CURRICULUM VITAE SUMMARY: 


Mr. Neal Prince, was Born in Corsicana, Texas with degrees in Architecture and Architectural Engineering from Rice University in Houston, Texas. Mr. Prince did military service with the United States Army 39th Combat Engineers in Italy. Returning to Texas, he first joined the Architectural Firm of Ernest Schultz. He soon became active at the Houston Little Theater, which produced a prizewinning play, "Cry Out Cassandra," that he had authored. After a period as he gave up his Architectural profession to become the President and Business Manager of the Houston Little Theatre, he went to the East coast and served for a season as Director of The Wyndham Playhouse in New Hampshire. A spell in New York with the Actors Studio brought him to the classical quandary of those bitten by the theatre bug: a regular job supporting a regular diet or stick it out in Theater. Creature comfort won and through the Architectural League he secured a position with the firm of York & Sawyer Architects in 1950, the firm was noted for the design of hospitals. After several months of observations in New York Bellevue Hospital, Mr. Prince became the firm's expert on the layout and planning of Hospital Emergency Rooms. In due course he decided against a lifetime in Healthcare Architecture, Mr. Prince switched firms to Schoen & Hennessy Architecture Firm in 1954 (The Named Partner was the son of Eugene Schoen, renown "Art Deco" Designer, who became a mentor to Mr. Prince), when Mr. Prince was assigned a project to design a motorway restaurant for Restaurant Associates, New York's most creative force in restaurant operations at the time. The job involved a complete package: Architecture, Drafting and Interior Design. Mr. Prince took a genuine interest in the latter, and made a career move to the Walter M. Ballard Corporation, Interior Design Firm in 1958, at Byron Calhoun's request, he did work on a project to remodel the Hotel Jaragua in Ciudad Trujillo, Dominican Republic, most of which was never carried out, and a modest remodeling of the San Juan Hotel in Puerto Rico. The Firm of Walter M. Ballard had a contract for the Interiors of the Phoenicia InterContinental Hotel in Beirut, Lebanon, and Mr. Prince was sent there to work on the Interiors and also, because of his background, to represent the architect, Edward Stone, in matters of the Interior layouts and finishes. All the furniture pieces were designed by Mr. Prince and manufactured locally with Prince's supervision. In January 1961, Mr. Prince was hired to work full time as the Staff Vice President of Interior Design Division for Intercontinental Hotels, a Pan-Am Airlines Development Department. The intention, being at least in developing countries, that InterContinental Hotels would produce its Interior Designs "in-house" and be reimbursed at cost under the TSA's. Mr. Prince shortly engaged Kenneth Smith, from the Walter M. Ballard Firm, and Charles R. Alvey, a specialist in Graphics and Industrial Design. Mr. Prince's concepts and ideas were the forefront of its time, after designing and opening as many as 154 International InterContinental Hotels from 1961-1985, Mr. Prince gained the deepest respect on the International Interior Design level. Mr. Prince uses function with ethnic style. With his ability to design each new Hotel using local materials and talents, such as the native artists and craftsman, he produced each Hotel with its own National personality and flare but maintained the Corporate highest standards of InterContinental Hotel. Mr. Prince gained the respect and acceptance by the local authorities.  This in turn avoided any local resistance in building the new Hotels around the world. With the assistance of Charles R. Alvey, Richard W. Simpson, Dale and Pat Keller, Joe Grusczak, James Ray Baker, Irene D'Alessio and others, Mr. Prince became an Innovator as he helped created an industry of International Hotel Designs and personalities that reflected the indigenous Country in each property. InterContinental Hotels gained much growth and respect throughout the world by those concepts of designs. Still today, his work is relatively unknown on a domestic level, but his concepts and designs are still utilized by the InterContinental Hotels Group and Hotel Designers. Much is to be learned from Mr. Prince's long history of experience from his first complete design for a hotel, Phoenicia InterContinental Hotel in Beirut, Lebanon, to his last project doing the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington, D.C. Much is to be passed down from Mr. Prince's experience and knowledge. It is important that this is passed on in an educational manner.

