LIVERPOOL, UK -  Marcus Magee has been appointed as the general manager of Hilton Liverpool which is due to open in spectacular style this autumn.

Magee who has over 20 year's hotel managerial experience, mostly gained while working for the global hotel chain, is overseeing preparations for the hotel's grand opening while appointing the operations team which will manage the 200+ strong workforce.

Magee's first role with Hilton was as deputy manager for the Hilton in Leicester, and he has since managed other Hilton hotels including Bromsgrove, Newport and Puckrup Hall. His most recent position was as area manager for the Aberdeen and Craigendarroch hotels.

Marcus commented: "Over the past year Liverpool has enjoyed a renaissance following its 2008 Capital of Culture accolade; as a result there is so much more national and international appeal for the city.

"Hilton has always planned to open a hotel in Liverpool and when this site on the edge of Liverpool ONE, overlooking the Albert Dock, is the ideal location for our first Hilton property.

"The months ahead will be busy as we ready the hotel for our autumn opening, and I am really relishing the challenges of my new role. The people and businesses in the city have also already made me feel so welcome."

The tone inside the landmark hotel will be of contemporary and understated elegance, with attentive but discreet service to match. Over 215 contemporary, yet classic rooms will be available to guests, including executive rooms, junior suites and a presidential suite, all of which will have breathtaking views over the city's most celebrated attractions including the Albert Dock.

The Hilton Liverpool will also have an extensive food and beverage offering from its Exchange Restaurant and Pima Bar which is complete with a spacious sun terrace for guests to enjoy.

Furthermore, the hotel will offer a vast range of first-class facilities and services, including a well-equipped conference and events suite, complete with all of the latest audio-visual equipment. The suite will provide flexible space for a variety of business conventions, and a dedicated event organisation team will be available to help delegates plan their event down to the finest detail.

The Hilton Liverpool is also set to become a popular wedding venue. The spectacular ballroom is perfect for celebrations, with catering for up to 300 people and floor to ceiling windows allowing natural light to flood in.

All wedding clients will also benefit from an expert wedding coordinator, complimentary overnight accommodation for the bride and groom on their wedding night, including breakfast, with reduced accommodation rates for guests. The hotel is fully licensed to perform both religious and civil ceremonies.

Rooms will be available from £89 (room only and subject to availability) and booking details can be found by visiting www.hilton.com/liverpool or calling 0151 708 4200.
