American hotel firm Marriott has opened its first venue in Northern Ireland with the launch of a €30 million AC Hotel at Belfast's City Quays.
As reported by The Irish Times, the 188-bedroom, four-star hotel also features the first restaurant operated in Ireland by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Christophe Novelli and is the latest phase of an £80 million investment programme by Belfast Harbour that also involves the development of a number of new offices, cafés, restaurants and waterside walkways.
Commenting on the AC Hotel's launch, chairman of Belfast Harbour Dr. David Dobbin said that it "marks the fruition of a core strand" of Belfast Harbour's strategic vision for the quay's future.
