Job Posting for F&B Assistant Director - Carpenter Hotel at Carpenter
About our Company:
Tucked just between Zilker Park and Downtown Austin, Carpenter Hotel evokes an easy time in Austin full of fresh air, Texas sunshine, and days spent lazing by the water with a book. A bridge between the city and the outdoors, each part of the property nods to its native surroundings and its rich history. The lobby, restaurant Carpenters Hall, and coffee shop are built in the former Carpenters Local 1266 Union Hall, built in 1948. The hotel features a pool, large pavilion, and 93-rooms, each with a private terrace. While the original meeting hall has been reimagined as our front desk, cafe, and restaurant, and it and the hotel itself are still a place for folks to meet up—to share space and community.
