My wife and i stayed here for our anniversary on 21st August, I'd booked this hotel after months of deliberation over whether to go for this one, The hard Days night or the novotel, but chose this as it gets mentioned so often in top 10 boutique hotel lists and also features in the Mr & Mrs Smith guide books.
It was a great choice. The hotel is beautifully designed, exposed wood and brick work, leather sofa's enormous beds with thick sheets and an open wet room/shower in the bathroom (king Deluxe room).
If you are looking for something individual and stylish then this is the one to go for. As well as looking great the staff are genuinely friendly and helpful which isn't just coincidence, i think the owners push this as one of their USP's. The breakfast in the adjoining 'London Carriage Works' is also excellent, a real top quality fry up. We didn't have an evening meal there as we chose to eat out otherwise you feel like you are stuck in the same place too long.
The only thing I would mention is the under floor heating, I couldn't work out how to turn this off, - admittedly I should have asked, however the heat was overpowering and we woke up really dehydrated even with the windows open.
Some useful tips - there is a car park around the corner (a side road opposite the Everyman Theatre) which is half the price of the hotels car park - £5 per day. If you are staying in the summer then they have a 'giddy summer' offer of 2 nights accommodation, an upgraded room, champagne in the room and breakfast both days for just £188. which bearing in mind a normal night rate for a standard room is £140 then this is a bargain. They also operate an 'on the day' rate meaning that if you fancy an impromptu stay then call them for a bargain price.
Other recommendations would be -
'Host' which is a restaurant opposite the hotel serving, japanese/Indonesian/chinese fare is excellent, very laid back very cheap (tenner each) and very tasty for a quick meal.
Panoramic - go here for a drink, no really do, its incredible, its on the 34th floor of a tower block over looking the docks and the views are just amazing. Its a restaurant and bar but i'd heard that the food can be a let down so just went for drinks. You will need to dress up and also have to book (even just for drinks) but it really is utterly brilliant to watch the sunset and have a cocktail.
Alma De Cuba - big let down. Its a nice enough bar but we went to see the petal display at 11pm and it turned out to be just a girl with a bucket stood on the balcony.
All in all Liverpool is a great choice for a city break and if you stay at the Hope Street Hotel you won't regret it.
