AC Marriott Hotel

A four-star, contemporary-luxe hotel at the gateway to Belfast Harbour

The AC Marriott hotel in Belfast is a new 9 storey, 188 bed hotel situated by the River Lagan and forms part of the Belfast Harbour Commission’s City Quays masterplan for the redevelopment of the riverside area.  The building presents a striking addition to the City Quays in a modern style, in context with the recently completed City Quays 1 and 2 buildings.

The hotel is the first AC brand by Marriott in the UK. The accommodation includes a gym, bar and restaurant. Capturing the contemporary, elegant and European-inspired essence of the brand, features bespoke-for-Belfast include an open-air terrace designed to capitalise on its spectacular location with waterfront and wider cityscape views and a custom-built “Novelli” kitchen and restaurant.
RPP’s in-house team of Interior Designers developed and co-ordinated a contemporary aesthetic throughout the hotel; in the reception with its bespoke feature lighting, in the AC bar, lounge and in the “Novelli” restaurant. The furnishings and decor are unique to the AC Hotel Belfast and in keeping with the global AC by Marriott design brand.
The design team worked closely with clients, the Belfast Harbour Commission and with Marriott’s design team to produce another dazzling addition to the AC Hotel chain and to the Belfast Harbour’s City Quays development.
