City Inn hires Patrick O'Connell as Tower of London GM

Independent hotel group City Inn has appointed Patrick O'Connell as the general manager of its newest property, the 583-bedroom Tower of London hotel, which is due to open in December.

O'Connell joins from the Marylebone hotel in London where he oversaw a £22m refurbishment programme and a subsequent rebrand.

He has more than 17 years' experience in the hotel industry including managing a series of luxury 4- and 5-star hotels across the UK and Ireland.

City Inn Tower of London is the hotel group's seventh hotel and its second in the capital. Its other hotels are located in London Westminster, Birmingham, Bristol, Glasgow, Leeds and Manchester.

City Inn chief executive David Orr commented: "While the hotel is one of the largest ever built in central London, it will integrate locally with the area, as with our Westminster hotel, and play its role as a supporter to the amenity and business purpose of the City of London."
