Art’otel London Battersea names GM

The 164-bedroom hotel will feature ‘JOIA’ - a new skyline destination restaurant and bar, rooftop swimming pool, as well as a gym, spa, event facilities

Art’otel London Battersea Power Station has appointed Jennifer McCabe as general manager, with the task of overseeing the operations of the brand’s debut in the UK.

McCabe has 15 years of experience in premium hotel management and has developed at the likes of Le Monde in Edinburgh as well as The Firmdale Group’s Soho, Covent Garden, Knightsbridge, and Charlotte Street Hotels and most recently, Holmes Hotel London.

Art’otel said she is “renowned for her passionate leadership and innovative approach to guest services”, with her most recent position as general manager of Marylebone’s Holmes Hotel between 2019 and 2022 seeing her oversee a full strategic repositioning of the hotel into a luxury and lifestyle brand.

McCabe said: “Art’otel is one of Europe’s most unique and inspiring hotel brands, and I can’t wait to bring its creative spirit to London’s iconic Battersea Power Station.

“As a location that has inspired creativity for decades, Art’otel’s new vibrant energy will play a key part in the next chapter for Battersea Power Station. The hotel will be a space for endless creative inspiration and we can’t wait to welcome our first guests.”

The hotel, set to open later this year, will be located within Battersea Roof Gardens, a new building designed by Foster + Partners forming a part of Electric Boulevard, a collection of buildings comprising homes, offices and a new pedestrianised high street which sits to the south of the iconic Power Station.

The 164-bedroom hotel will feature ‘JOIA’ – a new skyline destination restaurant and bar, rooftop swimming pool, as well as a gym, spa, event facilities, a Grand Café and Art Gallery. Progress on the hotel’s construction is nearing completion, with the guest rooms, bar and restaurant currently being fitted out.
