Meet the Marvelous Manya du Hoffman, Vice President of Sales & Marketing of Triumph Hotels. We reconnected with this powerful leading lady at the exquisite Iroquois Hotel New York. Built in 1903, and most recently renovated in 2018, this Small Luxury Hotel and a historic landmark of New York City. 

What better spot to catch up with a dear friend and long-time icon of TaleAGuest than in Midtown Manhattan, in the heart of everything New York. Manya is looking stunning as always and we can’t wait to hear what she has to share with us.

Stepping in with the ease and style she’s known for, we love the chance to get to see her in her element. Manya has been an inspiration to us since day one. She was the leading lady in our TaleAGuest pilot photoshoot back in the fall of 2013, planting some of the first seeds that would become the brand you know today.

Her eye for the absolutely unique, for one-of-a-kind experiences, and the arts led her to us. We clicked instantly. Was it fate? We’ll always think so. As Walt Whitman said, “I have learned that to be with those I like is enough.” We can’t help but make magic when we collaborate with Manya!

We can’t think of a more capable and compelling leader to have in our corner. Dynamic and energetic, there’s nothing that this superwoman can’t do once she sets her mind to it.

We stay motivated and positive, encouraged by the wise words of Walt Whitman, “Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.” Manya knows exactly how to catch the light and make the most of it, shining from the inside out.

We love the memories and stories that we share with Manya, and we’re so happy that our lives are intertwined. Both pragmatic and imaginative, she stands apart, ready to try new things and make new creative leaps.

“Have you learned the lessons only of those who admired you, and were tender with you, and stood aside for you? Have you not learned great lessons from those who braced themselves against you, and disputed passage with you?” Walt Whitman asks.

“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you. You must travel it by yourself. It is not far. It is within reach.”
