A major new hotel development is set to breathe fresh life into one of Liverpool's busiest city centre streets.
Plans have been unveiled for the Days Inn Liverpool, a 154-bedroom contemporary hotel on James Street, a key transport route for commuters and tourists arriving in the city.
The three-star venue will occupy all five floors of the vacant former Ministry of Defence offices at Moor House, directly adjacent to James Street railway station, when it opens in February 2011.
Days Inn Liverpool joins 41 other Days Inn properties in the UK and will feature a chic, next generation design by architects Falconer Chester Hall, with LCD TVs, free wi-fi and air conditioning throughout.
Days Inn Liverpool is owned and operated by Sanguine Hospitality Management Company which is behind other north west venues such as Marco Pierre White at The Swan Inn, West Tower, Days Hotel Chester North, Doubletree by Hilton Chester and the under-construction Hotel Indigo Liverpool.
Nick Taplin, managing director at Sanguine HMC, said:
"Days Inn is part of Wyndham, the largest hotel group in the world, that owns a range of highly regarded hotel brands, so we are in good company."
"We wanted to ensure that Days Inn Liverpool would bring something genuinely distinct to the city’s existing hotel offer and location was a key consideration. James Street is ideal, both for its transport links and also its proximity to the city’s major attractions, such as Albert Dock and Liverpool One, while business guests will find themselves in the heart of the commercial district."
"There is a great deal of improvement work planned for the area and we are confident that Days Inn Liverpool will be a destination of choice for many years to come."
Belinda Atkins, Vice President Days Inn EMEA said:
"We are delighted to be opening a Days Inn in Liverpool, bringing great value and a great night’s sleep to the city. Liverpool is an exciting destination both for the business and leisure market and we look forward to opening in 2011."
