About the Parisi Hotels York Team

Introduction from the owners, Maria and Sophie:

Our small and fabulous team genuinely care about our guests getting the most from their time in York and are central to the hotel's success.

As you will see they have a wide range of interests so feel free to ask any member of staff for their recommendations on what to see and do while you are with us.

Hotel Manager  


Hannah at the Parisi Hotel York

Hannah has progressed through the business, learning everything there is to know here by starting as a Hotel Assistant, completely new to the industry, and being rapidly promoted to being our lovely Hotel Manager.

She loves looking after our guests, making their trips as special as she can and supporting the team to help our guests enjoy their stays to the full.

Outside of work Hannah keeps busy and active, fitting in yoga, boxing and running along with walking her dog.

Like everyone here she has developed a real passion for hospitality which permeates through everything she does.


Our managers:  



Stephen has joined us after gaining much customer facing and management experience in a retail environment, following his studies in Philosophy and Theology at the York St John University. He loves interacting with our guests making sure they have everything they need to enjoy their stay. He has a passion for York's history and takes part in Medieval reenactments when he has the chance. He keeps fit by playing football and enjoys quizzing in his spare time. In the future he hopes to own an animal rescue sanctuary and guest house/farm on the South coast of England. Fun fact: Stephen appeared on Blue Peter when he was 8 years old.




Mica has a wealth of experience in managing luxurious places to stay and loves looking after our guests and getting things organised for them and around the hotel. Mica grew up north of York and has been a regular visitor to the city throughout her life. She is passionate about history and loves exploring different places to find out the stories behind them, so York is perfect for her. Mica is very creative with a great eye for art and design. She also has a keen interest in food and drink and loves getting out into the countryside for long walks with the family dog whenever possible.



Nathan has just recently joined us from St. Catharines in Ontario, Canada and is loving learning everything there is to know about the boutique hotel industry with us. He has travelled to many new places and enjoys weaving his way into local life. He loves York for its historical beauty and the romantic stories of its dramatic past. He's always looking for ways to help our guests to make the most of their stay and is hoping to develop a longterm career in the hospitality industry. He is a fan of IPA and is enjoying discovering the many ales of York and England. One of Nathan's ambitions is to write a book one day.



The Day Team :



Rachael has joined the team for her gap year between her first degree in English and a masters in Medieval Studies at the University of Cambridge. She grew up in York and loves meeting lots of different people and enjoys the variety of the work at the hotel, with no two days being the same. She loves York's history and feels privileged to live in a city with so many museums and such a rich archaeological heritage. In her spare time, Rachael loves the outdoors, hiking and cycling and goes for a run most mornings.

Julius loves TV shows and movies as well as keeping up with new music. He is also sporty, loving a good game of football. He is passionate about the hospitality industry and enjoys that this role gives him a wide experience of many different aspects of a hotel. He hopes to continue building his career and progressing into general management.

The owners




Sophie at the Parisi Hotel York

Sophie got started in hospitality straight away following the completion of her degree in Business Management at UEA in Norwich. She moved back to her home town of York and soaked up nearly a decade of experience refurbishing and relaunching a luxurious small hotel in the city centre, renovating listed properties and planning various other hospitality ventures. Having travelled around various corners of the world and stayed in some of the best and some of the worst hotels, she loves finding (and creating) special places to stay.



Maria at the Parisi Hotel York

Maria (or Dr Scott) had a childhood dream to one day run a bed and breakfast, but was waylaid at school by an enjoyment of science and ended up completing a PhD in biochemistry before realising she didn’t want to spend the rest of her life in a lab. While trying to work out what would come next she worked alongside Sophie on the big hotel relaunch that she had been working on and discovered a real passion for looking after guests. She went on to hone her skills as a guide and host at a luxurious Argentinian horse-riding ranch and then a manager at a 5-star hotel on an island in Scotland.
