Titanic Hotel opens

After two years of construction and restoration, Belfast's Titanic Hotel  opened to the public yesterday.


The 119-room  luxury hotel incorporates the former Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices and Headquarters in Belfast's Titanic Quarter.
Built and restored at a cost of £28/€32 million, it is situated next to Titanic Belfast,  and offers views of the Harland & Wolff cranes.
 B&B rates start at £140/€153 per room, while a package bundling B&B with tickets for Titanic Belfast costs from £180/€196 per room.
All "authentic spaces" have been retained in the build, the hotel says, including the Telephone Exchange, which received the first communication of RMS Titanic hitting the iceberg on the night of April 14, 1912.
The Drawing Offices are located at the front of the hotel - one housing its Harland Bar, the other the hotel’s ballroom and heritage experience.
 Other preserved spaces include Harland & Wolff's board room, its former directors’ entrance and lobby, and the offices of former former directors. 
Titanic Hotel Belfast is operated by Harcourt Developments, with a £5m investment from the Heritage Lottery Fund aiding restoration of the Drawing Offices.
