Mr Matthew Dixon has been appointed General Manager of the Corinthia Hotel in London.

 Originally Savoy trained, Matthew gained a sound knowledge of hotel marketing and operations at group level and at the Claridges Hotel London. In his early career he gained deluxe international experience in various senior executive roles with Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong and Manila. He then spent a successful period with Rocco Forte hotels as general manager of the Hotel de Russie Rome and general manager of the Brown’s Hotel London.

Shortly after the opening of the Grove, a hotel leisure and golf complex in the UK, Matthew joined the operation as general manager and until recently developed and operated this 5-Star international hotel destination as one of the world’s most unique and inspirational hotel conference and golf centres.

Matthew is a graduate of Cornell University, Westminster College London and the University of Pau in France. He is a member of the Institute of Hospitality and speaks Italian, French and Swedish. He will be reporting directly to CHI Hotels & Resorts CEO & Managing Director Tony Potter and will commence his duties on the 21st of September 2009.

The Corinthia Hotel London is presently being totally transformed from the original Metropole building on Northumberland Avenue, together with the adjoining 10, Whitehall Place.

 The property was acquired from the Crown Estate last year by a consortium led by Corinthia Hotels and who are now transforming what was the original hotel from the 1880s and subsequently part of the Ministry of Defence, into one of the capital’s most luxury hotels with room sizing averaging 45 square metres.

Accommodation will include multi-level penthouse suites and terraces affording spectacular views of the river Thames, Trafalgar Square and Whitehall.

The adjoining 10 Whitehall Place property is being redeveloped to include a 2,500 square metre luxury Spa as well as a suite of 12 exclusive residences ranging from 250 square metres up to over 1,000 square metres.

The property, scheduled to open late 2010, will feature 300 rooms and suites, three restaurants, a large central courtyard foyer, tea lounge, destination bar, a ballroom, conference and boardroom facilities and Spa complex.
