François-Xavier Schoeffer

Appointed General Manager
At Hotel Lutetia in Paris, France

François-Xavier Schoeffer

The Set Hotels has announced the appointment of François-Xavier Schoeffer as General Manager of the Hotel Lutetia, having previously held the role of Hotel Manager at London's Hotel Café Royal.

Over the past six years of his successful tenure in London, François significantly contributed to Hotel Café Royal's positioning as one of the leading hotels in London. He possesses a wealth of experience in delivering luxury service standards and a truly refined guest experience that is reflected in the hotel's continued success.

He began his career at the Hotel Martinez in Cannes over twenty years ago, subsequently working in several luxury hotels across Europe before joining Hotel Lutetia back in 2008 as Hotel Manager.

It's, therefore, a true comeback to the 'Rive Gauche' for François-Xavier Schoeffer and a warm welcome back to the iconic Paris hotel.
