I could not have been happier with my hotel choice.
The Resident Liverpool (formerly The Nadler Liverpool): At 29 Seel Street in the Rope Walk district, this is a small boutique hotel in a renovated warehouse. Very reasonably priced, this was a great spot from which to explore the city. My room was excellent. The only negative was that they had no restaurant, but I ate at the Novotel a few blocks away and there is a Starbucks two blocks away. There is a nearby restaurant that will also bring food directly to your room if you want to eat in. They have two hotels in Kensington and Soho in London.
I would also check out the contemporary Hope Street Hotel on a future trip. I had dinner at the London Carriage Works Restaurant and very much liked the hotel and location. It comes highly recommended.
