As of the 1st of October, Signature Living will take up occupancy of the Grade II listed White Star Line head office, Albion House. It is our intention to turn what was once the organisational hub of the Titanic into a boutique style hotel.
This hotel will be perfectly positioned between the River Mersey and Liverpool’s vibrant shopping district. With plans for 350 beds, 67 separate accommodations, bar, gymnasium and restaurant, the Titanic hotel is set to be an incredible tribute to the grand passenger liner of 1912 and an important asset to Signature Living’s collection of hotels and serviced apartments in the city. In addition to this, the building also has stunning views of the city and of the River Mersey. Amongst these views lies the Three Graces and the Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City, which is a World Heritage site.
Rich in architectural and cultural history, it is important not to forget the story behind this iconic building. It is from the balconies, pictured below, that the names of the deceased were read to the crowd below, leading to the staff being barricaded into the building for 2 days. Additionally, the Titanic building was the tallest in Liverpool at the time and the first to be constructed from steel.
Therefore, our team here at Signature Living have quite a job on their hands in balancing the style, fun and overall unique nature of our accommodations with the integrity and preservation of such a landmark building. We are confident we can deliver, within the 11 floors of the hotel, all of the qualities of Signature Living you have grown to love, whilst highlighting the importance of such an impressive building.
We feel we are perfectly placed to fulfil our goal in making the Titanic apart-hotel a stunning environment, we are now the number one hotel and serviced apartment provider in our city; quite an achievement considering there are only three categories for accommodation on Trip Advisor. To our knowledge, we are the only accommodation provider to have ever achieved this.
You can keep up to date with the project as we move forward and update this page, but so far all we can say is… watch this space, you’re in for a treat upon 30 James Street’s completion!
The eagerly anticipated 30 James Street hotel is expected to be open within April 2014.Take a look at our 30 James Street video by following the link below http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gghjuEV49qw
