International Hospitality Enterprises has named Albert Charbonneau Food and Beverage Director of San Juan’s Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, which reopened last December after a $200 million renovation.

Charbonneau will oversee all food and beverage operations for the property’s 319 rooms and suites, banquet and event spaces, bars and lounges, as well as its restaurants Ola and 1919.

“With the rising importance travelers place on dining and drinking experiences and the increase in weddings and corporate events, we know how important it is for Condado Vanderbilt’s restaurants, bars, and banquet facilities to be running smoothly,” said José M. Suárez, president of International Hospitality Enterprises. “Albert’s extensive experience in the restaurant and hospitality industries make him the ideal candidate to lead the charge as Food & Beverage Director.”

Charbonneau joins Condado Vanderbilt with 25 years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industries, most recently serving as general Manager of the Qantas First & Business Class Lounge at Los Angeles International Airport.

“I’m excited to join the team at this historic property and work with a prestigious chef like Juan Jose Cuevas on the continued success of the hotel’s restaurants, bars, and banquet facilities,” he said.
