Titanic HotelTitanic Hotel of Belfast would be officially open to the public from 10th September onwards.

 

This brand new 119-room luxury hotel combines the features of the former Harland &Wolff Drawing Offices and Headquarters in Titanic Quarter of Belfast. It had been built and restored at a price of €32 million and it sits next to Titanic Belfast that is the newest attraction of the city.

 

It offers breathtaking views of the Harland and Wolff cranes.

 

B&B rates generally start at €153 per room and a package bundling B&B with tickets for Titanic Belfast costs from €196 per room.

 

In this building, all the ‘authentic spaces’ have been carefully retained, according to the hotel including the Telephone Exchange that had welcomed the very first communication of RMS Titanic hitting the iceberg on the night of 14th April, 1912. The Drawing Offices are situated at the front of the hotel, one of them housing its Harland Bar and the other the hotel’s ballroom and heritage experience.

 

Drawing Office One would be hosting a six-week exhibition from Sunday.

 

Thereafter, daily public tours would be offered to showcase the heritage features of the hotel.

 

The other preserved spaces comprise the board room of Harland & Wolff, offices of former directors including Charles Payne, Lord Pirrie and Thomas Andrews and the entrance and lobby of the former directors. Harcourt Developments operates the Titanic Hotel Belfast with a £5 million investment from the Heritage Lottery Fund enabling the restoration of the Drawing Offices.

 

In the last few years, the hotel sector of Belfast has shot up while a new Bullitt Hotel and £6 million extension to the five star Fitzwilliam is already open for business.
