Liverpool England L3 1QZ
The Liverpool edition of Malmaison, a chain of British boutique hotels, occupies an 11-story building near the riverfront. The bar pours excellent versions of classic cocktails, while steaks headline the menu in the hotel's brasserie. As one might expect for such a hip establishment, the rooms are dimly lit and make use of some fancy electronic gadgetry. There is plenty of shopping to be had just a 10-minute walk from the hotel.
