Belgraves in London has announced the appointment of Andrew Coney as its new general manager.
The hotel, part of Thompson Hotels’ portfolio of boutique properties, has employed Coney from InterContinental London Westminster, where he was responsible for a team of 180.
Coney has an impressive 25 years experience in the UK hospitality industry, working for brands such as Le Meridien and De Vere, as well as InterContinental.
He began his career as deputy general manager of Mayfair’s Westbury Hotel, before going on to general manager positions at Slaley Hall in Northumberland, London’s Cavendish and Waldorf hotels. He also opened The Cedar Court Grand Hotel and Spa, York’s first five-star property.
Commenting on his new appointment, Coney said: “I’m very excited to be joining the fantastic team at Belgraves, the first transatlantic outpost for the innovative Thompson Hotels brand. This is such a prestigious property which encapsulates New York attitude in the heart of London’s Belgravia and I can’t think of a better place to begin the next chapter of my career.”
