Careers

03/18/2019 - The Siren Hotel – General Manager
The Siren Hotel is actively seeking experienced candidates for the position of General Manager for immediate hire.

The Siren Hotel occupies the former Wurlitzer Building, a landmark, 47,060 square foot, 13-story building. Designed in the Renaissance Revival style and opened in December 1926, this 13-story building once housed the famous Wurlitzer Co., which made pianos, organs, jukeboxes, radios and instruments and which also housed a music school.

The Siren Hotel is part of the ongoing downtown Detroit renaissance in perhaps the best location in the city and comprises of 106 rooms across five categories including eight striking penthouse floor lofted suites. The hotel houses several food and beverage concepts such as Candy Bar, 8-seat chef's counter restaurant Albena by Chef Garrett Lipar, Populace Coffee in the lobby and the upcoming Karl's all-day dining restaurant, captained by Detroit's very own Chef Kate Williams, the latter opening summer 2019.

The hotel renovation maintained and embraced the traces of grand Detroit that have remained throughout years of neglect and blight: delicate and gracefully aged travertine floors have been brought back to their original grandeur; intricate Art Deco cast iron stair railings were restored and the original façade with terracotta ornamental details were given a new lease on life in a careful historic renovation. The Siren enchants all to linger just a little longer. The right candidate will embrace this history and be a steward of the exquisite interiors and of the hospitality that we want to demonstrate to the city. An ideal candidate will be extremely service-oriented and have a sensible eye for detail.

A team comprised of diverse individuals guiding guests through the rebirth of the great city of Detroit, and a deep knowledge of historic, cultural and design references will lead the way.
