Konrad Gstrein

Appointed General Manager
At Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco - CA, USA

Konrad Gstrein

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has announced the appointment of Konrad Gstrein as General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco. Gstrein takes the helm at the Five-Star address at a unique moment, overseeing the Hotel's reopening and welcoming guests to experience modern and spacious interiors within a 42-storey tower that was the first skyscraper of the 21st century completed in the city.

Born in the skiing destination of Sölden, Austria, Gstrein was working in a local tourism office when he came across a magazine article on Austrians who'd seen success abroad. Among those featured was Thomas Steinhauer, then General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, now a Regional Vice President based in Florida. After reaching out to the magazine for contact details, Gstrein was able to arrange an interview with Steinhauer, who offered him a starting position at the beachfront resort.

In 2017, Gstrein became General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Toronto as the property was honoured with a Five-Star rating from Forbes Travel Guide for the eighth consecutive year and its Spa with its first Five-Star rating ever. He oversaw the launch of Café Boulud by Chef Daniel Boulud, and the debut of the d|azur patio space inspired by the romance and elegance of French Riviera.
