Cary Michael Gray has been appointed general manager of the W Taipei. The hotel, which is scheduled to open in late 2010, is located in the buzzing central business district of Xinyi.

Gray joined Starwood in 1980. In 1985, Gray was assigned to the Sheraton Okinawa and promoted just two years later to general manager, becoming the youngest general manager in the company. Gray has served as general manager for a long list of luxury hotels, including St. Regis Beijing, St. Regis Shanghai, The Westin Tokyo, Kobe Bay Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Sheraton Okinawa, Sheraton Grande Laguna Beach at Phuket, Thailand, and - simultaneously - Australia’s Sheraton Mirage Gold Coast and Sheraton Port Douglas.

Born in Hawaii, Gray’s long career in hospitality has taken him around the globe, including positions in the U. S., Japan, Australia and China. His passion for hotels can be traced to the Gray family beachside hotel, “Gray’s by the Sea”, and his high-school years working at various well-known restaurants on the mainland. Although he took a slight detour from hospitality to study architecture in New York, he veered back and transferred to California State Polytechnic University to major in hotel and restaurant management.

“I’m honored to be entrusted with the management of this wonderful new W hotel,” said Gray. “W Taipei will serve as the ultimate city getaway, where a veritable ‘urban beach’ flirts with the senses at every touchpoint. Located in one of Asia’s most cosmopolitan cities, W Taipei will become one of the coolest destinations in the world for global jetsetters, and I am looking forward to introducing the signature W contemporary lifestyle experience to Taiwan.”

Rising 31 floors, W Taipei will offer guests a panoramic vista of the bustling Xinyi district. Designed by London-based G.A. Design International Ltd, W Taipei’s 405 guestrooms and suites are among the largest of Taipei’s luxury hotels.
