Born in Austria, Spatt studied International Hotel Management at MODUL University before joining Astron in Vienna as front office manager before becoming general manager Astron Suite Hotels – Vienna and Atterseehaus in 1997. Spatt subsequently joined NH Hotel Group in 2003 as GM for NH Vienna Airport. In 2011, he accepted his current GM position at Nhow Berlin, Europe’s first music hotel.
NH Hotel Group said his experience with Nhow hotels, his “passion for the hospitality industry, a keen creative eye and an efficient work ethic” were the key factors in his appointment.
Spatt said: “Having been involved with the Nhow brand from its very beginning, I am delighted to be able to bring the concept to London, a city whose creative energy truly matches the hotel. With the project having been in development for a while, it’s great to see it come to life and I look forward to revealing it to the public.”
The 190-room hotel under NH Hotel Group’s design and lifestyle brand, is set to open in September and is located between the City, Islington and Shoreditch.
