A new general manager has come on board to take the helm at London Marriott Hotel County Hall just a month after the hotel’s relaunch.
Govert Deketh has joined the 206-bedroom hotel after it relaunched in November following a year-long renovation programme that saw the property given a modern and contemporary new feel.
Deketh joins London Marriott County Hall from two years at Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel and Country Club where we was GM for two years and oversaw increases in RevPAR and staff engagement.
He first joined the Marriott group in 1996 as director of food and beverage at Portsmouth Marriott.
“I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead the London Marriott County Hall at such an exciting moment in the hotel’s history,” said Govert.
“This grand dame of British hotels has been lovingly restored and absolutely epitomises classic British style, energy and modernity. It is now my mission and pleasure to relaunch London Marriott County Hall to the world, explaining our central prime location with the best views over London, mouth-watering Gillray’s Steakhouse Restaurant and Bar, sleekly efficient modernised new meeting spaces and superb staff.”
