Description

The AA 5 Red Star Merchant Hotel in Belfast is situated in the heart of Belfast city centre’s historic Cathedral Quarter. The grandeur of the original Grade A listed building is complemented by an elegant art deco inspired wing with a multitude of exciting amenities.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, The Merchant Hotel is closed to the public until further notice. For more information, visit facebook.com/themerchanthotel.

The hotel includes a stunning luxury spa, a rooftop gymnasium with panoramic city views, a dedicated meeting and events suite, a fabulous jazz bar - Berts, an award-winning cocktail bar, a cosy pub - The Cloth Ear, and a two AA Rosette Great Room Restaurant. Adorned with the finest furniture and impeccable finishes, The Merchant delivers opulence at every turn.

Since opening in the Cathedral Quarter in April 2006, The Merchant Hotel has breathed new life into Belfast city centre, delighting guests with first class service, unrivalled luxury accommodation and an unparalleled food and drink offering. The Merchant Hotel has accumulated over 100 prestigious accolades, including the AA 5 Red Star Rating, the UK Hotel Awards Best UK Hotel and World’s Best Cocktail Bar at the Tales of the Cocktail Spirit Awards.

With 62 deluxe bedrooms and suites in total, the ‘Victorian Splendour’ bedrooms located in the original part of the Grade A listed buildings are perfectly complemented by the ‘Deco Decadence’ bedrooms which each feature bespoke furniture pieces by iconic designers and are finely finished with works from renowned local photographic artist Gavin Miller, who was specially commissioned to create the works of art that grace the walls.

Step out of the hotel and you step into the historic Cathedral Quarter with its bustling culture and arts scene, cosy pubs and contemporary restaurants.  The Merchant Hotel is in a fantastic location for visiting a number of tourist attractions including the Titanic Quarter, Belfast City Hall and the Ulster Museum along with Victoria Square shopping centre. The Giants Causeway is just over an hour from the hotel and makes a great day trip along with the various Game of Thrones locations.  The Merchant is also perfectly positioned to access a variety of golf courses, including Royal Portrush and Royal County Down.

The Merchant Hotel is embarking on an exciting refurbishment of our iconic Cocktail Bar and magnificent Great Room Restaurant. Consequently, from March 2nd until the first week of April 2020 both areas will be inaccessible to guests. For more information visit: themerchanthotel.com/information/the-merchant-hotel-renovations/
