Raluca Andreea Avacaritei

A.K.A. "The Operator"

Close to 15 years of NYC operational experience in union hotels across the city.  Of which, the last 13 years were spent in operations within branded and independent lifestyle hotels, such as Row (1332 keys), Manhattan Times Square (700 keys) and The Lexington Hotel, Autograph Collection (725 keys).
Raluca was born in Romania with a natural curiosity for languages, and the innate ability to learn 5.  Since she loves meeting new people, knowing so many languages in New York City made it very easy to make new friends.  Prior to moving to the Big Apple, she became inspired by the art of hospitality during her college days in Messina, Italy.  Outside of work, her true passion is family and spending as much time as possible enjoying Caribbean getaways.
