Hector Rosario has been named the new executive chef at the hotel, while Felix Vizcaino has been appointed as the Doubletree’s new F&B director.

“We have selected Rosario and Vizcaino as the key leaders to initiate and implement an exciting new direction for our food and beverage teams,” said Yodil Caban, General Manager of the Doubletree. “They will be instrumental in helping us elevate the hotel’s dining experience, both by expanding our core business and bringing in new visitors and locals.”
