Hilton London Metropole names new commercial director

LONDON, May 19, 2024

Hilton London Metropole has announced the appointment of Nancy Daccache as its new commercial director. 
With an impressive background in hospitality sector spanning over 15 years, including nine years of dedicated service within the Hilton family in the UAE, Nancy brings a wealth of experience to her new role. 
She will bring her experience of the GCC domestic travel market from her previous positions as the cluster commercial director at Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island, The WB Abu Dhabi, Curio Collection by Hilton, and DoubleTree by Hilton Abu Dhabi Yas Island Residences, along with her recent role as senior regional revenue manager for several hotels in the Arabian Peninsula and Türkiye, showcasing her exceptional skills and deep understanding of the industry. 
With the vast majority of GCC travellers continuing to stay primarily in London according to 2023 data from Visit Britain, Hilton London Metropole recently made extensive property changes to cater for GCC travellers, and in hiring Nancy, the property will also gain valuable Mena market insights and will continue to support the needs of GCC guests and extended travelling groups from the region. 
With an extensive multi-million-pound renovation completed in June 2023, the property offers multiple, flexible suite and room configurations offering larger than London average spaces which cater for larger families and multi-generational groups, extensive halal food and beverage options and a prayer room. 
Hilton London Metropole is also close to well-known attractions, including the Tower of London, Kensington Palace, Madame Tussauds London, Portobello Road Market, Marble Arch, and Hyde Park, as well as luxury retail stores and restaurants.
Welcoming her into the fold, Bill Fisher, general manager, Hilton London Metropole, said: "Nancy’s expertise within the GCC as well as her leadership qualities make her a valuable addition to the Hilton London Metropole team. The Middle East is a significant market for us, and I am confident that her contributions will further elevate the success of our hotel."
Hilton London Metropole blends all the elements of a boutique set up with the benefits of a large-scale property including 24/7 room service and a state-of-the-art fitness centre. 
Located in central London, the property has 3 King 1 Bedroom Deluxe Suites, 13 King 1 Bedroom Executive Suite, four Two Bedroom Family Suites, and one Three Bedroom Penthouse that offers London skyline views. 
On her new role, Daccache said: "As the commercial director for Hilton London Metropole, I am excited to bring my extensive knowledge of the GCC and continue to enhance the already outstanding offer which caters to the discerning Middle Eastern traveller."
"Whatever families and couples are looking for in London this year, we can assist by providing a home away from home," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
