It will feature 175 rooms, a sports bar concept, Spa Mama Skin, karaoke rooms,10-pin bowling, a Cinemama, coworking space, and a rooftop bar and restaurant.
Marking the brand’s first hotel to open in the north of England, Mama Shelter Liverpool will join Mama Shelter London Shoreditch as the brand’s two UK hotels. Currently, there are 17 operating hotels in the global brand portfolio.
Cedric Gobilliard, brand COO of Mama Shelter at Ennismore, said: “We knew Liverpool was the perfect destination for Mama Shelter’s next hotel in the UK because the city embodies the Mama spirit with its energy, party spirit and its rich heritage of music and pop culture. It’s the perfect match for Mama’s fun-loving fans.”
Vic Alfa, UK director of Landlab, said: “As a Liverpudlian, I’m incredibly proud and excited to be bringing Mama Shelter to my hometown. Having worked with Accor for the best part of 10 years, Mamas is a brand our team knows well.
“With its colour, vibrancy, and off-the-wall approach, it will inject life and energy back into one of the city’s most iconic buildings and offer something completely new to the people of Liverpool and visitors to this amazing city.”
Additional locations for Mama Shelter include Dubai, Nice, Medellin, Casablanca and Zurich.
