Following a six-month closure at the start of the 2019 for a renovation, luxury London hotel, One Aldwych reopened, firing from all cylinders and showing off its shiny new look.
The hotel relaunched in June last year after a refurbishment that saw its bedrooms, dining room and bar redesigned with a ‘bold’ new look. In the driving seat was managing director Simon Hirst, the hotel’s original GM who returned in 2017 as managing director after four years at Raffles Hotel Singapore, and general manager, Janine Marshall.
Janine has been with One Aldwych since 2007, when she took up the position of finance director, moving from Jumeriah Group. Almost 12 years later and she was given the chance to step into the role of general manager at the luxury London hotel, marking her first GM’s post during her career.
Taking the helm of a hotel as it underwent one of the biggest transformations since its launch was quite the task for the novice manager, but Janine has proven to have the acute business skills and attention to detail to ensure the buzz continued long after the builders went home.
