Luxury hotel set for Liverpool

A luxury hotel has been slated as a potential use for a historic building in the centre of Liverpool, with Waldorf Astoria tipped as the potential operator.

Developers Castlewood Property Management has lodged an application to develop a 138-bedroom, five-star hotel on the site of the former Martins Bank, a Grade-ll listed building which has been empty since Barclays bank moved out a few years ago.

The £40m development would include two restaurants, a 12,500sq ft spa and conference and banqueting facilities.

A spokesman for Hilton Worldwide, which operates the Waldorf Astoria brand, said the company is in an exciting phase of growth and is looking at many locations around the UK to introduce various brands from our portfolio.

"Liverpool is a destination which continues to attract our interest and we are in discussions regarding sites in the city, though nothing has been confirmed at this early stage," he said.
