Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris Appoints Christophe Thomas as General Manager

A New Inspiration for Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris

France, Paris, Île-de-France. July 29, 2020

Le Royal Monceau - Raffles Paris is pleased to introduce its new General Manager, Christophe Thomas.

Two weeks following Thomas's arrival, the Parisian Palace, much like the rest of the entire country, put its activities on pause. On June 12, the hotel reopened the doors and Thomas officially unveiled its Secret Garden terrace.

Prior to his return to France, Thomas cultivated an extensive international career spanning from Europe to South America and throughout the Caribbean before settling in the United States for the past 20 years. This global journey began at the Strasbourg Hospitality School, where upon earning his bachelor's degree, Thomas wanted to perpetuate the French "art de recevoir" and excellence around the world.

As a result of his determination and expertise, Thomas soon became General Manager of several luxury properties across the United States. This included spearheading the repositioning of the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, an iconic "The Luxury Collection" hotel.

In 2016, Thomas joined the SLS Hotel Beverly Hills team to helm the property's comprehensive renovation and opening of Somni restaurant. In 2019, Somni was awarded two Michelin stars, positioning the restaurant among the best in Southern California. Soon after, the Philippe Starck designed SLS Hotel was recognized as the best hotel in the world by international press, a good omen for Thomas' upcoming adventures with the iconic Le Royal Monceau - Raffles Paris, decorated by the same designer.

Today, the Raffles group assigns its Parisian Palace under the care of Mr. Thomas. "It is a challenge that I intend to take up with passion and sincerity alongside my teams," said Christophe Thomas. "I wish to highlight Le Royal Monceau - Raffles Paris within the French capital with energy, authenticity and elegance, and offer our guests a highly personalized service embedded with constant artistic effervescence of creation, culture and wanderlust."

Eco-Friendly Practices: Now More Than Ever

One theory about the pandemic states that future viruses are more likely to originate and flourish due to global warming. If true, the urgency to accelerate the adoption of eco-friendly practices is greater than ever. Of course, there are many other reasons to create a sustainable operation, including reduced utility costs, savings on operational costs, healthier and happier guests and employees, and positive publicity, marketing and community goodwill. Many hotels are introducing innovative programs into their operations - from recycling bins in guest rooms to starting a roof top garden. Other hotels are using eco-friendly cleaning products, reusing towels and sheets, sourcing locally grown food, supporting the use of electric vehicles, and permitting guests to refill their reusable water bottles with clean, filtered water. Finally, some hotels are encouraging guests to get involved by making it possible for them to participate in local community clean-up projects. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
