The Halyard at Ropewalks Liverpool

IHG Hotels & Resorts introduces Vignette Collection to the UK with the signing of The Halyard at Ropewalks Liverpool, Vignette Collection in partnership with Molo Hotels.

The Halyard at Ropewalks Liverpool, Vignette Collection will open under a franchise agreement with Molo Hotels and will be operated by Lighthouse Hotel Management. Located in the historic Ropewalks district in the heart of Liverpool will welcome its first guest later this year.

The hotel will feature 133 rooms, a restaurant, an on-site gym, conferencing facilities and roof top terrace offering unique views on the city landscape. The signing of this property will create 71 jobs and further boost the local economy as guests explore and spend in local businesses.

The growing presence of international events, such as Eurovision 2023, alongside the growing demand for UK staycations following the pandemic, make destinations like Liverpool increasingly popular with leisure and business guests alike. The signing of the first luxury branded hotel in the city marks IHG’s commitment to investing in the destination.

We’re thrilled to be bringing Vignette Collection to the UK – a new luxury brand in an established market for IHG. Vignette Collection gives strategic partners and owners, like Molo Hotels, the opportunity to retain their distinctive hotel identity, while benefitting from IHG’s global scale, Luxury & Lifestyle expertise, and powerful IHG One Rewards loyalty programme. The brand has shown incredible success across the globe in its first year, with 14 hotels signed or opened, which speaks volumes to its emphasis on delivering one-of-a-kind stays and memorable moments alongside a commitment to more responsible travel. Liverpool’s popularity continues to grow as a hub of culture and I’m confident the luxury offering of Vignette Collection will bring a new offering to the city.
