Warren Miller joined some of the hospitality’s most illustrious names when he was announced as a Master Innholder Scholar just as 2017 kicked off, a title he thoroughly deserved. Originating from South Africa, Miller started his career in luxury hospitality in London at The Capital, as executive manager, looking after The Levin and The Capital owned by legendary hotelier David Levin. He stayed here for five years, before roles at The Lanesborough and The Wellesley beckoned, rounding off almost ten years in the five-star sector in the capital. In September 205, he jumped over to sister hotel of The Wellesley, Ten Manchester Street in Marylebone, where he took over as general manager.
Ten Manchester Street is home to 44 bedrooms, a popular cigar lounge famous for its extensive range of Cuban cigars, and a DIecl restaurant, which recently underwent a refurbishment to help open it up to new custom.
Miller applied for the St Julian’s Scholarship through The Master Innholders in 2016 and was awarded a scholarship to attend the General Managers Program at Cornell University in January 2017. He is heavily involved in the Institute of Hospitality and was voted in as Vice-Chair of the London branch in April 2016. During his time at The Wellesley, Miller was approached by the owner of the hotel to head up the group’s next project, The Langley – a five-star luxury country house hotel and spa opening in 2018. Miller has been working on the project over the last two years and continued to do so around his responsibilities at Ten Manchester Street.
