Several properties of Corinthia Hotels International have made announcements.
The first, Corinthia Hotel London has appointed London hotelier Thomas Kochs as its managing director. Kochs started on May 22, and his responsibilities include managing Corinthia hotel’s flagship property, which opened its doors on Whitehall Place in 2011.
Kochs joins the 294-room Corinthia London from the 160-bedroom Hotel Café Royal, London where he held the same title for just over a year. Prior to the Hotel Café Royal, London, Kochs was the face of Claridge’s, where he was general manager from 2010 through 2015. He was originally employed with the Maybourne Hotel Group in 2005 and rose through the ranks, proving himself to be an inspired leader, operating in key roles across the portfolio of The Berkeley, The Connaught and then Claridge’s.
Corinthia London additionally has two international restaurants, a cocktail bar and the UK’s award-winning ESPA Life at Corinthia spa.
