Work to begin on new Liverpool One hotel

Work on School Lane Hotel, Liverpool One’s new independent hotel, will begin this spring. Located in the Russell Building on the corner of School Lane and Peter’s Lane, the new hotel will be operated by Hope Street Hotel Ltd in a joint venture with YPG Developments Ltd.

School Lane Hotel will provide a premium guest experience that complements Liverpool One’s wider retail and leisure offer. The hotel will include 50 guest bedrooms, a restaurant with open plan kitchen and rooftop bar, a gym, conference room and coffee lounge. Work is scheduled for completion in early 2020.

Dave Brewitt, founder and CEO of Hope Street Hotel Ltd, said, “These are exciting plans that will deliver a high-quality hotel in one of the most popular cities for tourism in the UK. Liverpool’s reputation for the quality of its cultural, retail and leisure offer and the experience it provides for visitors, creates the perfect setting for School Lane Hotel, a landmark sister destination to Hope Street Hotel.”

Alison Clegg, Director, Asset Management at Grosvenor Europe, added, “We are delighted that Hope Street Hotel has been confirmed as the operator, given their reputation for delivering exemplary service and providing such a high-quality experience for guests. School Lane Hotel is another exciting addition to Liverpool ONE.”

The plans for the boutique hotel are the latest in a series of significant milestones at Liverpool One, which celebrated its tenth anniversary last year, and which helped contribute to a 66% increase of Liverpool’s visitor economy since opening.
