David Eisen

David Eisen is the managing editor of Hotel Management and Hotel Design. He has been covering the lodging industry for the past 7 years and, to paraphrase George Bernard Shaw, dislikes feeling at home when abroad. While writing about hotel industry fundamentals is intriguing and fascinating, he'd "rather be" on the golf course. His favorite sports teams all hail from Maryland and Washington, D.C., where he grew up (Go Bullets Wizards!)

Favorite Movie: The Big Lebowski

Favorite Quote: 'Yeah, man, it really tied the room together.'

Story: Meeting Frank Thomas (former Chicago White Sox great) at the Las Vegas airport on the way back from a hotel conference. He was eating a Whopper and sipping a Chablis.
