Last year (2015) for the VGSA reunion lunch at Liverpool we stayed at the Liner Hotel and they did a good job of giving the hotel a nautical theme with a reception that looked like a Pursers office on an old liner, various brass bits in the lobby and restaurant like a telegraph, sounding machine and old fashioned binnacle.
All rooms (cabins) and alleyways had prints of various liners on the bulkheads. Just outside ours was the Hilary up the Amazon. (not sure of the artist originally, but my photo).
We also visited the old BSSM Office (or Corn Beef Castle as it was known) and previously the offices of White Star Line (of Titanic fame), now a boutique hotel (what ever that is, but expensive).
Old L&H and BSL nameplates up in the top floor bar, Charts of South America the old Booth & Lamports runs.
You can just see what looks like part of a boiler, but not a ships boiler but possibly from the buildings original heating system.
