Ok first of all don’t even talk to me if you haven’t pretended to be Jack Dawson and screamed “I’m the KING OF THE WORLD!!!” every time you’ve been on a boat – whether it’s a tinny or a ferry in the harbour. I’ve done it. You’ve done it. You’re a liar if you say you haven’t.
Don’t let me near boats, hey.
Now you can reenact every other moment from the iconic film about the Big Ship That Couldn’t Sink But Did Anyway (Titanic) with the new Titanic Hotel Belfast which opened in September in the Northern Ireland city.
The hotel is a $47million restoration of the actual headquarters of Harland & Wolff – the team who built the OG Titanic. The space includes the original drawing offices, which have been converted into a gorgeous ballroom, bar, and restaurant, and feature spaces from the original building repurposed into concierge and private dining rooms.
The rooms themselves are art-deco chic, and tastefully nautical, which I didn’t realise was a thing that could happen. From junior suites right up the the penthouse, each room replicates the vibe that the posho upper-class, DeWitt Bukater types of the original oceanic journey would have experienced. No scurvy around these parts, folks.
Belfast’s newest luxury hotel, Titanic Hotel Belfast, opened its doors to the public today, Sunday 10 September at 12noon. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ After almost two years of restoration, construction and preservation of the former Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices and Headquarters, the £28m hotel is ready to show the world the amazing history behind Queen’s Island and the shipbuilding industry in Northern Ireland. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ The 119-room hotel will see Adrian McNally take the helm as General Manager after being appointed by operator Harcourt Developments in June 2017. Adrian will lead a team of 90 employees, including apprentices from Belfast Metropolitan College and students of Ulster University and Galway Mayo Institute of Technology. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ @titanichotelbelfast #titanicbelfast #belfast #instagood #tagyourself #tagsforlikes #follow #titanic #luxury #hotel #love by @love_belfast
The hotel is smack bang next to the Titanic Belfast museum, and a bunch of the suites have views of the big landmark building. The museum has got *the* staircase. You know the one. Seriously the building is a spectacular monster of a shiny, ship-like structure. It’s real hard to miss.
"Did you know that the famous staircase, which was among the most luxurious appointments on the ship (@titanicbelfast), was inspired by the staircase at Belfast City Hall which can be visited today? Photo tip: If you fancy a picture with the replica a la Rose and Jack, treat yourself to an Afternoon Tea at the Titanic Suite available every Sunday, and don't miss an opportunity to snap a shot! ???? #tiptuesday #grandstaircase #visitbelfast #belfast #belfastcity #titanicbelfast #titanic #uk #northernireland #instatravel #instadaily #instabelfast #architecture" by @visitbelfast
Titanic Hotel Belfast are currently offering a sweet opening deal, where you can book rooms from $184, which is a bloody cheap rate if you want to recreate that scene in the car with your loved one, or just have a bunch of champers and get someone to draw you like one of their French girls.
Just make sure you leave enough room for your mates because that door was TOTALLY big enough for two, Rose.
