Liverpool’s new four-star Hilton hotel – housed in one of the city’s finest historic buildings – is just months away from opening.

DoubleTree by Hilton Liverpool has today revealed the delayed hotel is due to open in March next year.

The company has also announced Terence Southward, a long-standing hospitality expert, will be general manager of the hotel, which is housed in the Grade II-listed former Municipal Annexe at the corner of Dale Street and Sir Thomas Street.

By the time the new DoubleTree By Hilton Liverpool opens next year it will be nine years behind schedule, albeit with a different owner and operator.

Those behind the redevelopment of the two former council buildings say it will be worth the wait though as the 87-room hotel will retain the building’s grandeur from when it was first constructed in 1865.

There will be upscale bedrooms, a restaurant, executive lounge, opulent spa and swimming pool.
