José Adames joined Four Seasons in March 1999 as Assistant Front Desk Manager at The Pierre (formerly a Four Seasons hotel) in New York City.  He was quickly promoted to Front Desk Manager in July 2000.  In November 2003, he transferred to Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, where he was promoted to Assistant Director of Rooms.  Just eight months later he was promoted to Director of Rooms and in this role, helped to reposition the property as one of the premier hotels in Los Angeles.  During his time at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, he assisted with the extensive renovation of both CUT and THE Blvd Restaurants, the guest rooms and the Spa.  

In August 2006, the Lone Star State beckoned and José transferred as Director of Rooms to Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas, where he again assisted with a major room and lobby renovation, the opening of the new villas and reconstruction of a golf course.  In July 2008, he was promoted to Hotel Manager at Four Seasons Hotel Austin, where he attended his share of music festivals and more importantly, helped to structure the new Residence Club component as the premiere residence in Austin.  In November 2010, José made his way to the paradise of Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita as the Resort Manager and an integral part of that amazing family for more than three years.

In 2014, José was promoted to General Manager in Four Seasons Mexico City where he led his team to achieve the highest revenue and highest profitability in the Hotel's history. The Hotel was named Best Business Hotel Mexico by Travel and Leisure magazine, and in 2017, regained its Triple AAA Five Diamond status, the only hotel in Mexico City to have earned this award. In March of 2018, he moved to Anguilla.

Although he’s trading in the big city lights to come to Anguilla, he’s certainly no stranger to life in the Caribbean. José has family from the Dominican Republic, and spent almost every summer there as a child, visiting his grandparents.

In his spare time he loves to travel and enjoys watersports, which has proven to be very beneficial to his decision to move to Anguilla. It’s easy to island hop and enjoy this tropical paradise he now calls home.
