The four-star, 11-storey hotel on Brunswick Street has created 110 new jobs in the city centre and, as parent-group Dalata’s first new-build in almost a decade, represents a £24 million investment for the company.
Demand has been extremely strong at the new hotel which will be at full capacity on Friday night.
It is the group’s fourth hotel in Northern Ireland in a portfolio which includes Maldron Hotel at Belfast International Airport, Maldron Hotel in Londonderry and Clayton Hotel on Ormeau Avenue in Belfast.
The stylish new hotel boasts 237 bedrooms and five state-of-the-art meeting rooms. Complimentary high-speed fibre-optic Wi-Fi, 43” inch interactive plasma TVs, and USB wall plug-ins make the hotel the ideal technological hub for Belfast’s thriving business community.
Mike Gatt, General Manager at the hotel said: “We are delighted to see months of hard work come to fruition with the opening of the new Maldron hotel. “We have something really special to offer with a hotel which has the benefits of a city centre location, four-star comfort, state-of-the-art technology, high levels of service and the best quality food and drink which Maldron has become famous for. Maldron Belfast City has been built with the business and leisure communities at the very forefront of our minds, and we are confident that we can offer an unrivalled level of service to those both visiting the city to work, and those who call Belfast their base – as well as families and couples visiting the city to enjoy its many attractions and leisure offerings.”
Francine O’Hagan, Sales & Marketing Manager at Maldron Hotel Belfast City, said: “The new Maldron offers an exciting new opportunity for our company to expand and grow. We look forward to welcoming both our loyal customers, who know and trust the Maldron name, and new visitors. Our superb location in the heart of Belfast’s thriving city centre means we can provide fantastic accommodation to working-week visitors, fun-seeking families and weekend revellers alike.”
More ventures are in the pipeline for Dalata Group with three new hotels comprising nearly 500 rooms due to open during 2018 in Dublin and Cork. In England, Maldron Hotel Newcastle, comprising 264 rooms, is scheduled to open in early 2019.
CEO of Dalata Group, Pat McCann, said: “2017 was another exciting time for Dalata and I am delighted with the progress we have made. As our company grows we will continue to recognise the importance of investing in our people and ensuring they are highly trained and motivated. 157 people completed development programs with us in 2017 and we will see this number growing in the coming months. We are thrilled to be opening another Dalata hotel here in Belfast, and hugely impressed with the level of talent we have seen throughout our recruitment and staffing process.”
