The Westbury Mayfair, a Luxury Collection Hotel, has announced the appointment of Andrew Henning as general manager.
Henning joins the five-star hotel from the United Arab Emirates where he successfully opened the St. Regis Dubai, Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club.
In his new role, he will be responsible for all of the recently refurbished hotel’s operations, including an inventory of suites, the Michelin-starred Alyn Williams at the Westbury, the iconic award-winning Polo Bar and contemporary Japanese eatery, Tsukiji Sushi.
He brings extensive knowledge of the luxury hospitality industry with him, including four years as general manager at Hotel Bristol, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Warsaw.
The arrival comes following the recent completion of an extensive renovation of the hotel’s 225 bedrooms, where the allocation of luxury suites now stands at 63.
Built in an era when American glamour prevailed, the hotel is styled from white Portland stone, dark marble and architectural brass detailing that renders it both notable and unique in character.
On his new position, Henning said: “I’m delighted to be back in London and managing the Westbury Mayfair, which arguably has the best hotel location in London.
“It is a privilege as well as a great opportunity for us to care for our guests in this glamourous and historic locale.
“With its prime location on Bond Street, in the heart of Mayfair’s fashion and arts district, the Westbury Mayfair is the only hotel to occupy such a prized address.
“It shares its illustrious position with prestigious boutiques, arts institutions and city landmarks, offering an ideal base from which to explore the individuality and authentic personality of the neighbourhood.”
