When you ask any of us at Vineyard Square what sets us apart, the unanimous answer is, “our staff.” We believe the people at Vineyard Square are some of the best on the island, offering our guests the sort of warm welcome and thoughtful service that will be well-remembered for a long time after your ferry leaves.
We are pleased to introduce Wesley Sullivan-Doyle as the new general manager of Vineyard Square Hotel & Suites. Wes is not exactly a new face; he has been with us for the past three years with an enthusiastic hello and a knack for making a stay at Vineyard Square a special one. Wes’s commitment to stellar service is obvious, and one that he shares with our entire staff.
To help you get to know Wes, we put him in the hot seat for an edition of the Vineyard Square Staff Six.
Here’s Wesley Sullivan-Doyle, General Manager.
1. Give us your one-minute memoir, including how you came to Vineyard Square.
I was born and raised in Rhode Island, which means I love coffee milk. I have been on the Vineyard since 2012 after a stylist at the Sea Spa Salon lured me here. I was working for Starwood Hotels at an airport property and was in desperate need of a change of pace. I was supposed to stay for the summer, but I never left.
2. What was your best moment at Vineyard Square (so far)?
That’s a tough question. Each check-in gives me the chance to make other people’s vacations awesome, so the best moments come every day. Working with The Dream Foundation, for terminally ill adults, led to one of my top “best” moments.
3. What word describes you best?
Problem-solver. I work well under pressure.
4. Do you have any hidden (or not-so-hidden) talents?
I managed an independent record label based in Boston before moving to the island. I was in charge of securing new talent and overseeing the recording process for artists. An artist I worked with made it onto the Billboard Top 100 this past year, so I think that I know how to spot a good thing when I see it.
5. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
I would love the ability to talk to animals because I think they would have an amusing take on life. Not that I don’t already talk to animals.
6. What are your favorite things to do/see/eat on Martha’s Vineyard?
Pack the Jeep, deflate the tires, drive onto Norton Point and cook dinner on the beach. There is no better reminder that I live on an island.
