Looking for somewhere to stay in Liverpool that tells a story? These hotels should do the trick.

Liverpool has hotels filled with history and heritage, whether that’s a music themed hotel, to simply beautiful spaces, you can find a space that’s truly special to start your Liverpool adventure in.

Your hotel stay is about to become super insta-worthy 🤳📸


Liverpool has not one but two Titanic themed hotels, aren’t we lucky! Registered in the city and carrying its name on her stern, Liverpool and the Titanic were closely linked, so much so there’s a special exhibit about the connections at the Merseyside Maritime Museum.


The Titanic Hotel Liverpool is built on what was once a bustling port at Stanley Dock. An old rum and tobacco warehouse (which inspired the name of the hotel’s conference and exhibition centre) and built in 1846, the old dockside has been lovingly restored. With huge rooms covering 56sq metres, the hotel is a slice of luxury. Original features have been kept and restored, so it’s a hotel with enormous character.

On site there’s also a luxury spa where you can unwind in true luxury - think hydrotherapy pool, sauna, foot bath and experience shower. Pure bliss.

If only every Monday morning was like this 💆🏼‍♀️💧

Over at 30 James Street, is a striking building which was once the headquarters of the White Star Line, where the Titanic was registered. With themed floors and a “cabin” like feel, the hotel offers views over the waterfront and River Mersey.

There’s also a rooftop champagne bar which boasts stunning views over the waterfront while you sip on a cold glass of bubbly.


We’re famed for our famous, iconic buildings and recently many of these buildings have been brought back into use as fabulous hotels. Let’s take a look at some of our favourites...


Nestled in the heart of Wirral’s countryside, under an hour from Liverpool city centre, is the Hillbark Hotel and Spa. In a sumptuous Grade II listed building it is the UK’s smallest five star hotel. A celeb favourite, especially when the Open Golf Championship is in town, it’s a stunning place to stay.


A short distance away is the Leverhulme Hotel, in the historic Port Sunlight Village. Just a twenty minute train ride from Liverpool Central, Port Sunlight was created by William Hesketh-Lever as a home for his Sunlight soap factory workers in 1888. A four star hotel featuring a fine dining restaurant and a spa, it’s the perfect place to relax.


Liverpool’s a place of beautiful buildings and we’re not short of wonderful places for you to stay. Let’s take a look...


For a striking stay opt for Aloft Liverpool, in the city’s Royal Insurance Building in the Commercial District. This baroque style building was built in 1896 as the head office of the Royal Insurance Company. The architects added detail to the building to suit its tenants; on the front is a frieze depicting themes relating to insurance. Many of the building’s original features remain, so look up when you arrive.


Nearby at Hatton garden is The Richmond. Formerly a transport building the space has been restored and decadently transformed. With high ceilings and grand staircases it’s a building with plenty of character and love.

I adore the brickwork of this hotel 😍 let's all take time to appreciate this!!

Liverpool is famed for its music, we are a UNESCO City of Music afterall. Therefore we need a hotel to match, and we think we’ve got the perfect one…


The Hard Day’s Night Hotel is the world’s only Beatles inspired hotel, and where better than in the heart of Liverpool, and just a stone’s throw from the famous Cavern Club and Mathew Street. A four star hotel in a Grade II listed building with over 110 individually designed rooms, it nods to the building’s character while celebrating the Fab Four. Beatles artwork adorns the walls and the dedicated staff offer a memorable stay. Make sure you look up when you’re outside to see the four Beatles’ statues on the front of the hotel itself.


As well as all of our beautifully unique buildings we also have a few weird and wonderful ones thrown in too. Here’s one of our favourites that you can stay in...


The Thatched Pavilion, a former cricket pavilion is located in the beautiful surrounds amongst the vast grounds of Thornton Manor, the former home of Lord Leverhulme.

It’s a beautiful cottage with an unusual roof and sleeps 5 people - it’s certainly one you’d want to boast about on Instagram!

Impressive. #thorntonmanor #wirral #wedding #winter #winterwedding

As well as the big chain names we all know and love, Liverpool is home to some of THE BEST boutique hotels in the country. Here's a few of our favourites...


Lock and Key is a 14-bed boutique hotel set within a Grade-II listed Georgian townhouse in the heart of Liverpool city centre. The restful, hushed hotel ambience is complimented by the speakeasy-style bar downstairs, where you can escape for a post-prandial nightcap. The Bar:Kitchen serves Brunch by day and popular Neapolitan Pizza’s by night alongside themed cocktails, local beers and wines.


In its first year alone, Hope Street Hotel was voted as one of the world's coolest 50 hotels by Condé Nast Traveller - pretty impressive stuff if you ask us!

The original warehouse was built around 1860 in a style of the day - the Venetian Palazzo. In 2003 it was rescued, renovated, refurbished and designed by a local team who still operate it today. Oh, the views from the top are pretty impressive too...


If you’re a fan of football or visiting the city for a big game then what better place to stay than at one of our football inspired hotels. 


The Shankly Hotel is a tribute to the life and career of one of football’s finest managers, Bill Shankly. Offering guests comfortable and stylish accommodation right in the heart of the city, your football trip starts here. If you’re a Liverpool fan then there’s no better place to stay!

They also offer suites for large parties so if there is a whole group of you heading to the city you can all stay together.
