Holiday Inn Express interconnecting double room

Liverpool’s Ropewalks quarter has gained its second major hotel in weeks.

Holiday Inn Express Liverpool-Central has been unveiled, boasting 125 smoke-free rooms aimed at the business and leisure traveller sectors.

Late last month, IHG Hotels & Resorts said it will introduce its new Vignette collection brand to the UK for the first time later this month (February) with the opening of The Halyard at Ropewalks Liverpool, a 133-room facility.

The new Holiday Inn Express Liverpool-Central is led by General Manager David Daily, who is a veteran of the IHG brand.

He said: “It’s been an absolutely fantastic experience opening the hotel. We appreciate the support we’ve received from our local community, and we’re excited for the opportunity to welcome guests for both business and leisure.”

Designed by ICA architects and interior designers, the hotel is one of the next generation of Holiday Inn Express properties, and utilises modular technology for its 125 non-smoking bedrooms, including interconnecting double and twin rooms.

It is the latest addition to the Molo Hotel Group which said it is proud to add another IHG hotel to its expanding portfolio of hotels.

Managing Director, Ross Morrow, said: “We are thrilled to be adding another IHG hotel to our portfolio in the great city of Liverpool. The hotel offers a simple and smart solution for guests travelling, whether for business, leisure, or a little bit of both.”

Each room features high-speed Wi-Fi, power showers, tea and coffee making facilities, a choice of pillows for personalised comfort, and a 43-inch TV for entertainment with chromecast. Select rooms are available to welcome well behaved pets.

A fully equipped meeting room, which seats up to 12 people, is available for business guests. Located on the seventh floor with floor to ceiling windows, it offers spectacular views over the city. It can also be used for private family gatherings.
