Billionaire real estate developer Jeff Greene replaced Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants as the management company running the Tideline Resort and Spa, his oceanfront hotel in Palm Beach. Greene, a resident of Palm Beach, told the Palm Beach Post his top priority is excellence in all phases of operations at the 134-room resort hotel in his town, which he says reflects on him.

The Post reported that Kimpton stopped running the hotel on Jan. 19 and that a company aligned with Greene, Sand & Sea LLC would assume responsibility for operating the hotel and its restaurants. Greene hired Chistine Fahmy as the new general manager of the Tideline. Greene, who bought the hotel in 2011, plans to invest $1 million to upgrade the property. [Palm Beach Post] Mike Seemuth
