GO Business Travel in Liverpool

Business Travel in Liverpool With its world famous docks, Liverpool has always been a bustling centre for trade, and although the businesses may have changed over the years, the city remains as influential as ever.

The city’s presence in the world of business also means that many of its visitors are professionals attending conferences and training days. So if you find yourself in Liverpool on a business trip then you’ll be pleased to know there is a wealth of accommodation, conference centres and restaurants that cater for your specific needs.

If you’re looking for somewhere to stay that has all the right business facilities, such as Internet access and meeting rooms, you’ll find a number of hotels to choose from in the heart of Liverpool.

The swanky Marriott City Centre Hotel [map] not only attracts businesspeople, it’s also a haven for celebrities, with its view of the city’s main attractions and excellent leisure club. In addition to the state-of-the-art conference facilities, the hotel boasts a superb restaurant, cocktail bar and comfortable lounge. There are also executive rooms and car parking available on request.

Another popular hotel for business visitors is the Liverpool Moat House [map], a modern city centre hotel equipped with an indoor swimming pool, sauna, fitness centre, steam room, brasserie and bar. It also offers conference and banqueting facilities.

If you fancy making the most of Liverpool’s delightful location on the waterfront then why not book your room at the Crowne Plaza Hotel [map] on Princes Dock. Situated adjacent to the stunning Royal Liver Building [map] and overlooking the River Mersey, this deluxe hotel offers a fabulous health and leisure complex, including a gym and dance studio. There is also tanning and beauty facilities, along with a superb conference room that caters for up to 700 delegates plus a restaurant and bar. In addition the hotel offers secure on site parking.

For those travelling by air, you may want a base that is close to Liverpool John Lennon Airport [map] but not too far from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. So why not try the Marriot Liverpool South, which is built within the original Liverpool airport terminal that was famously thronged with Beatles fans in the 1960s.

It offers wonderful leisure facilities, has a restaurant overlooking the Mersey Estuary, and for something a little different, guests can even book a night in the former control tower, which is now a luxurious presidential suite. The hotel boasts 164 bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom, tea and coffee-making facilities, trouser press, hairdryer, mini-bar, satellite TV, pay movies, radio, direct-dial telephone, voice mail, fax/modem points, iron & ironing board and 24-hour room service. And as winner of Merseyside Tourism Board’s conference venue of the year in 2002, it will be no surprise to learn that the hotel also offers brilliant conference and meeting facilities.

Bosses looking for the perfect venue to hold their Liverpool conference will be spoilt for choice by the array of facilities on offer in the city.

Situated at Sefton Park, the award-winning LACE Conference Centre [map] has an enviable reputation for excellence. LACE offers a calm, professional, environment for meetings, interviews, training and promotional presentations in a parkland setting close to the city centre, airport and M62.

There are four conference rooms and nine meeting rooms at LACE, along with free car parking, exhibition space, on site printing services and a radio studio. The centre can accomodate up to 240 delegates in the light airy rooms with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and on site catering as standard.

Just off the M62 at junction 4 in Walton, you’ll find the Oakmere Conference Centre [map], which provides Merseyside with a purpose-built business and banqueting venue. Whether you’re planning a small meeting or a large conference, with or without catering, you're likely to find the service you’re looking for here. The centre offers the very latest multimedia technology, free car parking and capacity for up to 160 delegates.

If you’re looking for a city centre venue, why not try the Foresight Centre [map] on Brownlow Street, which offers 16 conference areas including an IT suite. Housed within the elegantly refurbished former Liverpool Royal Infirmary, the centre offers a professional and purpose designed facility with all the latest business support services. There is also free car parking, full disabled access, video conferencing facilities and an extensive catering menu.

If you’re looking for a venue close to the airport, then check in at the Cavern Suite [map] in the heart of the Liverpool John Lennon Airport complex. Situated on the first floor of the stunning new terminal building, the suite offers spectacular views of the main concourse, and is an ideal setting for business meetings, corporate events, and training.

After a hard day of meetings, you’ll want to relax and unwind so why not head for one of the many bars and restaurants in the city centre or at the newly restored Albert Dock [map].

Amongst the restaurants that are popular with businesspeople is 60 Hope Street [map] in central Liverpool, which offers gourmet meals, lighter snacks and a good wine and cocktail menu.

Chinatown is also a hit with professionals, with the likes of the Far East Restaurant [map] on Berry Street that offers all you can eat buffets and gourmet food in the evenings.