PROFESSIONAL HOTEL DESIGN SUMMARY:

NEAL PRINCE’S
GREAT GRAPHICS AND GRAND DESIGNS:

In 2006, Mr. Neal Prince Interior Designs for InterContinental Hotels are still strong today as they were during his tender. As Staff Vice-President of the Interior and Graphic Design Division for the International InterContinental Hotel Group from 1961; his Department's touch is still visible in many of the murals and matchbooks, sofas and stir sticks, banquet rooms in as many as 154 luxury hotels until his retirement in 1986. "When you've seen one of our Hotels, you haven't seen them all, " which an advertising slogan as Mr. Prince noted in one of his interviews. InterContinental Hotels endeavors to reflect the individuality of each country while providing the highest and consistent standard of service and amenities. Maintaining that balance was a formidable job, but the Texas-born Neal Adair Prince has been equal to this task for well over 60 years, collecting numerous Interior Design Awards in the process. He designed the famous oval swimming pool in Beirut's Phoenicia Hotel, and the popular bar beneath it, where a glass windows provided a view of the pool with modern-day mermaids against a rippling back ground of mosaic title. The pool was a favorite gathering place for Pan-Am crew members, until civil strife shut down the hotel in 1976.

SUGAR AND SARIS:

When Neal Prince began his InterContinental Hotel career in 1961; the hotel group was expanding to cities where International Luxury Hotels were a distinct novelty. Mr. Prince further noted that, "There were places where we could have named the hotel dinning room 'The Only Restaurant in Town. But the world has changed a lot since then." During his career with IHC,  800 service items had to pass Mr. Prince's scrutiny, and no detail was too small for him to consider for each Hotel. An InterContinental Hotel table setting still to this day bears his stamp from the Menu to the wrapping on the sugar packets, Staff uniforms, Saris and cheongsams, sport shirts and sarongs, dashikis and dinner jackets must all pass his review. Mr. Prince maintains that travelers, especially professionals to travel, want to feel a certain familiarity in the guest rooms. Consequently, some items are standard equipment in all InterContinental Hotels. Plumbing and bedding are uniform for all properties, but lamps and furniture must meet exact specifications, and rooms were planned so that they can be easily cleaned and maintained. But guest are unlikely to awaken in a room that could be Berlin or Bombay. African masks spark the walls of guest rooms in Nairobi. Indonesian wood carvings by self taught artist Ida Bagus Tilem, which grace the suites in Jakarta. Paintings by Jamaican school children add a special charm to the InterContinental in Kingston. And bamboo furniture against vivid African prints is a hallmark in Zaire, Liberia and Zambia. "In the lobbies and restaurants, there's more opportunity to dazzle," as explained by Mr. Prince. The public rooms of the hotels can be sleek and modern or opulent and old world, but every effort is made to reflect the local culture, often with a new twist. For example, in Pakistan, he used the country's intricately carved wooden screens as a base for modern, glass-topped tables. Whenever possible, InterContinental Hotels from 1961 to 1986 used not only native crafts, but locally manufactured furniture, a policy that had spurred new industries in several countries. Mr. Prince hired various local craftsmen to provide furniture for the Beirut, InterContinental Phoenicia Hotel. The Lebanese manufacturer chosen by Mr. Prince went on to become the largest producer of furniture in the Middle East. In Yugoslavia, beds and box spring mattresses were unheard of until Mr. Prince ripped up the springs from an old car seat and created a box spring that was copied by a Belgrade factory, creating many new jobs. Not all of Mr. Prince's designs have worked out as planned. He once obtained a solid redwood Tiki, weighing 20 tons, for an InterContinental Hotel in Tahiti. Mr. Prince thought it would make a striking addition to the hotel swimming pool, until he realized the weight of the Tiki would crack the concrete. The Tiki now stands outside the hotel as a local landmark.

CRAFTS AND CAUTIONS:

Mr. Prince shopped for many of the Hotels Decorative items himself during his tender at InterContinental Hotel Corporation. He would scour Shops, Bazaars and Art Galleries around the world. But despite his enthusiasm for native crafts, he has a word of "caution" for those travelers with a yen to enliven their living quarters with exotic objects d'art. "Guard against impulse," Mr. Prince warns. "In a strange country, everything looks glamorous. Remember that a giant wooden Garuda bird will never look the same in Brooklyn, as it does in Jakarta. Instead, shop for small items. You won't add a storage problem to a decorating one if you make a mistake. And, forget about conversation pieces. The conversation is apt to be bad."

The Second and Third Logo's reflects an International Hotel Company that would be locate where ever Pan-Am would travel. The Third generation InterContinental Hotel Logo from 1969 was more defined within an image with less area of print and it remains to this day the image of the InterContinental Hotel's world wide, with just a variance of a change with time. However, Charles Alvey's logo is known through the world and is one of the worlds leading Branding Trademark that has lasted for over 70 years.
