A new football-themed luxury hotel is being built in tribute to the greatest goalscorer of all time, Everton legend William Ralph "Dixie" Dean.

Images of the opulent 100-bedroom hotel, along with its luxury restaurant and bar, are featured in The Echo. The hotel is located on Victoria Street in Liverpool.

The Dixie Dean hotel's restaurant and bar, the Number 9, is scheduled for completion in May, with the hotel rooms being completed and opened in July 2019.

Funny thing is, Dixie couldn't have afforded this place!

Makes me wonder what hotels named for modern footballers would be like.

The Messi Hotel would have no maid service.

The Hotel Cristiano would require all guests to take off their shirts on entry.

The Rooney Arms would have special parking for Volkswagens -- and shuttles for everyone else. Also an all-night buffet.

The staff at the Hotel Neymar would be constantly falling over.

At Casa Suarez they'd be biting the guests.

At the Hotel Ramos they'd be kicking them out.

.............and in the Gerrard hotel the floors'd be as slippy as fuck!

The Sky hotel would be managed by clueless idiots with Paul Merson behind the bar talking unadulterated garbage to the guests.

The Martinez Hotel would be...... well, it'd be phenomenal!

The Carragher - speciality the spit roast.

And the Silva Hotel would have its moments.

Brent, the "Carragher speciality" might attract TWer's, as we struggle to get our gobs around the fucking we've endured by Billy boy down the years.

And at the Hibbo Casino, when there's a score, everyone riots!

The Vernon Pool would be opened by Rita Littlewood I think she'd Cope.

The David Moyes Hotel

With a sign outside:

Shortly moving to larger premises in Manchester.

The Moyes hotel USP; "The management reserve the right to bring a knife to any gunfight that might break out!"

The Titanic.

Goes down well with the locals.

The Mourinho. A Special place that eventually starts to wear on you.

The Rhino Inn. Guests under 23 only.

The Kroldrup. You will only appear there once. (Chinese franchise: The Li Weifeng.)

The Pickford. You will absolutely lose it at the bar.

Recently booked a room at Kepa’s hotel. Waited ages to check in but the previous guests refused to leave. It was all apparently a misunderstanding.

Then we stayed at Ranieri’s. It had one good room, previous occupied by Nigel Pearson, but the rest of them were shit.

The Riquelme Hotel. No matter how many times you try, you will never be able to book.

I'm looking at the picture of the hotel interior and I'm not at all sure Dixie would have bothered with the place, it looks poncey to me, a bit "French Boudoir".

Dixie was a motorbike rider in leathers, a rugby player's physique, a tough lad!

More Hell's Angels than French Boudoir.

Don @17, don't forget to mention the ceilings: they're all made of glass and signs all over the room telling you that no matter how hard you try, they can not be broken.

The Roy Vernon Hotel where guests will be permitted to have a ciggy ( or a Siggy if that's your preference) in the shower
Ray Roche
25 Posted 09/03/2019 at 08:04:49
The Mourinho, Le Hotel Le Sulk, where sneering staff look down their nose at you,
Fabinho’s, where the bar facia is fuckin’ big row of plastic teeth.

Or the Hotel Everton, a circular affair with no corners because, well, we’re crap at them.

The Kenwright California: you can check-out any time you like but you can never leave.

The kenwright, rooms have been available for investment for 20 years but if you want to rent or buy one it comes with an immovable Bill lounging in your pool, in your rubber ring, drinking your cocktails, inviting his mates. Every. Single. Day.

IBt48 Mike #21,

Is that the Riquelme Airport Hotel?

Frank Crewe
31 Posted 09/03/2019 at 09:59:52
The Henry Hotel. Book now because we close in three months.
The Neville. The manager thinks he knows how to run a hotel but actually he doesn't have a clue.

Derek Knox

The " Schneiderlin Suite " one of our most expensive on offer, guests regularly report that things often go missing, services very rarely function correctly, no room service, so why bother?
Seb Niemand
33 Posted 09/03/2019 at 11:11:13
The Brian Labone Suite - very classy, but it never gets booked.
Jimmy Hogan

AKA the People's Hotel. Christ how we've over-egged that cliche. While we're at it, perhaps we could rename the pies, the People's Pies, the programmes could be the People's Programmes and the toilets could be "the People's pisser"
Paul Burns

The Heysal Hotel where the cowardly, management rats blame everything on the National Front and Chelsea fans and take the blame for nothing while wallowing in self pity.

The Martinez hotel with incredible, incredibly service

The RS-themed one is called The Shitz.

The Kenwright Hotel is a timeshare. Good investment near Walton Hall Park, also the town centre and Knowsley area. Not exactly built but your deposit will be ringfenced and work about to start any day now...

The Salah Inn would be a real dive...

The Richarlison Inn operates with a high and a low season. High season is August to November. Then it's a top notch stay. Low season Desember to May is really crap.

Erm right... (You started all that, Mike Gaynes!)

Anyway, great that his legend lives on.

Head Waiter — Marco Silva
Boiler Room Stoker — William Kenwright
Wine Waiter — Jordan Pickford (and tell him not to flap at the bloody tray)
General waiters and dogsbodies — Take your pick from the dross on the pitch this afternoon.

"Dunc's Diner" has got that certain ring to it! The new stadium could be called "The Dean Arena" — that's got a ring to it too!

Stayed a night at Mina Motel, it was shocking... I had to do my own vacuum cleaning, the missus had a headache.

I complained that my room was a bit stuffy …. the manager said he was sorry, but: 'The window only opens twice a year'.

Needs to be turned into a Betty Ford type clinic for EFC supporters. This will enable us to be treated during the summer for depression / anxiety and EFC related stress.

The Organised Trips are excellent -

Fishing with Hibbo - Bramley Moore Dock.
Seminars with Osman and Kilbane - How to become a pundit and talk the talk. - Special guest appearance of one Gary Linaker every Blue Moon.
Rooneys Night Walk - Where the Pensioners Hang Out.
Visit the RS and Piss up the Wall with Big Dunc. Nose pegs optional.
Visit Goodison and Lose all Hope with your guide BK.
Meet the Ambassadors - Snods and Diamond take you on a golfing trip around Ainsdale / Birkdale Courses.
Visit The Trophy Room with Doreen the Silver Polishing Lady - ignoring the the tumbleweed and empty cabinets.
EiTC welcomes you to a Real Blue Success with The CEO.

Children can be left with Dear Pickers who will teach them to pull faces, poke out their tongue and how to get on the tits of those who support you - in the Act Like A Child Nursery.

Finally visit the grave of Dixie himself and listen as he spins and spins.

I’m pleased that a hotel themed on an Everton legend, not an rs name, is being opened in town. Too much of this city has become synonymous with our bastard-child neighbours.

It’s just a pity it was not named “The William Ralph Dean Hotel”.
