Boutique Design - Spring 2020 - 66

GLOBAL DESIGN MANAGER
H I LT O N | M C L E A N , V I R G I N I A

Your past life? Hair stylist and training other
stylists for a product manufacturer. One day,
as I was sitting in a hotel getting ready for a
sales meeting, I found myself contemplating
the art installation on the wall at breakfast.
Then it dawned on me: I can do that. I
realized someone selected that piece, and
it could provide a bit of respite to the guest
who may be far away from home. I could use
my experience as a business traveler to help
provide moments like that. Two weeks later,
I applied to the design school at Marymount
University in Arlington, Virginia, and got in.
How will you change the guestroom dynamic?
I would like to see a tech-free room type in
our properties for the people who want to
use their stay as a retreat to truly disconnect.
But my ultimate idea of luxury is to not have to hear the phone alarm
or struggle with an alarm clock. Let the blackout drapery be your
wake-up call; have them open at the exact right time for the sun to
wake you up.
Client presentation tip: Practice in front of your non-designer friends.
When they get it, you know you're ready.
What's on your boards? New Tapestry Collection by Hilton
developments in California, like the Fort Sutter Hotel in Sacramento,
Hotel Point Loma in San Diego, and the conversion of the Inn
at Saratoga.

SPRING 2020

What's your greatest point of pride? Coming
to the U.S. from Japan and getting to where
I am today. And having a kid at some point
along the way. I'm so proud of how I've
balanced the personal and professional.
Where have you been channeling most
of your energy? Social spaces. We just
completed the Commentary Social House at
the Westin Arlington, Virginia. Our branding
and design teams worked in tandem to
reimagine this three-meal restaurant into
more of a communal spot by utilizing all
the tools at our disposal: graphics, artwork,
menu direction, and more.
What has been your best tool? My restaurant
background. I'm so used to moving fast
thanks to that. But it's also taught me how to
pace my speed. You need to be a marathon
runner rather than a 100-meter sprinter.
Though I am not athletic at all, so I'm not
sure this analogy works...
What's on your boards? An Airstream hotel
in Tucson, where a number of them are
being placed on the roof of a diner (which
we are also designing).
What trends do you have your eye on right
now? I don't like that word. To me, if you are
following the trend, you are just a copy cat.
