Where the city's pulse is, one finds the Pull­man Liver­pool: a brand-new ho­tel erected on the fa­mous King's Dock wa­ter­front, side by side with the Arena and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre with which it col­lab­o­rates. This el­e­gant four-star venue fea­tures 216 rooms, a bar with an im­pec­ca­ble view on the River Mersey, as well as the Duke's—an all-day brasserie-style restau­rant in­spired by the city's mar­itime past. At its spec­tac­u­lar in­au­gu­ra­tion in spring 2016, Pull­man Liver­pool fur­ther­more marked its great artis­tic am­bi­tions by host­ing a com­mis­sioned per­for­mance by Swiss artist Raphael Hefti in the frame­work of the Liver­pool Bi­en­nial. Us­ing an ex­pert blend of brushed cop­per, wood and stone, the ho­tel de­sign cra­dles the marine in­flu­ence from the docks in­side and out. En­ter­ing the re­cep­tion, guests are first met by the daz­zling sight of its jet-black world globe cen­ter­piece. Then by The Wel­com­ers—a friendly and in­for­ma­tive front-of-house team who man­ages check-in quickly and ef­fi­ciently while guests re­lax over a drink in the open plan bar.
