Revealed: The Liverpool hotels where you’re most likely to spot a celeb

Not only is Liverpool a tourist hot spot, it’s also the destination of choice for many A-list celebrities, too.

With two world-class football clubs, an amazing waterfront area and more clubs and restaurants than you can shake a stick at, it’s no surprise that the city’s hotels have had a long list of well-known guests.

Lady GaGa, Ciara and Justin Bieber are just some of the names known to frequent some well-known Liverpool hotels.

We’ve taken a look through the ECHO’s archives to find the hotels where you’re most likely to be spending the night alongside a star.

If you’re a football fan hoping to catch a glimpse of your favourite player, the Hope St Hotel could be your best bet.

The hotel is the preferred venue of the Liverpool squad – and they’re often spotted here.

Amanda Holden, Yoko Ono and Lady GaGa have also previously chosen it as a place to rest their heads.

Jurgen Klopp caused a stir when he arrived to take on his current job as manager of LFC – with the national press mobbing him outside the hotel.

Lady Gaga sent the crowd wild when she stayed at the hotel at the beginning of her career.

The Poker Face star, who has since toned her image down remarkably, stayed at a top-floor penthouse suite after performing at the ECHO Arena.

She also reportedly enjoyed a meal at the Restaurant Bar and Grill before leaving through a backdoor to make her way to the hotel.

It’s not surprising that, on many of Paris’ visits to Liverpool, she chose the hotel chain founded by her great-grandfather Conrad.

The Hilton has also played host to plenty of other big stars, including visiting football teams and Alex Curran.

However, on one visit, Paris must have been feeling more down to earth as she opted for the Lord Nelson Hotel.

The 34-year-old visited Liverpool in April 2008 as she watched then-boyfriend Benji Madden’s band Good Charlotte and, rather than staying in one of the city’s top hotels, the socialite opted for a much more low-key venue.

Paris stayed in the Lord Nelson Hotel, which is situated right next to Lime Street Station and costs just £55-a-night.

Hard Days Night Hotel, North John Street

Given the Hard Days Night is themed around The Fab Four – it’s no surprise to hear it has been a home-from-home for stars of the music world.

In the early days of his career, Justin Bieber fans – or ‘beliebers’ as they like to be called – almost caused a riot when word got round he was staying at the North John Street venue.

Thousands of his fans packed out the street to catch a glimpse of the singer – who sent them into a meltdown when he appeared on the balcony and made a loveheart shape to the crowd.


More recently, The Voice US star Jennifer Hudson stayed at the Hard Days Night when attending a showbiz wedding at the nearby Peckforton Castle.

Her celeb pals Ciara and Russell Wilson were tying the knot in a lavish ceremony at the Cheshire Castle – and for her visit to England, Jennifer obviously wanted to stay in luxury.

She stayed at the hotel’s Lennon Suite – which comes with its own baby grand piano and a round-the-clock concierge service.

The Titanic clearly has the X Factor – as it was the hotel of choice for the judges to hold their auditions for the show.

It was even rumoured that Simon Cowell had chosen to stay there, after he gave a series of interviews about his time in Liverpool.

Last year the Titanic Hotel was at the centre of one of the biggest celebrity weddings of the year, as singing sensation Ciara and NFL player Russell Wilson paid for their wedding party to stay at the Titanic Hotel.

Guests – including Destiny’s Child star Kelly Rowland and RB hitmaker Missy Elliot – announced their arrival at the hotel by posting pictures across social media.

Ciara and Russell even hosted their rehearsal dinner at the hotel’s restaurant before a top secret team of workers prepared nearby Peckforton Castle for the ceremony.

During the day, guests were seen preparing for the wedding, while a manager for the famous couple confiscated their phones to make sure the top-secret wedding stayed under wraps until official photographs were released.

Signature Living’s 30 James Street was part of a multi-million pound development that saw it transformed from an empty building to a luxury hotel and spa.

After opening in 2014, a long-list of celebrities have popped over to Liverpool to spend the night and enjoy beauty treatments in Morgan’s Spa.

Can’t Say No singer Conor Maynard was also recently papped stepping out of the hotel after appearing at the ECHO Arena, where he supported The Vamps on their tour.

Signature Living’s other flagship hotel, The Shankly, has been home to many a TV reality star, including Megan McKenna.

And, given its footballing legend namesake, the R are also regulars – with manager Jurgen Klopp recently dropping in and posing for selfies with fans.
