Are you planning a trip to Liverpool? Whether you’re here for the footie, the Beatles, the ferry ride across the Mersey or just a little Scouse bonus, Liverpool is a mini-break peach. The fact that it has more museums and galleries than any other UK city outside London doesn’t hurt either.And when it comes to hotels, Liverpool caters to fans of all kinds, and budgets. Here are the top ten hotels in Liverpool.
Top Ten Liverpool Accommodation
1.30 James Street ⭐⭐⭐
Liverpool has its own role in the history of the Titanic: although the unlucky liner never docked here, its company, White Star Lines, was based in James Street.Therefore, the ship’s theme still prevails in the 64-room luxury hotel, and like the blockbuster of the same names, it’s a bit corny but a lot of fun. In the basement, you’ll find a spa, while the Carpathia Champagne bar is on the rooftop, while nearby attractions include the Liverpool Museum, Tate Liverpool and The Beatles Story.
2.Aloft Liverpool By Marriott ⭐⭐⭐
The design-focused Aloft is located in the middle of North John Street, and is an excellent choice for those who are in Liverpool for shopping or nightlife.(Although because of the latter, those who are light sleepers can ask for a room in the back of the building.) The 116 rooms in the Aloft are bright, fantastic value and fun, with large bags of oranges instead of sofas. On the ground floor, a cocktail bar, a gym and a large and busy restaurant complete what is on offer.
3.The Nadler Liverpool ⭐⭐⭐
The rooms are well equipped and have kitchenettes (no restaurant or breakfast area on site) and, most importantly, given their location in the club, the triple-glazed windows.
4.The Shankly Hotel ⭐⭐⭐
It has 83 rooms, as well as apartments on the top floor (which can sometimes become a noisy area). The Bastion restaurant makes a fry-up in case you need to get over a hangover; if you’re a Beatles fan, you’ll appreciate the proximity to Mathew Street and the Cavern Club.
5.The Z Hotel Liverpool
There are 92 small rooms here, each with private showers and bathrooms and Sky TV; downstairs you will find free wine and cheese every night.
6.Hard Days Night Hotel ⭐⭐⭐
Its 110 rooms have group portraits, pop art and ‘Austin Powers’ decor everywhere (as well as quieter touches like a Lennon room with a big white baby in the ‘Imagine’ video). You’re well placed for the nearby tours of the Beatles’ Cave District, although if you want to stay put, the live room invites local musicians to play.Yes, they play Beatles covers.
7.Hope Street Hotel ⭐⭐⭐
Liverpool’s first boutique hotel is tasteful and discreet, eliminating the glitz in favour of fresh linen, exposed bricks and warm wood, and the formula works.The serene atmosphere has ensured that it is a hit with visiting celebrities who might normally opt for more formal and grand hotels.89 rooms, a small 24-hour fitness centre and a busy restaurant, London Carriage Works, also caters for dogs.Our advice?get tickets for the Liverpool Philharmonic: it’s right down the street.
8.Malmaison Liverpool ⭐⭐⭐
The first property built specifically for the boutique chain is an 11-storey block on the old docks.Like all the hotels in Malmaison, it features dazzling parades, sexy cocktail bars combined with shades of black and purple, which might seem tacky if it wasn’t so much fun.130 rooms and suites on the top floor overlook the Mersey.don’t miss the famous breakfast at the Brasserie.
9.Titanic Hotel Liverpool ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Another bolthole with a Titanic connection, this stunning converted warehouse is located in Stanley Dock. If you agree to a ten-minute taxi ride north of the centre, the 153 rooms, true to the hotel’s name, are spacious loft-style spaces with lots of bricks in sight and plenty of natural light thanks to the splendid windows.There’s also a spa and pool complex in the basement (at an additional charge), along with a popular bar and grill.
10.DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Spa Liverpool ⭐⭐⭐
The 87 contemporary rooms are housed in a refined, old-fashioned Victorian building with well-considered features such as a beautiful library, stained-glass windows, a cigar terrace and a stunning, grand staircase.When you’ve finished walking around the nearby Beatles attractions and Liverpool ONE shopping centre, you can relax by the pool or unwind at the Eforea spa.
