100 Queen’s Gate Hotel names Federico Ciampi as GM

The hotel features 228-rooms with 11 suites named after iconic British residents of Kensington

100 Queen’s Gate Hotel London, Curio Collection by Hilton, based in South Kensington and owned and operated by Crimson Hotels, has announced the appointment of Federico Ciampi as general manager.

It said Ciampi will take over management of the “historic” hotel and oversee business strategies to promote the hotel’s growth as the hospitality industry begins to regain momentum, following the pandemic.

Joining from The Mayfair Townhouse, Ciampi has over 10 years’ experience as a general manager of luxury hotels across the world and over 20 years’ experience in the industry.

Crimson said his “proficiency” as a general manager can be attributed to his “understanding of hotel management in a variety of contexts, from independent, boutique properties to luxury hotels in the Middle East”.

It added Ciampi’s “dedication and expertise in the field” is evident with the various awards he, and his previous hotels, has been presented with, including the ‘Rising Star Manager of the Year’ award.

100 Queen’s Gate Hotel – London, Curio Collection by Hilton, features 228-rooms with 11 suites named after iconic British residents of Kensington such as Dame Agatha Christie and Alfred Hitchcock.

In the heart of the borough and in close proximity to attractions such as the Natural History Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum, the hotel boasts three outlets, the W/A Kensington restaurant, the Botanica tearoom and ESQ, a parlour bar drawing its inspiration from the Victorian era.

Stephanie Gosling, group commercial director at Crimson Hotels Group, said: “It’s an absolute pleasure to have Federico on board with us at 100 Queen’s Gate. We’re very excited to see his cumulative experience come to life with us and bring a strong revival to the hotel after the disruption of the pandemic.”

Ciampi added: “I am so pleased to be joining 100 Queen’s Gate Hotel, to lead such a vibrant and enthusiastic team. Following a challenging period for hospitality, I’m thrilled to be working with such an esteemed hotel to uphold its outstanding reputation as the tourism industry begins to recover this year.

“I feel passionately about creating memorable experiences for guests to fall in love with and I feel so proud to be playing a pivotal role in leading the hotel, and its remarkable team, into the next chapter.”
