Malta-based hotel operator Corinthia Hotels International (CHI) and Vermont Developments have signed technical services and operations agreements to bring the internationally renowned Ramada Plaza hotel brand to Liverpool for the first time.

The 173-room Ramada Plaza Liverpool will form the center-piece of Vermonts 100m scheme, The Quarter, adjacent to the Citys new Arena and Convention Center. 

The hotel will be aimed at corporate and high end leisure customers and will feature a fine dining restaurant, spa and state of the art business center with conference facilities. More than 150 full time jobs will be created by the scheduled opening in June 2010.

Mark Connor, chief executive of Vermont Developments, said, The successful conclusion of these negotiations is a major milestone for our development at The Quarter. Ramada Plaza is one of the worlds foremost hotel brands and to secure such a prestigious hotel operator as CHI is a testament to the quality of the scheme and Liverpools growing international reputation. We are looking forward to seeing the Ramada Plaza hotel at The Quarter providing a welcome addition to the emerging hotel strip along Liverpools waterfront.

Tony Potter chief executive officer of CHI, added, Ever since our joint venture with Wyndham Hotel Group, which names us as the hotel management company for Wyndham Hotel Group managed hotels in Europe, Middle East and Africa region operating under the Corinthia, Ramada Plaza and Wyndham brands, we have moved swiftly to pioneer all three brands in new destinations, with a Corinthia Hotel property in Romania, a Wyndham hotel in Morocco, a Ramada Hotel and Suites in Dubai and four Ramada Plaza hotels in The Czech Republic, Hungary, Tunisia and now the United Kingdom. We are confident that this trend will be sustained with further additions to our managed portfolio over the next few years, making our management capabilities amongst the strongest in the region.

The Quarter is one of Liverpools most eagerly anticipated new destination developments. The mixed-use scheme will form a dramatic gateway into Liverpool city center, featuring a graceful 22-storey residential tower, office accommodation, retail and leisure space and a new public square.
