Having recently completed a £5.2m guest room refurbishment, Hilton London Islington has appointed Stefanie Hardie as general manager.

After a decade of working in Hilton Hotels & Resorts across the globe, and for the past five years as director of business development at Lonton Hilton on Park Lane, Stefanie is set to bring a wealth of experience to this new position.

During her last four commercial roles as director of business development at Hilton, Stefanie has gained valuable insight into the diverse cultures and business practises in the upscale full service market, namely in London and in the Middle East and Asia.

This, together with her experience with Marriott Hotels and as a graduate trainee manager at Edinburgh’s Royal Scot Hotel, has allowed Stefanie to work within a vast array of sectors, from front office to entertainent and travel trade markets.

“I’m delighted to join Hilton London Islington at such an exciting time in the hotel’s development,” says Stephanie. “Our recent £5.2m guest room refurbishment has transformed the property, and we look forward to delivering a new and improved guest experience, leading the way for upscale accommodation in Islington and the surrounding areas.”
