David Piscola Appointed General Manager of Capital Hilton

Twenty-Two Year Hospitality Veteran Takes Helm of Historic Hotel

July 08, 2014 // Franchising.com // McLean, Va. - David Piscola has been appointed general manger of the historic Capital Hilton, located two blocks from the White House in Washington, D.C. Piscola will oversee the operations of this 547-room landmark hotel, which has been recently renovated and the site of many of Washington’s most noteworthy events. He most recently served as general manager of Hilton Atlanta Airport as well as cluster general manager with responsibilities that included Embassy Suites Atlanta Airport.

Piscola is a twenty-two year veteran of Hilton Worldwide and has held several executive positions with a primary focus on food and beverage. As general manager of Hilton Atlanta Airport for the past six years, he dramatically improved operating efficiencies and customer service satisfaction scores.

Prior to his post as general manager, Piscola was the director of operations at the same hotel. He has served as director of food and beverage for Hilton Atlanta; Hilton Alexandria Mark Center and Hilton McLean Tyson’s Corner, as well as Hilton Portland in Oregon. In addition, he was the cluster director of food and beverage for the Mid-Atlantic.

Piscola is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park, N.Y. with an A.O.S. in culinary arts. He also received a bachelor’s degree in hotel and restaurant management from the University of New Haven.

Piscola is married to Lisa and together they have a 165-pound Great Dane named Maggie and a cat named Jake. The couple enjoy mountain biking and kayaking.

The historic Capital Hilton is located two blocks from the White House along K Street in downtown Washington, DC. Since opening its doors as a Statler Hotel in 1943, the hotel staff has hosted Washington’s most noteworthy events and served the world’s most famous dignitaries, including Winston Churchill, Princess Elizabeth, Queen Noor of Jordan and Charles Lindberg, along with countless senators, congressmen, world ambassadors and celebrities. Although the hotel has hosted every U.S. President since Franklin Delano Roosevelt, including President Barack Obama’s first black-tie dinner as Commander-in-Chief, the hotel is also known for its historical significance in mid-century architecture – it was one of the few grand hotels built in the nation during World War II, and was widely considered America’s most modern hotel of its time. The hotel with 547 rooms was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in July 2007.
