Recently dubbed the United Kingdom's city of culture, Liverpool is attracting more visitors than ever before. The northern powerhouse is among the UK's most forward-thinking and dynamic cities, particularly when it comes to the environment. What was once one of the industrial heartlands of Europe has now become one of its greenest cities. This responsible ethic has filtered through proudly to the city's hotels, with an abundance of green and sustainable places to stay across the city.
A Commitment to the Environment
While there are a number of legal requirements in place when it comes to the sustainability of hotels in the UK, a number of hotels in Liverpool are taking the initiative to go several steps further.
The Hard Day's Night Hotel is a pioneer in green tourism, making a firm commitment to the environment. Their strict environmental policy sees the hotel taking steps such as the eradication of company cars, use of microfiber cleaning methods and rigorous recycling.
The result is a smoothly run hotel that gives guests the complete Beatles experience with a totally clear conscience.
Food is one of the most important aspects of a memorable holiday and today's hotels try to reflect that in their restaurants. Not only can guests expect a high standard of cuisine without leaving their hotel, they can also expect their menu to be ethical and environmentally friendly.
Eating local is one of the easiest ways to be sustainable during your holiday. The north-west of England produces so much exquisite food, from fresh fish to sumptuous seasonal veg, guests will be spoiled for choice come dinner time.
A Touch of Luxury
Environmental awareness has become such a priority in modern society that compromise is no longer part of the tourism industry's vocabulary when it comes to being green. Green and sustainable hotels in Liverpool now offer outstanding and luxurious facilities, and it needn't cost the earth.
The Crowne Plaza Hotel is a fine example of the kind of luxury that's on offer from Liverpool's green hotels. The hotel boasts an extensive fitness suite, with panoramic views across the city, and a beautiful indoor swimming pool.
