30 James Street hotel – home of the Titanic – opens in Liverpool

The £7m luxury hotel which has been developed within the offices in Liverpool that once co-ordinated the launch of the Titanic ocean liner is welcoming its first guests today.

30 James Street has opened the first 20 of 65 suites within Albion House, a Grade-II-listed, Victorian building, which once housed the White Star Line offices. The rest of the suites, which can sleep from two to nine people, are expected to open by the end of the summer.

The new 11-storey hotel, developed by Signature Living, will eventually be able to accommodate 310 guests.

Many of the 100 guests staying this weekend are expected to attend the Grand National at nearby Aintree.

The centre piece of the hotel is the Carpathia Champagne Bar, located on the roof with an open air terrace enjoying views over the Liverpool skyline.

"This is by far the most exciting project we have worked on so far and it's been thrilling to see the building transform from its dilapidated state into the luxury hotel we have now. Every single room tells a different part of the building's history, so every guest will have an experience which is unique to them."

Titanic will be the latest addition to the Signature Living portfolio, which operates serviced apartments throughout Liverpool.
