InterContinental Dublin Plans New Innovations As It Appoints New General Manager
The five-star InterContinental Dublin has appointed a new general manager, Nicky Logue, and is planning a number of innovations to the hotel over the coming months.
Logue, who was previously the general manager at the Gibson Hotel, and before that for the Killiney Hotel, was voted the Irish Hospitality Institute General Manager Of The Year 2006.
Discussing his new position, Logue said: "I’m delighted to be taking up the reigns of InterContinental Dublin. With visitor numbers to Ireland predicted to continue to grow into 2017 it’s an exciting time to work in the industry. This hotel has seen strong performance this year and we are well positioned for the future locally and internationally. We are proud of our €5 million refurbishment programme which will include all 197 guestrooms and suites (set to complete by 2017), Seasons Restaurant, Lobby Lounge as well as the two ballrooms and all meeting and event space.
"Undoubtedly our international reputation and landmark location - right on the doorstep of the city’s biggest events venues - has further helped to establish InterContinental Dublin’s position in the marketplace as one of the most stylish and memorable venues, whatever your occasion. We were thrilled to be awarded ‘Overall Best Business Hotel 2016’ at this year’s annual National Hospitality Awards."
Speaking about planned innovations for the hotel, he added: "I’m looking to take food and beverage to the next level, especially in Seasons Restaurant. One other key area that I will be focusing on is to challenge the perception that excellent quality and service is for the privileged few and to further market ourselves in what we do best; offering the highest quality at an attractive price point."
