Accor has released images of the new-build Novotel Liverpool Paddington Village hotel, set to open on July 4.
Located in the Knowledge Quarter, the 16-storey hotel is expected to be the city’s highest hotel and will include 221 rooms along with 32 long-stay apartments.
The hotel has been designed by Ryder Architecture, with the brand’s new global design concept by the Sundukovy Sisters, and is referred to as the flagship hotel by Accor for the new £1 billion Paddington Village development.
The hotel has partnered with a variety of Liverpool-based suppliers for the property. Bean Coffee will operate a ground-floor coffee shop and also supply its locally roasted coffee in guests’ bedrooms, while Baltic Triangle-based Love Lane Brewery will offer guests its Liverpool-made craft beer.
Additional suppliers include Baltic Bakehouse, Laura’s Little Bakery, Murphy’s Gin and Vodka, Rascal Gin, Zest Limoncello and Liverpool Lost Dock Rum.
Facilities will include meeting and conferencing areas, a children’s recreational space in the lobby, a restaurant and gym.
The long-stay apartments have been designed in partnership with health and education partners in the Knowledge Quarter to cater for patients, students and relatives from the nearby hospitals and universities.
Howard Lewis, general manager, said:
“I am thrilled to finally be able to reveal what the hotel will look like inside, and I invite our neighbours to come and see it for themselves when we finally open our doors to the public on July 4.
“Most important to me is that guests come here and know they are in Liverpool… It is essential that we support our local suppliers, and we are actively looking to work with other local companies over the coming months.”
The hotel will join the existing Novotel Liverpool Centre, located on Hanover Street and last reviewed by Business Traveller in 2013.
