The brand is opening the new 87-room hotel, adding to its portfolio of properties in Leeds, Manchester and London.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, the senior vice president of development for Europe and Africa, for Hilton Worldwide, said, ‘The Liverpool market remains one of the most active development centres in the UK for Hilton Worldwide, already home to our upscale Hilton and economy Hampton by Hilton brands. With nearly 60 DoubleTree by Hilton hotels either open or under development, Europe remains a target development market for the brand.’
The new hotel will open in the summer of 2013, located in what was previously the city’s Municipal Annexe, an English Heritage grade 2 listed building that was constructed in 1865. It will be offering amenities that include a restaurant, a residents’ lounge, a spa and swimming pool, and conference facilities. Sanguine Hospitality will operate the hotel, under a franchise agreement with the brand.
Rob Palleschi, the global head for DoubleTree by Hilton, said, ‘A UNESCO World Heritage site and home to the Beatles, Liverpool is a thriving cultural and historic centre that also is the home to numerous businesses and corporate headquarters. The market remains robust in the UK, and we look forward to continued development across the country.’
DoubleTree by Hilton hotel properties are located in around 240 worldwide destinations, and cater to both business and leisure travellers.
