    I don't know how old that is, but it sure goes back a long way.

    10 facts(?) about Merseyside Hotels.


    1. Guests once staying at the Adelphi include Winston Churchill, Harold Wilson, Charles Dickens and even Roy Rogers and his horse Trigger. The rumour that Adolf Hitler stayed is probably untrue.
    2. The Hard Days Night hotel has as its logo a depiction of the opening chord of the track "A Hard Day's Night" superimposed on a group of 20 squares. The Hard Day's Night album cover also has 20 squares
    3. The Adelphi hotel was extensively rebuilt in 1912 to cater for passenger's from large cruise liners, whose home port was Liverpool. The most famous of which was the Titanic. The Sefton suite in the Adelphi hotel is an exact replica of the Smoking Lounge aboard the Titanic.
    4. Frank and Robin and are the doormen of the Crowne Plaza Liverpool City Centre and they run their own blog on the Crowne Plaza website. (Well they used to)
    5. The Blenheim Lakeside Hotel is at 37 Aigburth Drive the onetime address of Stuart Sutcliffe one of the original Beatles.
    6. The Anthony Gormley Art installation "Another Place" consisting of 100 life size Iron Men is directly in front of the Royal Hotel Waterloo.
    7. During the first world war The Royal/Clifton hotel was used as a hospital while during the second world war they were used to house evacuated government departments from Liverpool and Manchester.
    8. Leasowe Castle was built for Ferdinand 2nd Heir to the English throne, to allow him to watch horse racing on the Meols sands.
    9. The Crowne Plaza John Lennon Airport hotel uses the adapted terminal building of the old Liverpool Airport. The area where fans welcomed home the Beatles has been kept.
    10. The Devonshire House Hotel was originally a seminary run by nuns including Emma Holt, heiress to the Holt shipping fortune.
