With a globe-spanning reputation as the birthplace of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world, and a football team with a similar standing, it’s no wonder that the city on the Mersey River attracts hordes of tourists. In recent years the city has taken a dynamic approach to freshening up its originally dowdy façade into something impressive – namely the refurbishment of the Albert Dock area (now a hub of bars, restaurants and museums), and numerous civic buildings. Here, we’ve selected the best hotels based on style, location and facilities. Hotels are listed in order of proximity to the city centre.
