The Harbor View Hotel has named Andrew Bartlett as its new general manager. He will oversee all operations of the 124-year-old hotel. The move marks a return to the Vineyard for Mr. Bartlett after a four-year tenure as general manager of the Plantation on Crystal River in Central Florida, which, like the Harbor View, is managed by Scout Hotels.
Mr. Bartlett joined the Scout family in 2009 as front office manager of the Kelley House in Edgartown. He was promoted to innkeeper less than a year later. A graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a degree in tourism planning and development, Mr. Bartlett launched his hospitality management career in Ojai, in Southern California.
In 2012, according to a press release, the Harbor View Hotel was named one of the Top 50 U.S. Resorts in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards issue, Best Hotel on the Vineyard by Martha’s Vineyard Magazine and Best Resort/Hotel by Cape Cod Magazine’s Gold Awards. The Harbor View is a member of Historic Hotels of America.
