Liverpool’s Dixie Dean Hotel, paying homage to Everton FC legend William Ralph ‘Dixie’ Dean, has officially opened by Signature Living with a celebration evening.
The 45-bedroom designer hotel in Victoria Street celebrated the completion of the first phase developments which includes the 160-cover “No.9” restaurant, after the shirt number worn by the much-loved football hero.
Dixie Dean scored 349 goals for Everton in 399 appearances from 1925 to 1937, including 60 in one season. Birkenhead-Born Dean also played for Tranmere Rovers. The hotel is opposite the Shankly Hotel which has been put up for sale by Signature.
The hotel, in the former Jerome and Carlisle building, also includes a bar and opulent function suites for football-inspired weddings. It will welcome its first guests on July 19.
Signature founder Lawrence Kenwright, said: “The Dixie Dean, just like the Shankly Hotel, will become landmark destination in Liverpool and add to the city’s vibrant hotel and tourism offer. It was great to celebrate the completion of the first phase of the development and we very much look forward to welcoming the first guests.”
