The Baltic Hotel will be the first hotel ever in Liverpool’s thriving Baltic Triangle is set to open following more than £7million worth of investment.
The hotel was built throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and will open just two days after the government’s proposed end of all restrictions on July 21.
Owners Town Hotels say it is “a place where punk art meets urban chic and traditional hip joins synonymously with effortless cool”.
Every one of the 58 rooms will deliver an eccentric, unique feel with music memorabilia adorning the walls and luxurious lounge areas. Peloton bikes have also been installed in some spaces while others boast stellar views over the city and River Mersey.
Completing the rooms are fully-stocked Marshall speaker mini-bars and interactive tablet controls.
The Baltic Hotel, situated in a former factory and warehouse, is also blessed with two beautiful spaces and the owners have kept many of the original features in order “to show off pre-war architecture dressed in post-war modernism”.
One space is being transformed into the Duck & Swagger pub, with inspiration drawn from Guy Ritchie’s trendy London offerings, and the second is a laidback Shoreditch-style restaurant called The Baltic Brasserie.
The venue will open up the entire Baltic Triangle to new Liverpool visitors and Town Hotels are aiming to offer a true staycation experience to anyone who books.
The Baltic Triangle was almost written off 14 years ago as little more than a red light district. However, it is now one of Britain’s hippest destinations and the former industrial area will receive another major shot in the arm when The Baltic Hotel opens its doors next month to make the district a true tourist destination.
Town Hotels, who act as the hospitality division of Merseyside-based property development company Living Brick, built The Baltic Hotel throughout the Covid-19 pandemic due to their confidence in the city bouncing back and visitors returning to experience everything the Baltic Triangle now has to offer.
Manager, Duncan Stewart said:
“We’re incredibly proud and excited to be opening the first hotel ever in Liverpool’s vibrant Baltic Triangle,”
“Our Duck & Swagger is a place for great beer while The Baltic Brasserie will serve incredible food and both venues are there for people to just chill and socialise.
“The Baltic Hotel really is a destination in its own right and we feel the food and drink facilities compliment the location.
“The development will feature many of the building’s original features with a modern twist and is another example of our belief Liverpool will become the go-to city once again as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted entirely.
“We’ve spent more than £11m on The Baltic Hotel and our recently completed Duke Street Boutique Apartments. They will both add to our already established serviced apartment portfolio which includes York Street Studios and Chavasse Apartments in the city centre.
“We’ve worked with a brilliant team throughout the pandemic to get the new hotel ready and we are expecting an incredible summer as people start returning to the city with lockdown restrictions lifted completely.”
