AC Hotels confirms Belfast opening

UK: AC Hotels has confirmed April as the opening date for its new Belfast Hotel

Global lifestyle brand AC Hotels by Marriott is set to open its first hotel in northern Ireland in April.

The contemporary-luxe four-star AC Hotel Belfast will be the first Marriott in Northern Ireland, the first AC Hotel by Marriott on the island of Ireland, and the first purpose-built AC Hotel in the UK.

The hotel will feature 188 guestrooms and will offer AC Marriott guest services including gym, library, meeting facilities and AC Lounge. Jean-Christophe Novelli will open a bespoke-for-Belfast brasserie in the hotel, the first restaurant the multi-Michelin-starred and five-out-of-five AA Rosette award-winning chef will open in Ireland.

The company has also confirmed the appointment of Lisa Steele as General Manager of the new £25million property. Steele holds management experience in a number of leading Belfast hospitality venues.

Steele said: “AC Hotels by Marriott is a unique concept. The design is thoughtful and purposeful, marrying European sophistication and contemporary elegance to provide a stylish, simplified and frictionless experience which perfectly reflects the needs of today’s busy hotel guest and user. I’m absolutely delighted to be part of the team bringing this compelling new offering to the local market.  Work is on schedule and we are on track to open in April, and the timing really couldn’t be better with Belfast and Northern Ireland as a region enjoying unprecedented and wholly-deserved global recognition as a must-visit destination.”
