Meet our Chef Concierge, Danny Vargas.  Yes, you read that correctly - Chef Concierge.  Danny was recently admitted to Les Clefs d'Or, a prestigious organization that is the global professional association of hotel concierges, as symbolized by the two crossed gold keys he wears on his lapels.  

Born and raised in Chicago, Danny's hospitality career has taken him around the country, including to Dallas and Maui.  He made the leap back to the "mainland", landing in Boston, where he worked at both the Colonnade Hotel and the now Loews Hotel before joining the Seaport team.  We are fortunate to count him as our friend and colleague for the past ten years.  In his time away from the hotel, he loves spending time which his two children, Olivia (6) and Mateo (2), as well as his wife Leanne; they enjoy exploring the city as much as possible.  He remains an avid fan of Chicago sports teams and loves to cook, especially outdoors.  

Danny has pulled together a number of suggestions designed especially for guests with a limited amount of time (2 - 4 hours) to spend seeing Boston.  Enjoy!
