The luxury hotel has welcomed Benjamin Hofer as its new F&B director, who joins with a wealth of experience, including working for Maybourne Hotel Group as restaurant director, where, together with the team and Chef Simon Rogan, he opened the critically acclaimed and Michelin-starred Fera at Claridge’s.
Hendrik Hübner is the hotel’s new front of house manager, joining from Claridge’s, where he worked for five and a half years in roles including front office manager and reception manager.
Hotel Café Royal’s new hotel manager is François-Xavier Schoeffer, after he was promoted from director of operations at the hotel, a role he has been in since 2013.
Speaking about the new appointments, Hotel Café Royal’s managing director Thomas Kochs said: “Our people are the most valuable asset we have in the hotel and I wholeheartedly believe that the team is the foundation on which future developments at Hotel Café Royal are built. I am so happy to welcome these two key members to the team and for François to take the next step in his career.
