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. From there, he oversaw the opening food and beverage team of Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort. Transferring next as Hotel Manager for Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, he led a multi-million guest room renovation, from corridors to rooms to suites.
Now at Four Seasons Hotel Chicago as General Manager, Wancha will oversee another renovation - the largest renovation in the Hotel's history, revealing a new restaurant, newly re-imagined event spaces, lobby and arrival experience in spring 2020.
