Radisson Hotel Group is to add a second UK property under its Radisson Red brand, located next to Liverpool’s mainline Lime Street rail station.

Radisson Red Takes Over Liverpool’s Historic North Western Hotel

The 202-room property will be housed within the city’s Renaissance style North Western Hotel building, which originally opened as a railway hotel in 1871, and most recently served as halls of residence for Liverpool John Moores University.

Scheduled to open in 2020 following a £30 million refurbishment project, the “boldly designed” Radisson Red Liverpool will feature a restaurant, gym, and a “creative meetings and events space”.

Commenting on the news Elie Younes, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said:

“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.

“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. We’re looking forward to helping guests explore the best Liverpool has to offer.”

The Radisson red brand launched in Brussels in 2016, with subsequent locations including Campinas (Sao Paulo), Cape Town and Minneapolis. The group has described the brand as appealing to “tech-savvy guests with an ageless millennial mindset”.
