Benois moves from Bahrain to oversee two Al Sondos hotels


(Dubai, March 2004): Experience on two continents and fluency in three languages are just some of the assets Alice Benois brings with her to the Al Sondos apartment hotels in Dubai, where she has been appointed executive housekeeper by management group, Le Meridien Hotels & Resorts.

A native of France, Benois will oversee operations at the 106-suite Al Sondos Suites by Le Meridien, located opposite Deira City Centre, as well as its sister property, the 144-unit Dar Al Sondos Hotel Apartments by Le Meridien in Bur Dubai.

Educated to degree level in France, she started working in the hotel industry at the Hotel Sofitel Port de Sevres, moving to the deluxe Hotel de Crillon as housekeeper supervisor for a three-year stint.

Following a further year in France as assistance executive housekeeper at a hotel in St Paul de Vence, Benois opted for a move overseas, transferring to Le Royal Meridien in Bahrain in a similar position.

Her Dubai posting has given Benois the opportunity to supervise the hotel operations of two properties, a role she is looking forward to with enthusiasm.

"Dubai is very much the hotspot of hotel development in the Middle East, and it is a very exciting time to be here," she said. “Our city apartment facilities are constantly busy, and it will be challenging to provide a service that meets the requirements of our multi-cultural clientele - but one that is already proving to be very fulfilling."

Located just five minutes’ from Dubai International Airport in the Deira shopping and business district, Al Sondos Suites by Le Meridien offers accommodation specifically targeted at the needs of GCC and long-stay visitors, with 106 studio, one- and two-bedrooms suites, all equipped with kitchen facilities as well as large-screen televisions, Internet access, inter-active games and 24-hour concierge and room service.

Its sister property, the 144-suite Dar Al Sondos Hotel Apartments by Le Meridien, is located in the busy Bur Dubai area of the city, providing a value-for-money alternative for executives and leisure travellers who seek accommodation in the heart of the action. The property was reflagged under the Le Meridien brand last year, following extensive refurbishment.
