When you want to check out of the world, you need to check into France's Miramar La Cigale. We speak with the Hotel's General Manager, Sergio Tosati about how the hospitality industry has evolved to meet the new standards of luxury...

How did you become the general manager of the hotel? 

The great opportunity to run this hotel was offered to me at the reopening in 2015. My rich experiences in Paris and Chantilly allowed me to understand the new management of the hotel after a major renovation on the structure. The most exciting aspect of the Miramar’s leadership is the human being. My employees are at the center of my attention as well as our customers.

What are guests looking for in your hotel?
