    CD Curtain Contracts, Derby based soft furnishings manufacturer, supplied and installed curtains and throws to all guestrooms and public areas, working closely with Aedus and J2 Design at Liverpool One, Hilton’s latest flagship which opened earlier this year.Designed to represent the curvature and ebb and flow of the Mersey River, the hotel is located on the edge of the award-winning Liverpool ONE shopping complex and overlooks Liverpool’s historic Albert Dock.

    The sleek internal décor of the building, by Aedus and J2 Design, has been created to enhance the hotel’s maritime design and heritage. In the lobby, timber has been used to illustrate the meanders of the River, and a piece of artwork mounted in the reception was specifically commissioned and created in resin to support the theme.

    The hotel bar, Pima, celebrates the city’s heritage as a cotton trading port as Pima is a type of high-quality cotton from America. The bar’s interior design includes cotton-related artworks and exclusive lighting that appears as cotton balls.

    The Exchange restaurant acknowledges the site which previously housed the city’s Custom House, regarded as the epicentre of the docks and where the exchange of goods was recorded. In keeping with the Customs House theme, signage for the restaurant has been created using typography and colours typical of an authentic Victorian Dock sign.

    In addition to the 215 rooms, which include one presidential suite, six executive suites and five junior suites, the hotel offers excellent conference and banqueting facilities. The impressive Grace Suite ballroom with its own bar area and floor to ceiling windows, provides access for up to 400 theatre-style guests, while a further eight meeting rooms all benefit from natural light.

    Additional hotel features include a dedicated business centre, wireless internet, state of the art audiovisual equipment, a concierge service and a gym. On the seventh floor, an exclusive executive lounge offers magnificent views over the city.

    With excellent transport links, the Hilton Liverpool is 20 minutes from John Lennon Airport, 45 minutes from Manchester International Airport and less than one mile from Liverpool Lime Street train station which has services to all major cities in the UK. The hotel is also within walking distance from the Arena and the Convention Centre.
