Cornelia Samara, General Manager for Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center, will share the story behind her title with us on August 21, 2022.
The Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center is Philadelphia’s first-and-only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Hotel. Samara joined the team from Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club in Florida.
A true global citizen, Samara was born in Jerusalem as a German national with Palestinian roots and grew up immersed in the hospitality industry. Her family owned a travel agency and led tours of the Holy Land in Jerusalem and from an early age, she remembers traveling to the airport to greet arriving guests and going to dinners with tour groups.
“Hospitality runs in my blood,” says Samara, reflecting not only on her family history in the industry but also on building a sense of community in and outside the hotel. “A hotel is so much more than just a place to stay. It is an opportunity to create beautiful experiences and Four Seasons has done that for generations of Philadelphians. I’m proud to be part of a team that is tightly woven into the fabric of this community.”
