On the 28th of February, Hampton by Hilton Liverpool City Centre played host to over 180 specially-invited guests who attended the Somerston Hotels Annual Awards 2013 at a nearby venue. The awards celebrated outstanding achievements in all areas of our business, from Training to Food & Beverage and Sales.
