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."

Hotel Group Meetings: Spirit of Innovation

Naturally, the Hotel Group Meeting business has been rocked during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the effects may be felt for years to come. But according to planners, there is pent-up demand for hotels to resume this area of their business and savvy hoteliers are being exceptionally creative in making that possible. The key is successfully implementing all recommended safety guidelines. For example, in addition to social and physical distancing, some planners are utilizing assigned seating as a way to keep people from using multiple seats and tables throughout an event. Some planners have also initiated a color-coded bracelet system that indicates the wearer's confidence level about being physically approached. Hybrid meetings are also increasingly popular, where some attendees join in person and others are looped in virtually. Other hotels have instituted a "bubble" approach, dedicating an entire wing to smaller groups, essentially walling them off from any health risks outside their area. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to address these concerns so that the group meeting business can safely resume.
