It’s been a big year for hotel openings in Paris (ahem, the Ritz!) and 2017 will be exciting as well—with the highly anticipated reopening of the Hotel de Crillon after a years-long restoration. A landmark on the Place de la Concorde in Paris since 1758, the hotel is managed by Rosewood Hotels and Resorts.

News from the French capital: Marc-Olivier Raffray has been tapped as General Manager of the Hotel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel. An industry veteran, Raffray has worked with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts for the last 12 years. Most recently, he was appointed GM of the Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahi in March 2016. Previously, he was GM at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues in Geneva.

Rafferty started with Four Seasons as the Food & Beverage Manager at the George V in Paris. Taking the helm at the luxury hotel on the Place de la Concorde is a homecoming, as Rafferty began his career in the City of Light.
