Mike Bonner has been appointed director of sales and marketing for Rosewood London by Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. In this role, he will provide leadership and strategic direction to the hotel’s sales and marketing team.
Bonner joins Rosewood London with over 23 years of experience in the luxury hospitality industry. Most recently, he served as vice president of global marketing for One&Only Resorts at the global head office in Dubai. His experience also includes five years at the Maybourne Hotel Group as the director of marketing and the director of sales and marketing, and 10 years at Silversea Cruises, where he served as the general manager – UK and Ireland. Bonner has also held leadership roles at Cosmoair, an independent UK tour operator, and Celebrity Cruises.
Last month, Rosewood London named Michael Bonsor managing director. He has acted as the hotel manager since it opened in 2013. In that time, the hotel won multiple awards, including the Conde Nast Traveler’s “Readers’ Choice Awards” and “Gold List.” Bonsor has spent time with Four Seasons New York and Claridge’s.
Additionally, the hotel’s bar, Scarfes Bar, debuted a new cocktail menu inspired by caricaturist Gerald Scarfe. The 15 new drinks capture the essence of James Bond, Charlie Chaplin, Harry Potter, Mary Poppins, and more. The bar manager and head bartender researched ingredients for eight months to create the imaginative menu.
Rosewood Hotels & Resorts manages 18 properties in 11 countries, with 18 new hotels under development. The Rosewood collection includes The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel in New York, Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas and Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris, and Rosewood Beijing.
