Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, located along the famed Magnificent Mile, has named Stephen Wancha its new General Manager. Wancha, who was most recently Hotel Manager at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, is only the fourth General Manager in the 30-year history of Four Seasons in Chicago.
Wancha first joined the company in Las Vegas, and his first director position was at Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis as Director of Food and Beverage.
