Radisson RED Liverpool

The new property marks the upscale brand’s arrival in Liverpool, and the north of England more widely. It grows RED’s British portfolio following successful openings in Glasgow and London.

Radisson RED Liverpool is housed in the Grade II-listed Northern Western Hall building. Originally constructed as a railway hotel in 1871 due to its proximity to Liverpool Lime Street station, the site has undergone extensive renovation works.

Much of the renovation work has concentrated on the building’s 19th century stained glass window and grand sandstone staircase with its 94 m handrail. Other original features from the building’s construction have also been restored such as its turrets and spires.

Its design draws heavily on the history of the city, a 1960s-style scooter and sidecar as well as a submarine sculpture can be found in the hotel. Local legends such as The Beatles and the Liver bird, symbol of the city, appear throughout the property in its artwork and decorations. Bespoke art pieces were commissioned from local artist Indigo Art to adorn the guestrooms and other spaces.

The hotel boasts 201 rooms and suites across 10 floors, a gym, 5 meeting and events spaces, and a private dining room for up to 8 people. On the ground floor is its in-house restaurant, Stoke, which offers a seasonal, ‘farm-to-fork’ menu, as well as also an open kitchen and robata grill.

Located in the heart of the city, Radisson RED Liverpool provides guests with easy access to notable attractions like the Empire Theatre, St George’s Hall, the Royal Albert Dock, and retail and leisure destination Liverpool ONE.

The Radisson RED brand and the city of Liverpool are the perfect match, both representing fun and vibrancy with strong links to music, art, and design. The building has undergone an incredible transformation. It’s one of the first buildings that visitors to the city will see when they arrive so we’ve worked hard to create an unforgettable experience for both locals and tourists.

The opening of Radisson RED Liverpool and the building’s renovation have been greatly anticipated across the city for some time and we’re thrilled to finally reveal the finished look. Liverpool is an incredibly unique place and we’ve worked hard to reflect this throughout the hotel, paying tribute to local icons and giving a nod to the building’s rich heritage. Bringing an exciting food and drink venue to the city was also a key priority. We are looking forward to welcoming guests and creating a real must-visit destination.
