Senior Contributing Editor

David Eisen is the managing editor of Hotel Management and Hotel Design.

Favorite Movie: The Big Lebowski

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.
