BANGKOK - June 21, 2019 – Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas is pleased to announce the appointment of Dant Hirsch as general manager of Six Senses New York, the group’s first North American property which is currently under development and scheduled to open in 2020.
Dant brings more than 16 years of experience in the international hotel and tourism sectors, joining Six Senses from his most recent role at The Dominick New York, where he led his team to attain the prestigious AAA 5-Diamond rating for the independent hotel. Determination and hard work paid off in his career when he rose to the position of general manger after just five years at Tigh-Na-Mara Resort in Parkville British Columbia.
His professional journey continued at The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota and St. Regis Hotels & Resorts in Florida, leading to the openings of Ritz-Carlton Charlotte and the St. Regis flagship Florida hotel. In another coup, Dant joined Faena Miami Beach as general manager and achieved the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star rating in the opening year. His next role was to oversee all developmental initiatives and renovations for COMO Hotels & Resorts in the Americas.
Graduating from Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management, Dant also developed his love for fitness during this time, playing ice hockey at competitive levels and winning three ACHA National Championships. He later completed the General Manager’s Program at Cornell University.
As would be expected of a hotelier with an illustrious track record such as his, Dant enjoys traveling and delights in exploring great food and wine along the way. His favorite quote is: “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”. In his new role as general manager of Six Senses New York, he will bring all his property-opening experience and will be leading a talented team that shares his focus on well-being and living well.
Six Senses New York is a key element of The XI - two unique, twisting towers designed by world-renowned architect Bjarke Ingels in an unparalleled location between Manhattan’s popular High Line and the Hudson River. Guestrooms and suites designed by celebrated Parisian firm Gilles & Boissier are contemporary in style, offering every modern convenience wedded to a calm ambience of natural-hued fabrics and furnishings.
