Accor confirms Pullman opening in Liverpool

French hotel group Accor has confirmed that it will open a property under its upscale business brand Pullman on the waterfront at Liverpool's Kings Dock, next year.

The 216-bedroom hotel will be the second Pullman hotel in the UK, following the launch of a 312-bedroom property in London St Pancras in 2012.

Located alongside the new Exhibition Centre Liverpool, which will be integrated with the Arena and Convention Centre (ACC) Liverpool, the hotel will be operated by Branded Hotel Management (BHM) under a franchise agreement.

It joins Accor's exisiting brands in Liverpool, including Formule1, Ibis, Ibis Styles Novotel, and Adagio.

Thomas Dubaere, managing director, Accor UK & Ireland, said: "The opening of the Liverpool Pullman highlights our dedication to our upscale offering and to growing this important area of the Accor portfolio. Our pipeline of new opening continues to be strong and as we progress towards our ambitious growth target of 300 hotels in the UK and Ireland."

Bob Prattey, chief executive of ACC Liverpool, added: "The Pullman hotel will be the ‘headquarters' hotel for conferences and exhibitions taking place at ACC Liverpool and Exhibition Centre Liverpool, so securing a leading, world-respected brand was imperative for us to ensure a comfortable stay for delegates and visitors. The hotel will enhance the accommodation available in the city and will be a welcome addition to our iconic waterfront."

Launched five years ago, the Pullman brand is currently represented by 85 hotels in 24 countries, with ambitions for 500 hotels in the long term. It is part of the wider Accor portfolio, which has 3,600 hotels across 12 brands.
