Did you know that Liverpool's got a link to the infamous Titanic? Yeah, turns out that although the ill-fated liner never docked here, the company who owned it, White Star Lines, was headquartered on the same street as this very hotel: James Street. There's a (less tragic) nautical theme pervading at this 64-room luxury hotel as a result – and much like the blockbuster of the same name, it’s a tad cheesy but loads of fun. Down in the basement, you’ll find a spa, while the roof (call it a deck if you like) plays host Carpathia Champagne bar. On land, attractions nearby include the Museum of Liverpool, Tate Liverpool and The Beatles Story. You'll find you're right by Albert Dock, and a small walk from plenty of Liverpool's other landmarks.
Planning a trip to Liverpool? Whether you’re here for the footie (blue or red) the Beatles (historically), the ferry ride across the Mersey or just for some Scouse bonhomie, Liverpool makes for a peach of a mini-break. The fact that it has more museums and galleries than any other UK city outside of London doesn’t hurt either. And when it comes to hotels, Liverpool caters to fans of all stripes – and budgets. From big and beautiful to small and practical. Here are the ten best hotels in Liverpool, giving the best in London a run for their money.
