Titanic Hotel Liverpool, in the heart of Liverpool’s historic docklands, has opened to the world.
The North Warehouse at Stanley Dock has been completely transformed into a 153 bedroom luxury hotel complete with dedicated restaurant, bar, spa and 1,000 capacity events space.
Head of Hotel Operations, Ian Wynne, said: “In just little over a year this beautiful historic Liverpool landmark has been completely metamorphosed from a derelict brick shell to a hotel like nothing else in the city, or even the world.
“We are thrilled with the feedback we’ve had from guests who joined us on our opening night (July 5). The whole team had been working hard to get everything just right for the launch and when our guests walked through the arched brick entrance into the hotel, Stanley’s Bar and Grill and the Rum Bar, it was clear everyone was impressed with the transformation.”
The Grade II 19th Century North Warehouse, was designed by Jesse Hartley, built in 1855 and has been renamed in recognition to the city’s connection to the famous liner.
The hotel renovation project has retained many of the original brick and iron features which pay homage to the World Heritage site status of the area and complement the high quality fittings and eclectic designer furniture.
Guests can expect standard-sized hotel rooms to be twice as big as a UK standard 4 Star room the size of which has come as a result of the enormity of the original building which stored goods from across the world such as rubber and tobacco.
Ian added: “One of our USP’s is the generosity of our rooms but of each and every space in the hotel. Every room has both a separate bath and shower, Neal’s Yard products and windows with amazing vista’s over the Mersey Estuary or the Tobacco Warehouse. We are generous in both size and in our nature.”
Stanley’s Bar and Grill, headed by renowned chef Alex Worrall, features a menu of regional meat products, fish from the Cornwall shores and locally sourced vegetables, as well as freshly baked good from a unique social enterprise involving students from Liverpool City College.
The city’s new stylish hideaway the Rum Bar features 60 different varieties of the worlds very best rums which can be tailored into a ‘Rum Tale’ cocktails devised by specialist mixologists giving guests the story from the birth place of the rum, its journey to the bottle, all the way through to why the ingredients it is collated have been chosen.
“The hotel’s waterside terrace has views across the dock to original Pumping Station and to the immense Tobacco Warehouse and is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail, whatever night of the week,” added Ian.
In the depths of the luxury Titanic Hotel in Liverpool’s historic docklands lays the T-Spa which will open later this Summer. With a five treatment rooms encased in exposed brickwork arches, a Roman bath pool area, aqua thermal experiences as well as a Technogym, T-Spa is now the city’s most sumptuous destination to escape, relax and unwind for guests and visitors alike.
The adjoining events space the Rum Warehouse has been open since June, welcoming prestigious events from the International Festival for Business (IFB) with space for 1,000 theatre-style, 600 for dinner on the ground floor and up on the mezzanine area a further 300 with 14,000 sq m exhibition space.
The hotel’s official opening party will held in Autumn 2014 and guests are now able to book their stay in the hotel and the public can also book a meal at Stanley’s Bar and Grill and frequent the Rum Bar from July 5.
Ian said: “We are extremely proud of what stands here in the North Warehouse at Stanley Dock today – a project everyone has worked very hard to achieve. We already have bookings coming in from guests visiting Liverpool from all over the world and a huge number of high-level events booked in at the Rum Warehouse so the message about us is spreading fast.
“Like Liverpool’s ancestors who brought goods in from the New World more than a century ago and developed this city to what it is today, so do we want to be the pioneers for the next generation and life at Stanley Dock with the new Titanic Hotel Liverpool.”
Titanic Hotel is the first of a multi-staged redevelopment at Stanley Dock Village, which will transform the former Tobacco and South Warehouses, into an innovative residential, business, retail, educational and leisure complex.
