Liverpool's newest hotel turns city shades of Indigo

May 31 2011


The countdown is on for a £15m luxury hotel and restaurant development which is set to open its doors in the heart of Liverpool's commercial district.

Hotel Indigo Liverpool, a 151-bedroom boutique hotel on Chapel Street minutes from the World Heritage Site, will welcome guests from June 6.

The hotel will feature a Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill - his third North West venue. It will also feature an exclusive non-residents lounge providing a regionally-inspired menu and al fresco dining area.

Hotel Indigo design reflects the local area. Hotel Indigo Liverpool, owned and operated by Sanguine Hospitality Limited, will reflect the city's cotton trade history and include themed decoration in its bedrooms and artwork depicting its location including St Nicholas church, Edmund Street, the Cotton Exchange and the Liver Birds.

Hotel Indigo is the boutique hotel brand from InterContinental Hotel Group, the world’s biggest hotel company. It offers guests the best of both worlds - the individuality of a boutique hotel with the reassurance and benefits of a big hotel group. The four-star venue has already secured £500,000 in bookings for both the restaurant and the hotel.

Room bookings are now being taken with a special opening rate of £89 for bed and hot English breakfast. It offers a selection of double and twin bedrooms, all of which offer free Wi-Fi. Further facilities include a residents’ gym and, in each room, rainfall showers, media hub and LCD TV, complimentary selection of mini-bar items, laptop safe, ironing facilities and luxurious Aveda bathroom toiletries.
General manager, David Hughes, said the hotel will bring an original concept for tourists and business people staying in the city and is already causing a stir.

He said:

The design of Hotel Indigo Liverpool is locally inspired which will bring a vibrant feel to the heart of the commercial district and to the city. There is already a buzz in the area thanks to its colourful façade, which is also reflected in the bright interior.

For tourists, it draws on Liverpool’s rich heritage such as cotton trading, to develop interesting themes and to offer guests something much more than simply a place to sleep.

The 130-seater Marco Pierre White restaurant encapsulates this sense of affordable glamour and offers visitors a complete leisure destination.

The restaurant, and the more relaxed dining area, will also welcome non-resident tourists and business people alike looking to enjoy high quality food and experience an exciting and unique atmosphere.

The hotel is only a two minute walk from Liverpool’s World Heritage Site, its developing retail centre and bustling business district. Our team look forward to welcoming our first guests.
