APPOINTMENTS: Francesco Sardelli is the new GM of St. James’s Hotel & Club Mayfair

St. James’s Hotel & Club Mayfair in London, part of Althoff Collection, named Francesco Sardelli as general manager. Originally from Puglia, Sardelli moved to London in I989 where he started out as a room service waiter at Grosvenor House. With 30 years’ experience in the luxury hospitality industry, he worked his way up to general manager, most recently at The Kensington Hotel-Doyle Collection. He has also held management roles at other top London hotels including The Baglioni, Brown’s Hotel and The Stafford.

“I am delighted to be joining St. James’s Hotel & Club, a hotel steeped in history and with so much potential for further evolution,” Sardelli said. “There is exceptional dining at Michelin starred Seven Park Place by William Drabble, elegant design and spacious rooms and suites. The location too is exceptional, being in a quiet cul-de-sac but so close to Green Park and the glamour of Mayfair.’
