The Capital in London has appointed Solomon Khaddour as general manager.
Khaddour joins the luxury boutique in Knightsbridge from 11 Cadogan Gardens, part of Iconic Luxury Hotels, where he had been since 2012.
Speaking on his appointment, he said he was ‘truly honoured’ to be taking up the position of GM at the 49-bedroom hotel and apartments, which are owned and operated as the flagship property for Warwick Hotels & Resorts.
He will oversee both The Capital hotel and The Capital Townhouse Hotel, formerly The Levin as part of his new role.
Khaddour adds: “I am delighted to be joining The Warwick hotels and resorts as the general manager for The Capital Hotel and The Capital Townhouse Hotel in Knightsbridge, London; the hotels are prestigious establishments and have a long tradition of providing luxury service and hospitality for all guests. I am truly honoured, and I very much look forward to continue enhancing The Capital Hotel positioning in the London market to be one of the finest luxury hotels in the capital.”
Khaddour is a graduate of Swiss Hotel Management Les Roches Marbella. In 2002 he joined Red Carnation Hotels as a management trainee and four years later he moved to work for The Cadogan Hotel on Sloane Street as Operations Director.
Once in place at 11 Cadogan Gardens, he implemented a comprehensive refurbishment project and orchestrated renovation works to overhaul all of the rooms, the suites and the restaurant.
Warwick Hotels & Resorts currently operates over 50 hotels and resorts with over 6,000 rooms worldwide.
In February it was revealed that executive chef Adam Simmonds had left his position at The Capital after eight months.
