Here we count down our Hitchcock themed hotel rooms based on his most thrilling pieces of work.
#5 Notorious 1935
One of Hitchcock’s favourite leading ladies plays the Notorious Alicia Huberman in this masterful love story turned spy thriller.
Deep undercover, Alicia becomes entangled in increasingly more dangerous situations.
The entire movie is rife with the cinematic mastery that Hitchcock became famous for and draws viewers into the seemingly hopeless love affair, spiced with a risky espionage plot line.

All the top modern facilities are to hand as well with a huge flat screen TV and small kitchenette.
Perfect for a small group of horror fans looking for a thrilling stay in Liverpool.
#4 Suspicion 1941
Suspicion is a classic story of boy meets girl, boy marries girl, boy lies to girl and girl suspects boy of plotting to murder her!
Leading man Cary Grant fills the role of playboy Johnnie wins over everyday girl Lina, whom he suspects has access to inheritance from her wealthy father but it’s not long before the truths come out.
Throughout the rest of the movie Lina’s suspicion of her new husband begin to mount and Hitchcock manages to engage the audience and succeeds in matching their suspicions to hers.
A famous scene is when Johnnie is ascending the stairs with a glass of milk for Lina. The audience’s suspicions heighten without verbal prompting because the glass is illuminated.
At Arthouse Hotel, the Suspicion themed hotel room has been matched to Hitchcock’s classic style black leather finishes mimicking his perfectly tailored trademark black suits, splashes of red to add some drama.
The Suspicion hotel room sleeps up to six guests with a functional kitchenette and stunning ensuite bathroom.
#3 Vertigo 1958
Perhaps the defining movie moment of his illustrious career Hitchcock uses Vertigo to explore the fragility of the human mind and the ease at which it can be manipulated.
It has been recognised as the best film ever made and ranks as the ninth-greatest American movie of all time.
Thanks to special camera tricks such as the infamous dolly zoom, and Hitchcock’s fondness for French literature, Vertigo is a movie masterpiece with a dark theme at its core.
Plenty of theories have been drawn up as to what the movie signifies some include portrayals of male aggression, the deconstruction of femininity and the most modern perhaps is that the movie is the all in the imagination of the main male lead.
Our Vertigo themed hotel room can sleep up to four guests in utter luxury.
Located in Liverpool’s most popular nightlife district, Vertigo provides perfect group accommodation in Liverpool for those who enjoy a spooky movie.
#2 Psycho 1960
A movie with the most iconic scene in cinema history, Psycho most defiantly deserves the runner up spot in our countdown to most thrilling Hitchcock movies.
This amazing movie plot has been at the core of so many popular thrillers and set the benchmark for acceptable levels of on screen violence.
Typical of Hitchcock our leading lady Janet Leigh is stranded in a secluded motel after stealing from her boss. Hitchcock often made his victims seem as though they somehow deserved their fate, another directorial technique adopted by modern movie makers.
Leigh’s character eventually succumbs to the evils of Norman Bates, and one of the most terrifying and disturbing movies follows.
Our stunning Psycho themed hotel room sleeps up to four guests and in the city centre of Liverpool. There are full modern facilities available to guests including a huge flat screen TV and stunning ensuite bathrooms.
Worlds apart from the accommodation experience at Bates Motel for sure.
#1 The Birds 1963
Our number one movie in our countdown to the most thrilling pieces of Hitchcock’s work is, of course, The Birds.
Starting the movie with a clever bit of movie trickery, Hitchcock lulls the audience into a false sense of security with playful comedy technique known as screwball comedy.
After setting the comedic tone of a love story Hitchcock then plunges his audiences into unimaginable terror and new realms of bird related fear.
Tippi Hendren who played the lead role in The Birds was said to have been shaken after scenes filmed with Hitchcock due to these little-known facts from the filming of The Birds.
The famed telephone box scene where Hitchcock threw in a realistic looking bird prop smashing the glass was not scripted, neither was there meant to be live birds in the attic scene towards the end of the movie.
It was Hitchcock’s style to shock and amaze; his talent was clear and he captivated his audiences by leaving them wanting more.
The Birds room at Arthouse Hotel will do just the opposite, giving you everything you could need or want during a stay in Liverpool.
This stunning movie themed hotel room is exceptionally outfitted with stunning décor and the latest modern facilities. Sleeping up to four guests The Birds room is our top choice for a group of thriller movie fans looking to stay in Liverpool in style.
