Belfast targets aggressive hotel expansion

Up to 20 new hotels are planned for Belfast, including a four-storey, 17-room boutique property at Bank Square.

According to a report in the Belfast Telegraph, the increase in the number of proposed hotels for the city is being fuelled by a Government push to increase the level of beds available in Belfast to accommodate an expected larger influx of of both business visitors and tourists.

If all 20 projects go ahead as planned, this will mean an increase of around 2,500 rooms for Belfast. Several projects that have been announced in recent months include the £30m, four-star, 200-room Grand Central Hotel and plans to turn the former Harland & Wolff drawing offices, where the ill-fated Titanic ship was designed, into an 84-room boutique hotel.
