Matthew Taylor (right) joins the 60-bedroom property, located in an Edwin Lutyens building in King Street, as executive chef, along with Matt Miller (left) as sales manager and Dulce Marques as operations manager.
Taylor will be returning to his roots in fine British dining as he heads up the kitchen for the hotel's restaurant sixth-floor Honey, which will have "a strong nod to the provenance of the north". He has worked in the industry for 14 years, including spells at Chester Racecourse and with De Vere Hotels.
Miller joins Hotel Gotham from Springbank Flowers, where as sales director for nearly two years he worked on high profile events including the Labour and Conservative party conferences, as well as functions as Blenheim Palace, Fortnum & Mason, and the Etihad Stadium. He previously worked in sales roles for Millennium & Copthorne Hotels and the Midland hotel, Manchester.
Marques arrives at Hotel Gotham from the Dormy House hotel in Broadway, Worcestershire. She previously worked with Jeff Ward, managing director of Gotham, at Cannizaro House in London.
Ward said that the hotel had been "inundated" from a high calibre of candidates. "We are assembling a formidable team of staff, from some of the greatest hotels in the North west, and a few from very special places around the UK."
Hotel Gotham, once home to the headquarters of Midland Bank, opens on 7 April, with room rates from £150. It has been developed by the Marshall Construction Group in conjunction with the owners, Bespoke Hotels, and features five inner suites, each with their own garden, and a prohibition-style bar on the seventh floor.
