the Almanac X Prague.
And more hotels are in the pipeline for the next years to come.
