The Hyatt Regency San Francisco appointed Matthew Humphreys as GM of the property, which is located on the city’s Embarcadero across the street from the Ferry Building.
Drawing on over 20 years of experience within Hyatt Hotels Corporation—including the past 10 years at several Bay Area Hyatt hotels—Humphreys is responsible for all operations at the 804-room property and oversees its various departments, programs, and staff.
“I look forward to joining and working at Hyatt Regency San Francisco,” Humphreys said in a statement. “The dedication of the entire team here at Hyatt Regency San Francisco has certainly contributed to the long and wonderful history of the hotel, and I’m honored to be joining this community.”
Most recently, Humphreys was GM of the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara, Calif., but his career with Hyatt began in 1993 when he started as a bellman at the Hyatt in Beaver Creek, Colo. Humphreys’ management experience burgeoned in other Hyatt hotels in such locations as South Carolina, Washington state, Hawaii and Southern California.
Humphreys’ dedication to the Hyatt Hotels Corporation can be seen in the number of awards he has earned, from “Manager of the Quarter” awards at Hyatt Regency Long Beach and Greenville, S.C., the Malama Award for Manager of the Year from the Hawaii Hotels and Lodging Association and “Rookie of the Year-Most Outstanding New Leader.” Before starting his career with Hyatt Hotels, Humphreys graduated from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a degree in Hotel Administration.
