Maiden voyage for the Titanic Hotel, Liverpool, UK

by Katie Buckley | 07 Jul 2014

The Titanic Hotel, in Liverpool, UK, opened to the public on 5 July, in a Grade II listed warehouse.

Situated in the heart of Liverpool’s docklands, the North Warehouse at Stanley Dock has been completed transformed into a 153-bedroom luxury hotel, featuring a restaurant, bar, spa and a large events space. The spa, which will open later this summer, will feature five treatment rooms encased in exposed brickwork arches, a Roman bath pool area, aqua thermal experiences as well as a fitness area with Technogym equipment.

The original warehouse was designed by Jesse Hartley – as part of Stanley Docks which opened in 1848. Now a Grade II listed site, with most of the buildings on the Heritage at Risk Register, The Titanic Hotel signals the start of a major redevelopment for the area. General manager, Greg Place, said: “In little over a year, this beautiful historic Liverpool landmark has been completely metamorphosed from a derelict brick shell to a hotel like nothing else in the city, or even the world.”

The Titanic Hotel Liverpool is connected to the Titanic Visitor Centre in Belfast, as well as other branded hotels to be launched across the UK. This is the one of two Titanic related hotel to open in Liverpool this year, the second, is located in 30 James Street, previously The White Star Line’s headquarters.

Despite the Titanic being scheduled to visit Liverpool on her voyage from Belfast to Southampton, the stop off was cancelled. However, Liverpool’s connection with the great ship did not end there. The White Star Line founded by Thomas Ismay, owner of the Titanic, the Carpathia and the Californian was founded in Liverpool, meaning the Titanic was registered to the city. Many of the crew and engineers were from the city and the ship was full of local craftsmanship, such as the bell and the nine hundred portholes.
