General Manager of Hotel Babylon, Rebecca is in her mid-thirties and dresses immaculately, with particular loves for Prada and Jimmy Choo.
She has wanted to run a five-star hotel since walking past one for the first time on a shopping trip to London as a child. All her life has been spent on this career path and she's ambitious to the degree that she can't really focus on anything else. Least of all the eventual collapse of her marriage.
Rebecca's only concern is her hotel and she will always, always put the guest first... well, as long as profit margins are secure!
