More than 100 new jobs have been created at the 237-bedroom hotel at Brunswick Street, which is attracting guests from all over the world.
General Manager of the hotel Mike Gatt said, “We have been very fortunate that it has been well received. Bookings are coming to us at a regular rate. Guests are coming from far and wide. We had three tour groups yesterday – two from China and one from North America. For many years, the investment in Belfast was really non-existent. We have entered a new era. Hotels are just playing catch-up. Looking at occupancy levels across Belfast, we still have a bit to go.”
Mr. Gatt added, “We are delighted to officially open the Maldron Hotel Belfast City. Today marks the culmination of many months of work by our contractors and by hotel staff, but we now have a hotel which we are all incredibly proud of. We have already had a hugely positive response from the customers who have stayed with us and we look forward to welcoming many more in the months and years ahead. Our city centre location, four-star comfort, state-of-the-art technology, high levels of service and best quality food and drink mark the hotel out as a great place to stay.”
Maldron Hotel Belfast City is great for both business and leisure travel, boasting of an unmatched level of service for everyone. A second Maldron Hotel in Northern Ireland is located in Londonderry and another at Belfast International Airport.
In England, Maldron Hotel Newcastle is scheduled to open early next year.
The Belfast Lord Mayor said, “Tourism is boosting our economy and offering Belfast people rewarding career options. So I’d also like to pay tribute to the Dalata Hotel Group for their vision in partnering with us to deliver a Hotel Employment Academy, to help people who are currently out of work develop their skills and find jobs.”
