Madeline Hotel & Residences in Mountain Village is pleased to announce the appointment of Robert Rhea as Director of Food & Beverage.


Tapping management experience earned across the country, Rhea oversees all dining operations for the Four-Diamond hotel, working closely with Executive Chef George Morris on creating exciting new local and seasonal offerings at Black Iron Kitchen and Bar, finalizing a new concept for M Club, and bringing the Sky Terrace into full operation as a unique destination for guests during the summer months.

Rhea will also work to cultivate relationships with area farmers, ranchers, fishmongers, distillers, and brew masters to source the finest local products for the hotel’s restaurants.

“With his Colorado pedigree and strong varied background in food and beverage management, Robert is a real asset as we sharpen our focus on attracting guests to the best dining experiences in Telluride,” said Duncan Hogarth, General Manager of Madeline Hotel and Residences. “We are delighted to welcome Robert back to the Rocky Mountains and to the most captivating destination in the state.”

A native Coloradan, Rhea grew up in Rifle just a few hours north of Telluride. Prior to joining Madeline Hotel and Residences, Rhea launched his career at Hawks Cay Resort in Duck Key, Florida in late 2010 as Director of Retail and Marina Operations. Rhea then moved on to Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale, Missouri, where he served as General Manager of food and beverage outlets for Top of the Rock, before heading to Florida to become Director of Food and Beverage at Hilton Cabana Miami Beach.

In his free time, Rhea is excited to enjoy the great outdoors of Colorado with snowboarding, hiking, fly fishing, and camping.
