From the Liver Building to the Radio City Tower, Liverpool has got its fair share of tall buildings boasting some incredible views of the city and beyond. However, there’s a new building on the block that has joined the cityscape allowing locals and visitors to wake up to some pretty special vistas.
INNSiDE Liverpool, a new hotel by Spanish hotel group Meliá Hotels International, opened its doors in the heart of the city’s commercial district in September bringing a combination of comfort, art and culture. And of course some jaw-dropping views enough to make you not want to leave.
Repurposing the former Echo and Daily Post building, the 207-room hotel offers an eclectic home-from-home feel for guests to explore Liverpool’s city centre. As well as providing a great place to rest your head, INNSiDE Liverpool brings destination restaurant, Gino D’Acampo Old Hall Street, a panoramic 360 sky bar, expansive conference and event space and state-of-the-art fitness gym all under one roof.
The hotel’s upscale modern rooms and suites are more spacious than your typical hotel accommodation ranging from 22m² to a whopping 72m², allowing space to wander the room and sit back to take in views of Liverpool. All rooms are designed to adapt to the dynamic lifestyles of its guests, featuring high-speed Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, in-room mini fridge, a Marshall bluetooth speaker, Nespresso coffee machine and even a yoga mat to allow guests to fully unwind.
Each room has floor-to-ceiling windows with some overlooking the city and others providing views of the River Mersey and Wirral, and you can even get a great look from a comfy king size bed. Who doesn’t want to wake up to incredible views with a fresh coffee in hand? INNSiDE Liverpool also has a number of upgraded rooms including 25 studio rooms that has the addition of a sofa bed; 26 townhouse suites equipped with a separate lounge and free standing bath tub; and one standout condo suite featuring separate bedroom, living space and dining area.
Head down to the ground floor and you’ll find Gino D’Acampo Old Hall Street where you can enjoy breakfast of pastries, cereals, yoghurt, fruit, a full English and more, as well as lunch and dinner, in a chic and contemporary setting. Serving Mediterranean cuisine, guests can tuck into various dishes from calamari and parma ham bruschetta to linguine vongole and lamb stew pugliese. But be sure to save room for dessert so not to miss out on Gino’s signature, creamy tiramisu which has possibly the best ratios of sponge, mascarpone, chocolate, coffee and marsala wine.
But the food and drink doesn’t stop there as guests can head up to the 18th floor of the hotel where a new 360-degree sky bar run by the Gino D’Acampo team is located. Here you’ll find unrivalled panoramic views with all of the city’s famous landmarks in spectacularly sharp focus, plus on a good day you can see as far as the Welsh mountains.
Up at the sky bar you can sit back, relax and sip on a spritz or two whilst you watch the world go by- Mediterranean style. The bar and lounge has an inviting list of Italian small plates, Cicchetti, perfect for date nights, an indulgent bite over business, or enjoyed with family and friends.
In keeping with the hotel’s philosophy ‘Stay Curious’, the Old Hall Street hotel[/trackLink], has collaborated with local lifestyle and plant store concept A Slower Space to create a green-inspired takeover of the entrance area. The INNSiDE Liverpool x A Slower Space collaboration makes for the perfect spot for staycation photos with the plant wall and allowing you to take a piece of the city of home with you in the form of plants, gifts and homewares.
INNSiDE Liverpool also features an exhibition space located on the impressive events floor and is designed to showcase local talent, which is managed by art gallery dot-art. The first show features portraits by Kirsten Todd, plus the artwork within the hotel can be available to purchase, meaning you can leave INNSiDE Liverpool with a unique piece to remember your visit by.
