The JeffersonAward winning boutique hotel, The Jefferson is proud to announce the appointment of hospitality veteran David Bueno as General Manager. In his new position, Bueno will be responsible for the daily operation and continued revenue growth for the historically-rich property in the heart of Washington, DC

Prior to this role, Bueno oversaw culinary teams at renowned DC restaurants such as Café Milano and Taberna del Alabardero, before becoming The Jefferson’s Director of Food and Beverage and, then, its Hotel Manager. At The Jefferson, Bueno increased total food and beverage revenue by $3.3 million in two years, secured the esteemed Forbes Five Star rating for on-property Michelin starred restaurant Plume, and has maintained The Jefferson’s high TripAdvisor ranking among DC hotels for more than two years.

“In his growth through the hospitality ranks, David has touched all aspects of the culinary and hotel realm,” said The Jefferson’s Director, Philip Wood. “I’m confident that David’s unique perspective coupled with his award-winning track record will evolve our storied legacy into the future.”

Hailing from Spain, Bueno began his career in mechanical engineering. After reevaluating his professional path, he decided to transform his fascination for food and wine into a career. He first studied hospitality in Seville before earning a Master’s of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix and then followed by the General Manager Program at Cornell University.

“Driven by a love of food and wine, I came to the U.S. to pursue the American dream,” said Bueno. “Along this journey, I’m constantly humbled and inspired by the daily passion our staff exudes and the cherished memories our dignified guests share with us.”

Bueno, who began his hospitality career as a bus boy, now leads a staff of 180 employees at The Jefferson. When he’s not at the luxury hotel, Bueno enjoys spending time with his wife and four-year-old daughter, horseback riding, winetasting in the Middleburg, VA countryside, and shopping for fresh ingredients at the local market for Sunday dinner.
