Hilton Manager Moves On

HOTELIER John McLaughlin is set to take the helm at Hilton Manchester Deansgate, following the move of current General Manager Bernadette Gilligan to Hilton London Kensington - one of the Capital’s largest upscale Hilton hotels.  

McLaughlin brings with him more than 15 years of management experience, and joins the flagship Manchester hotel from his current base at Hilton Reading which he has managed for almost two years.

Following its opening in 2006 Hilton Manchester Deansgate, which is set within the first 23 floors of the stunning Beetham Tower, quickly became established as a leading hotel in the city under the leadership of Gilligan.

With views from ‘Cloud 23’ the signature cocktail bar, chic restaurant and new addition ‘Spa 303’– the hotel provides a destination for Manchester residents and visitors to the city.

John McLaughlin, said, “I am thrilled to be moving to Manchester and taking the helm of the iconic Hilton Manchester Deansgate.  I look forward to bringing my expertise and creativity to the hotel and continuing its great reputation in the city.”

Bernadette Gilligan, said, “Having opened Hilton Manchester Deansgate over six years ago I am sad to be leaving the city and the team here at the hotel. I am excited about the new challenges ahead at Hilton London Kensington and I look forward to extending my experience to the London hotel scene, and bringing a warm Northern welcome to the Capital.”
