DoubleTree by Hilton has opened its first hotel & spa in Liverpool, which is housed in the Municipal Annexe building, a unique, recently-restored Grade II listed building in the heart of the city. The Hilton Worldwide upscale brand now boasts more than 25 locations across the U.K.
Steeped in history, the property has been given a contemporary finish while retaining all the grandeur of the original construction which dates back to 1865. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Spa Liverpool offers 87 guestrooms and suites, against a backdrop of sweeping staircases, Italian mosaic floors and original Corinthian columns.
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Spa Liverpool boasts Michelin-starred Jean- Christophe Novelli’s only UK restaurant. The 130-seater Jean-Christophe at Michelle Brasserie offers a French brasserie style menu, and will also serve the lounge, conference rooms and banqueting areas at the hotel.
All guest rooms offer the comfort of a king or queen size bed, fridge, secure safe and a 37 inch LCD television. Six suites offer a separate living area with an additional LCD television, pull-out sofa and complimentary mini-bar as well as a separate bathtub and walk-in rain shower. The Presidential Suite has the added benefits of a walk-in wardrobe and original 19th century architectural features, giving it the feel of a small boutique apartment. The bathroom also features an amazing wet room with double steam shower, heated seating, large roll-top bath and twin basins.
The Library Lounge (see photo above) is the perfect spot to enjoy afternoon tea or a glass of Champagne, while three conference and event suites can accommodate up to 250 delegates for weddings, banqueting and meetings.
