Liverpool Waterfront hotels report increased occupancy

Hotels on Liverpool’s Waterfront have reported an average 82 per cent occupancy between April and June compared to the city average of 78 per cent.
Of the 350,000 rooms sold in Liverpool during Q2, one in five (22%) were sold at the six hotels on Liverpool Waterfront.
The average room rate at hotels on Liverpool’s Waterfront was 11 per cent higher, at £75.47, than the £67.97 average room rate for the rest of the city.
In addition, revenue per average room (RevPAR) was £61.80 at the waterfront compared to the citywide average of £52.83*.
The six hotels surveyed on Liverpool Waterfront were: Malmaison, Crowne Plaza, Express by Holiday Inn, Premier Inn Albert Dock, Jury’s Inn and Staybridge Suites.
“Liverpool Waterfront is a great place to do business and the figures from spring and early summer show that business was booming even before this year’s major events in the city,” said Sue Grindrod, Director and Chair of Liverpool Waterfront Business Partnership.
“Liverpool Waterfront is a reflection of the wider global trend as many of the world’s major cities like Copenhagen, Shanghai and New York have recognised the value of being by the water.”
Stephen Robert, GM at The Crowne Plaza at Princes Dock, added: “Compared to recent years, The Crowne Plaza has enjoyed improved business levels during Q2 compared to the norm for this time of year.
“This has been driven in the main by events such as the Grand National in April and the IFB in June which was a first for the city. The location of the business hub at Mann Island ensured that the city’s waterfront was the destination of choice for many of the business delegates during this time.”
