The Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco appointed Mark Bingle, a 19-year Four Seasons veteran, as its new hotel manager.
A Georgetown University graduate who has lived in seven countries, Bingle began his career with Four Seasons at the Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel), where he was promoted seven times in seven years throughout the rooms division. In 2003, Bingle was asked to reopen Four Seasons Hotel Prague after the city was damaged in the 2002 floods, as front office manager and director of housekeeping.
After 10 years in city hotels, Bingle was relocated to the Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo. Bingle received the opportunity to manage his own property with Four Seasons in 2011 with the Four Seasons Hotel Carmelo, Uruguay, the brand’s second hotel in South America.
While in Uruguay, he was responsible for a public space and restaurant renovation. In March of 2015, Bingle led the transition of the company’s departure from Carmelo. After transitioning the Resort in South America, Bingle came full circle back to California. He spent one year as the hotel manager of Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto, overseeing the operation and leading a renovation of the hotel's rooms and meeting spaces.
“I look forward to meeting all my new San Francisco guests and residents and hopefully bringing new ideas from his travels throughout Four Seasons worldwide to the hotel,” Bingle said in a statement.
