Dawson comes to the Doubletree from the Mahogany Run Golf Course in St Thomas, although he has spent time in Puerto Rico, including as sous chef at the Agave Cocina Mexicana on San Juan’s Ashford Avenue and opening his first restaurant the Condado Cantina, also in San Juan.

Dawson is part of a wider group of executive appointments that include new director of sales and marketing Lisandra Alicea and Hotel Manager Denise Santos.
