Park Regis Birmingham has appointed Tom Biddle as executive chef to oversee the hotel's food and beverage offerings.
The 253-bedroom hotel, which has been pitched at the four-star market, is expected to open in late March. It will feature the 1565 restaurant on the fourth floor and a pan-Asian rooftop restaurant and bar on the 16th floor.
The hotel's executive lounge will also offer food and drink, and the conference and meeting spaces will have banqueting options for up to 160 guests.
Biddle, who trained at University College Birmingham, has held a number of executive and head chef positions across the UK.
His most recent role was at Tudor Park Marriott in Kent, where he became the group's youngest ever head chef at the age of 25.
He said: "This is the first Park Regis hotel in the northern hemisphere and I'm looking forward to starting with a new team, new kitchens and new equipment. The 1565 restaurant has a modern, contemporary theme and will feature signature dishes, grills and classics, as well as traditional dishes from the Midlands area. It has a seasonal menu and we are working with local suppliers to source fresh produce and ingredients."
The hotel will become the 17th Park Regis globally, joining properties in Sydney, Singapore and Dubai. It will be operated by 5Ways Hospitality.
