Govert Deketh has taken the helm of London Marriott Hotel County Hall just prior to the completion of its major refurbishment and relaunch.
The 206 room London hotel recently re-opened and has been transformed during a year-long extensive renovation programme which has combined the historic beauty of the building and the very best in contemporary hotel design.
Deketh joins London Marriott County Hall from a two year period as general manager of the Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel & Country Club where he oversaw increases in both RevPAR and staff engagement.
Govert graduated with degree in hotel management from Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne in Switzerland and 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.”
