William Wesley Myers has been promoted to regional director of spa for North America at Langham Hospitality Group.
Myers, who has been in the industry for over twelve years, served as the director of spa at Chuan Spa Chicago at The Langham for the last four years. He is credited with helping the spa gain a five star status from Forbes, and he recently won American Spa’s Professional’s Choice Award for Most Influential Spa Leader in 2017. Chuan Spa Chicago also won Favorite Spa Treatment Menu and Favorite Resort Spa under Myer’s leadership.
“Having helped build the Chuan Spa brand in Chicago, I am most excited about becoming involved with spa operations at our other hotels to help build even greater awareness for our offerings,” says Myers.
Myers has worked across the globe on a variety of luxury cruise lines. Beginning his career at the Golden Nugget (Las Vegas) in 2006, he moved to The Ritz-Carlton in Chicago before serving as assistant director of spa at Haven in SoHo (New York City). Myers then worked at The Dominick (formerly Trump SoHo), and was later appointed opening director of spa at Cornelia Spa at The Surrey Hotel, a property of Relais & Chateax (New York City).
“As our director of spa here at The Langham, Chicago for the past four years, William has delivered nothing but excellence to our colleagues and guests,” says Robert Schofield, managing director of The Langham, Chicago. “We are excited to see him attain this new role, where he can continue guiding our amazing staff and enriching the legendary guest experiences we are known for across all of the Langham Hotels and Chuan Spas in North America.”
Chuan Spas are rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the meridian system, and the five elements (wu xing): earth, water, fire, wood, and metal, and yin and yang. The Spa worked with an in-house TCM doctor to develop over 20 treatments to ensure integrity. To complement the services, Chuan created a retail brand which includes 5-Element Massage Oils and Essential Oils.
