World's 1st Hotel to Grant Lord & Lady Titles

By January 20, 2013

Follow me on:

The new Hotel Indigo London Kensington Earl's Court is the world's first hotel to grant Lord and Lady titles to its staff as part of their employment package. Following a revival of the Victorian era in the recent TV phenomenon Downton Abbey, each member of staff has been given a Lord of the Manor title or Lady of the Manor title with a dedicated land plot and historic coat of arms.

Set in West London, Hotel Indigo London Kensington Earl's Court draws on its location among the Victorian terraces and this new initiative reverses the traditional societal roles from the era, which would have seen Lords and Ladies being waited on upstairs rather than behind the Reception desk, downstairs.

Hotel Indigo is InterContinental Hotels Group's (IHG) boutique brand and no two Hotel Indigo's are the same - each property's design and interior is inspired by its local surroundings. I've stayed at the Hotel Indigo Paddington and really like the brand. Free minibar and free wifi only endear them to me further. For more information visit www.facebook.com/hotelindigoeurope.
