In his new role, he will be responsible for all of the recently refurbished hotel’s operations, including the Michelin-starred Alyn Williams at The Westbury, Polo Bar and Japanese eatery, Tsukiji Sushi.
According to the hotel group he brings an “impressive wealth of experience” and “extensive knowledge of the luxury hospitality industry with him”, including four years as general manager at Hotel Bristol, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Warsaw.
Henning said: “I’m delighted to be back in London and managing The Westbury Mayfair, which arguably has the best hotel location in London. It is a privilege as well as a great opportunity for us to care for our guests in this glamourous and historic locale.
“With its prime location on Bond Street, in the heart of Mayfair’s fashion and arts district, The Westbury Mayfair is the only hotel to occupy such a prized address. It shares its illustrious position with prestigious boutiques, arts institutions and city landmarks, offering an ideal base from which to explore the individuality and authentic personality of the neighbourhood.”
