The Gabriel Miami, Curio Collection by Hilton appointed Neal Spivack as the new General Manager.
The newly renovated lifestyle property located on Biscayne Boulevard is perfectly situated in the heart of Downtown Miami’s premier cultural district and is just steps away from the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and American Airlines Arena.
As a second-generation hotelier with over 15 years of experience, Neal discovered his passion for hospitality at an early age when he would attend work with his father at the Hilton Deerfield Beach, DoubleTree Fort Lauderdale, Holiday Inn Sunrise and more. Upon graduating from Florida State University in 2004, Neal followed in his father’s footsteps and began his career in the hospitality industry at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale where he worked for 10 years and undertook various positions, learning and gaining experience in different departments including housekeeping, front office and food & beverage. In 2015, he joined the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort as a hotel manager where he continued to develop his leadership style. Neal joined Evolution Hospitality and the pre-opening team of the Costa Hollywood Beach Resort in 2018 where he served as hotel manager, before quickly being promoted to general manager and oversaw daily operations.
In 2019, Neal transitioned to Evolution Hospitality’s third South Florida hotel, The Gabriel Miami, where he currently serves as general manager. Neal is thrilled to rejoin his Hilton family and is responsible for day-to-day staff management, maximizing guest satisfaction, ensuring high standards of professional service to customers and optimizing budget management.
“We are excited to have Neal Spivack leading our team at The Gabriel Miami. His extensive history with the Hilton brand and hospitality industry will be an asset to all positions on property,” said Raoul Thomas, CEO of CGI Merchant Group. “His passion for developing new ways to improve guest experience, creating a strong bond with staff and coordinating the general operations of the property will provide guests with a supreme level of customer experience and enhance brand value into the future,” adds Thomas.
