With plenty of exposed brickwork, natural wood furnishings and a minimalist design, Hope Street Hotel is a stylish stay in the centre of Liverpool. In the past decade, it has been name-checked all over the national (and international) press -- it featured in Conde Nast's Top 116 Hotels in the World (2005) and was named The Sunday Times' Best Value Urban UK Hotel (2011), while also appearing in its 100 Ultimate British Hotels (2013) list.
The hotel is in a converted 1860s warehouse, built in a Venetian palazzo style for a coach and carriage builder, between the city's Metropolitan and Anglican cathedrals in the heart of the city. Across the street is the Liverpool Philharmonic, and the Unity Theatre is just around the corner.
It is also home to restaurant The London Carriage Works, which has been awarded two AA Rosettes every year since 2010. It serves modern British food made using local, seasonal produce. Its lounge area has an extensive cocktail menu and a 180-strong wine list, as well as a Steinway grand piano with performances from live musicians.
All rooms have solid wood floors with under-floor heating and some have views across the city's skyline to the Mersey. Each room also has free Wi-Fi access and a TV with DVD player, and you can make use of the hotel's DVD and CD library.

"You can discard your cloth cap and preconceptions of the North when you walk into the hotel's spacious and elegantly minimalist lobby" -- Daily Mail
