The award wins follow Guillaume Marly’s appointment as General Manager in February 2015. Guillaume’s career in hospitality started 20 years ago, with previous roles at some of London’s top hotels including The Ritz, The Dorchester and Claridge’s. One of his most notable achievements was the launch of Chiltern Firehouse in 2013, where he worked alongside André Balazs to manage one of the most well-known launches in Europe’s hospitality scene in the last 10 years.
Since its opening in June 2013, ME London is still regarded as one of the capital’s top luxury lifestyle hotels. Guillaume’s influence and ambitions will continue to elevate the property’s position within the hospitality market.
