Accor to operate £40m Municipal Buildings hotel 

The French hospitality giant is to run Fragrance Group’s 172-bedroom hotel under its MGallery brand, Place North West understands.

Accor already operates six hotels in Liverpool, including the 221-room Novotel at Paddington Village. MGallery within the Municipal Buildings would be its seventh in the city.  

There are currently three other MGallery hotels in the UK – in Windsor, Cheltenham and Bath. 

Accor has lodged an application with Liverpool City Council to install MGallery signage on the Municipal Buildings, paving the way for the brand’s first North West hotel. 

Work to refurbish and extend the grade two-star-listed Dale Street building is ongoing and main contractor Russell WBHO is due to wrap up in November. 

The £40m scheme was designed by Falconer Chester Hall. 

Fragrance Group and Accor were contacted for comment.

It`s a great building and is certainly getting the quality treatment from the developers, meanwhile it does seem bizarre that Liverpool continues to attract major hotel development but can`t attract the office buildings it is crying out for, or the major residential developers.

This has the potential to become one of the leading hotels in the North West . The main contractor Russell WHBO are doing a fine job , local architects designed the scheme so all looking good.
Can we have some job creation and offices please to run along side such prestigious hospitality projects .
