Stéphanie Cherbakow Baron Appointed Spa Director at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center

Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center continues to add strong trailblazers to its leadership team by appointing Stéphanie Cherbakow Baron as the new Spa Director. With Philadelphia as her fourth Four Seasons property, Stéphanie is well-versed in arranging unparalleled and personalized wellness experiences.

"We are thrilled to welcome Stéphanie to our Spa team here in Philadelphia," says Cornelia Samara, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center. "Having worked in several regions across the globe, she has witnessed firsthand the wellness rituals performed by various cultures in different countries. We're excited for her to bring fresh practices and perspectives to our services and treatments."

Born in Hyères, France, Stéphanie acquired a beautician degree and specialized studies in spa management and massage therapy. After graduating, she began working as a trainer, before being appointed as a spa manager for a luxury hotel group in Southeast Asia and later taking her talents to resorts in Morocco. In 2013, Stéphanie's tenure with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts began as she made her way to Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, Malaysia, where she studied long-established Langkawi treatments targeting the mind, body and soul. Four years later, in 2017, the warmth of the Polynesian sun called as an opportunity presented itself at Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora, where the Spa services are rooted in ancient traditions intended to heal, refresh and rejuvenate.

Following her stint overseas, in 2021, Stéphanie travelled to North America, where she joined the team as the Spa Director at Four Seasons Hotel Montreal. Finding a new love for city properties and urban wellness journeys, she now holds the position of Spa Director in the City of Brotherly Love.

"As a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Spa, the team at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia is committed to providing exceptional levels of service, and I'm excited to be at the helm of this serene escape above the clouds," says Stéphanie Cherbakow Baron. "Working at both resorts and urban properties, I've realized that resorts force guests to slow down, but cities are living places. The moment guests enter our Spa, the goal is that they feel an immediate sense of calm and relaxation surrounding them. The hope is for guests to incorporate wellness into their daily routines and leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind, even if it's for a short time."

Well-travelled, bilingual and vastly experienced, Stéphanie brings worldly knowledge, expertise and an unwavering passion for curating unique moments led by genuine care for all those who disembark the elevators on the 57th floor.
