The work will complete stage four of the five-stage plan for the leading hotel, which recently benefitted from a £1million refurbishment, which included a complete transformation of its Grand Ballroom, lobby and Laganview Suite.
The news comes on the back on the announcement by owners, Andras Hotels, Belfast’s biggest hotel group, that they will soon commence work on the new Hampton by Hilton Hotel, which will see an investment of £12million into the city.
Supported by Danske Bank, work is expected to take six weeks and will see a major upgrade of the hotel bar and conference centre and creation of a new pre-function area to the Malone wedding suite.
Rajesh Rana, Director of Andras Hotels commented; “We are delighted that this next stage of the investment at the Ramada Plaza will soon commence.
“This refurbishment is design-led, with designers Philip Rodgers providing a unique look that will feature handmade fittings and bespoke items of furniture and lighting that will ensure that the Ramada Plaza is offering customers the very best it can and compliments the rest of the hotel’s exceptional standard of interiors.
“This will be a 5-star level of fit-out, guaranteeing that we can provide a wide range of top class events facilities to suit our clients tastes and requirements.
“We anticipate that the upgraded conference centre and new-look Malone Suite will secure further business and gala events to the hotel and we look forward to strengthening our burgeoning conferencing and wedding markets.”
Located at Shaw’s Bridge the Ramada Plaza is Belfast’s largest conference facility with 21 separate suites and one of the leading events and banqueting venues in Northern Ireland. All meeting rooms in the 2nd floor conference centre and the conference reception area will be renovated and work will be carried out by local designers and contractors.
The hotel offers facilities for events hosting up to 900 guests and provides clients with the use of the latest technology, luxury meeting rooms, private dining areas and executive lounges.
