Radisson Hospitality AB, part of Radisson Hotel Group, has signed a deal to open the Radisson Red Liverpool in the UK. 

“We’re delighted to be bringing a new Radisson Red in EMEA, and second Red in the UK, following the opening of Radisson Red Glasgow earlier this year,” Elie Younes, EVP & CDO, Radisson Hotel Group, said in a statement. “Liverpool has always felt like the ideal fit for Radisson Red’s unique twist on hospitality. Its music heritage, in particular, matches the ethos of Red—and we’ve seen visitors show a renewed interest in the city since its time as the European Capital of Culture.”

Due to open in 2020, the Radisson Red Liverpool will be housed in a historic building, originally designed as the North Western Hotel, with Renaissance-style spires and turrets. The building will undergo a £30-million refurbishment by UK-based developer, and the building’s owner, Marcus Worthington Group. Alongside the property’s 202 guestrooms, the hotel will have a restaurant and bar, a gym as well as space for meetings and events.

Located in the center of Liverpool, adjacent to Lime Street Station, the world’s oldest grand mainline terminal still in use (transporting more than 15 million passengers a year), Radisson Red Liverpool will be close to major attractions like St George’s Hall, Albert Dock, the Tate Gallery and the Beatles Story, along with the city’s main business, leisure and retail hubs. Liverpool’s John Lennon International Airport and Manchester International Airport are also both within easy reach. 

Earlier this year, Colliers International’s UK Hotels Market Index noted that Liverpool has 1,170 guestrooms in its pipeline for the next two years.
