Welcome Anthony Lee, new General Manager at The May Fair 5  

Posted in Behind the scenes, General Manager posts

We would like to extend a huge welcome to Anthony Lee, new General Manager at The May Fair – welcome Anthony! Anthony joins us from one Mayfair hotel to another – he was at the five star The Connaught hotel for over 30 years where he was General Manager since 2002. Anthony has a passion for service and since he’s started, he’s been busy meeting everyone and getting to know his new home.

Anthony Lee welcome to our London hotelWe managed to steal a few minutes of his time to find out more about one of the most experienced leaders in the hospitality industry:

– So Anthony, what’s your essential travel item?  

Boringly my phone and an extra battery!  Hotels rarely have enough plug sockets so I carry 2 blackberries, a laptop and a UK 6-way lightweight extension – it saves my life.  There should always be balance though – I also carry a champagne stopper so that if I am fortunate to be presented with a bottle of champagne and cannot finish it I can at least carry on the following day. 

– What do you always eat/drink from the mini bar when you stay in a hotel?  

I  am a chocolate addict, terrible but I love it! I drink mainly water but on the exceptional evening when I enjoy a nice dinner and a good movie I have been known to enjoy a good bottle of Burgundy.

– What’s the best thing about The May Fair?  

Way too much to choose from! One thing I can tell you…it’s going to be fun!

Thanks Anthony, we hope you are settling in to your new home.  Click here to read Anthony Lee’s official welcome to all our guests or find out more about our Mayfair hotel.

    Hi Anthony, All the best to the new appointment at The May Fair. I would like to invite your property to present at our annual tourism event in next March. It would be perfect if you could drop me an email with your new contacts at May Fair to further the idea.
