Boutique Hotel Owner: Carolyn Schneider

Co-Founder of Casetta Group

Carolyn Schneider grew up in Los Angeles and graduated from New York University. After working in New York City nightlife and restaurants, she quickly fell in love with hotels and began managing Events at Ace Hotel New York. From there, she joined the team at Vikram Chatwal Collection (management company of Dream Hotels), leading Sales and Marketing for their properties in Times Square. When Ace Hotel Group decided to open in Downtown Los Angeles, they recruited Carolyn to move back to the West Coast to join the pre-opening team, where she built accounts from the ground up in a culturally emerging area of Los Angeles. Proper Hospitality, created by the owners of the Viceroy brand, then recruited her as Director of Sales and Marketing for their luxury high rise, designed by Kelly Wearstler in the heart of Hollywood. Next, excited to work with a historic building again, Carolyn jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with Sydell Group to open The NoMad Hotel Los Angeles, formerly a bank built in the1920’s, where she served as Director of Guest Experience. In addition, Carolyn co-founded a consulting company, where she helped emerging hospitality companies build their brand, and developed comprehensive service training programs for employees. Carolyn joined Casetta Group with a passion for hospitality, management and service, and a specific interest in revitalizing small boutique properties.
