EP were delighted to interview James Oliver who is the new GM of the Dilly to hear how this iconic hotel is to be re-imagined and its story retold.
James and his team believe that The Dilly has a unique and colourful past which is to be celebrated. It was part of London’s Edwardian society and it embraced diversity throughout the 20th century; it also has a special place the history of the area and Piccadilly in particular.
