Doors open to the Grand Central Hotel Belfast
TODAY sees the opening of the Grand Central Hotel, the largest and most expensively constructed hotel project ever seen in Northern Ireland.
Residents of Belfast have watched over the past two years as Windsor House has transformed from an unloved office block to the key feature on Belfast’s skyline, with its unmistakeable Seahorse logos and shimmering charcoal panels visible across the city.
The Northern Ireland hotel scene is enjoying a period of rapid expansion, and the 300 opulently appointed bedrooms in Grand Central mark the greatest leap forward to date.
The hotel is much more than this, though. With its dramatic “double height” space on the ground and first floor levels, it is international in outlook, and cosmopolitan in feel. No expense has ben spared on its marble flooring, its plush fabrics and its dramatic interior lighting.
The £53 million committed to this project by Hastings Hotels has created an unmistakeably upscale venue for locals and visitors alike.
The Hotel has been constructed on time and on budget by local builders Graham’s of Dromore, with design being led by Belfast architects RPP. The Bank of Ireland has assisted with project funding. Many local firms can take great credit for their part in ensuring the doors open today.
