The Adelphi is Liverpool’s most famous hotel. It had its heyday when the luxury liners would sail into the Port with its rich passengers, when the accommodations and the meals were luxurious and very expensive. It now serves as the hub for International Beatle Week every August.

It originally opened in 1826. And the present hotel is the third one on this site. It’s a seven storey building and has welcomed as its guests over the years many celebrities, including Sir Winston Churchil, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Judy Garland, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, and Roy Rogers, who once rode his horse “Trigger” into the Lobby. And of course, The Beatles.

My Uncle, Willy Conlon, who had two Opticians businesses in Liverpool, Conlon and Sons, and lived “over the water” in Heswall, rented a permanent suite there, to stay overnight when he was kept late at the office, and was treated royally as a semi-resident. I can remember visiting him there, and being astonished at the luxury, the service, the towels, oh, the towels, that seemed a mile thick to me.
