How to Get There
I recently organised a Fifty Years On Reunion Weekend for graduates in French from Liverpool University, and we stayed at the newly extended Hope Street Hotel. I had arranged a number of attractions for colleagues, now all in their seventies ! including a walking tour of Liverpool to include both cathedrals, the Magical Mystery Tour bus, an afternoon visit to see the Rare Books Collections in the Central Libraries, and a lovely evening meal at Cote Liverpool in Paradise Street. The icing on the cake, literally, was our hotel - we had stayed there three years ago for our niece's wedding, but the hotel now has expanded to a capacity of 150 rooms. Our rooms were all Superking bedrooms - good size, huge bed, expansive bathroom with bath, toilet and walk in shower; the breakfasts were excellent (the Liverpool 'fry-up' is legendary), the facilities for our meetings were right next to the entrance, and the front desk staff, brilliantly led by Tracy Williams, were right at the top of their game. We capped off a wonderful weekend with Choral Mass at Christ the King Cathedral.
If it were possible to give HSH six stars, we would have been delighted to do so - we have stayed in hotels all over the world, and this one is Liverpool's flagship hotel.
We visited The Hope Street Hotel on Friday 7th June as a final team dinner whilst at the European Cystic Fibrosis Conference at ACC Liverpool. Lovely venue, fabulous views, fabulous food and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Definitely highly recommend this restaurant.
Lovely stay. We came up from Plymouth... what a treat. We celebrated my mum's 80th in the Carriage Works, Hayley our waitress really made my mum's night. Food gorgeous and the hotel is relaxed, funky and staff are really attentive. Thank you for making it so special.
A centre of town hotel with rather nice decor (stripped wood style) and very good breakfasts. Mediocre room service (but nice to have this option). The beds were comfy and everything nice and clean.
Price: I think my colleague may have negotiated a good price for a group but an extra night I spent here independently was a bit eye watering.
In the standard room where I started, the bathroom looked chic but was a frankly daft design where you have to climb into the bath from on end, half of one side being occluded by the sink unit. The loo also is unnecessarily squashed against the wall on one side. Heaven knows how the poor cleaners cope with this. I had a bad back when I visited so this was all problematical for me and the hotel kindly relocated me to a room with separate bath and shower which was just fine. I do find it weird though, how Japanese hotels can make tiny bathrooms work well but British hotels so often mess up with daft positioning of sinks loos etc!!
Staff were friendly and helpful when I arrived very late and flustered after a horrible journey.
Located near university and very near to the Liverpool Phil. Some nice pubs and pizza express close by.
We visited this hotel in February and enjoyed ourselves so much we returned for two nights. We had a studio room which was on the corner of the building. It was an excellent room, very bright, and extremely comfortable. Sofa and armchair and lots of space. The staff were as friendly and helpful as before and plenty of choice at breakfast. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the vicinity. The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic concert hall is directly opposite. We highly recommended this hotel.
