The four star Titanic Hotel Liverpool will have 153 bedrooms and is attached to the Rum Warehouse events and exhibition space, also opening this June. The hotel’s launch is the first in a multi-staged redevelopment at Stanley Dock Village, which aims to see the Tobacco and South warehouses converted to a residential, retail, business and leisure complex.
Director of the development for Stanley Dock Village Pat Power said: “This is set to be a spectacular addition to the tourism and leisure landscape, not just for Liverpool but for the UK.
“We have created a hotel which will be generous in size and expressive in its personality, with a genuine devotion from quality and to customer service. It is a hotel much like the city of Liverpool, which we believe will be imbued with the warmth and hospitality of the Liverpool personality.”
The new Titanic hotel includes a luxury spa and also hosts new restaurant destination the Rum Bar. Due to the design and size of the original warehouse building the hotel will offer standard-size hotel rooms which are twice the size of a standard UK four star room. The location of the hotel on the dockside will allow for views of the dock and the nearby historic Tobacco Warehouse.
The development team have aimed to do something a little different with the hotel’s décor in keeping with the history of the site. The cog-patterned carpet in the corridor and the hotel’s furniture is bespoke and aims to complement the original features of the warehouse, which include red brick, ironwork, wide corridors and vaulted ceilings. The reception area will have a chesterfield sofa alongside a coffee table made from railway sleepers. They foyer will also have an exclusive VIP area and coffee place.
The hotel’s Rum Bar will serve a large selection of rums alongside classic cocktails. It will also have an adjoining restaurant with a menu put together by head chef Alex Worrall and features open theatre kitchens. The bar aims to honour the fact that Stanley Dock was once a trading port and storage warehouse for imported rum.
Head of hotel operations Ian Wynne said: “We believe the hotel’s quality and historical connections, combined with Liverpool’s brilliant offer as a tourist destination, will draw people from across the world. This is about a local culture, genuine friendliness, style and chic in quantities that matter.”
The Titanic Hotel’s services will include free WiFi, a shuttle service into the city, drench showers, flat screen TVs and Nespresso coffee machines in the bedrooms.
