Titanic Hotel Liverpool

Built as a redevelopment project of the historic Stanley Dock, Titanic sits right upon the shore in a striking former warehouse which once played a pivotal role in Liverpool’s industrial prowess. The aesthetic is incredibly captivating, with plenty of walnut furnishings, vaulted ceilings, open brickwork and nautical decor. The rooms are incredibly spacious with large bathrooms and well stocked toiletries. Although several miles from The Royal Albert Dock and the centre of town, Titanic offers a great alternative to the city’s central hotels.
