Famous names are back in the spotlight at Liverpool John Lennon Airport, where the UK’s first budget hotel chain, Travelodge, which currently operates 558 properties, has officially opened its 14th hotel in Merseyside.
Formerly the Holiday Inn Express, it is Travelodge’s 26th airport hotel and the eighth in Liverpool. Following a £2m renovation, it has 100 rooms, a bar/café, three meeting rooms and on-site parking.
With this year marking Travelodge’s 30th anniversary in Merseyside, the company has celebrated by naming the hotel floors and meeting rooms after top Scousers Cilla Black, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Paul O’Grady, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Steven Gerrard and Ken Dodd.
The new hotel offers a comprehensive small-conference package for its three meeting rooms, each of which can accommodate up to 25 people. The package includes refreshments, lunch and wi-fi.
The property is being managed by Stacey Coleclough, who joined Travelodge as a guestroom cleaner in 2009 and has successfully climbed the career ladder at the company into a senior position.
Another local element at the opening was the presence of Travelodge regional director for the North Nicola Stevens, born and raised in Liverpool and now responsible for Travelodge hotels and nearly 2,000 team members across the north of England.
