Park Inn expansion continues with Dublin opening

Park Inn, the mid-market hotel brand operated by Rezidor SAS, has expanded its portfolio in Ireland with the opening of Park Inn Dublin. The property currently has 73 rooms, with an additional 20 rooms to be added in 2008/9. Other facilities include a restaurant, a bar, a business centre and meeting and conference facilities including a state-of-the-art auditorium. In addition, the hotel houses the Chimney Viewing Tower with excellent views over the city of Dublin. The hotel, previously operating as Chief O’Neill’s, is located in Dublin’s city centre in an area known as Smithfield, which is the largest purpose-built civic space in Europe and the fastest growing legal and commercial office district in Dublin. Within close proximity to the hotel are shops, restaurants, the Old Jameson Distillery, the Guinness Storehouse and the National Museum of Ireland. Ireland is a key growth market for Rezidor SAS and Park Inn Dublin is the third property under the Park Inn brand, following the openings of both Park Inn Dundalk and Park Inn Mulranny in March 2005. Two further openings are scheduled for 2007 – Park Inn Ballinasloe and Park Inn Newry in Northern Ireland. With the new Park Inn Dublin, the well-established Radisson SAS St. Helen’s Hotel and the new opening later this year of the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel in Dublin, Rezidor SAS will be operating three properties in Ireland’s capital city, giving the company a significant presence in the market place. “The opening of Park Inn Dublin marks a significant development for the Park Inn brand in Ireland and also for Rezidor SAS in the city,” said Rezidor SAS Hospitality vice-president development for the UK and Ireland region Puneet Chhatwal. “With presence now in the mid-market sector and with the opening at the end of the year of the new Radisson SAS Royal Hotel, the second Radisson SAS in the capital, Rezidor SAS will become a significant operator in Dublin’s hotel market.”
