The property was designed to be “the world’s most authentic Titanic-themed hotel.” Of course the tragic tale of the legendary oceanliner, the world’s largest ship when it set sail on its doomed maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, has gone done in history.
The Harland & Wolff Drawing Offices, the earliest parts of these historic buildings, date from the 1880s and over the following 100 years played an important part in the design of many of the world’s most famous ocean liners and the creation of the ‘floating hotel’, influencing the design of many of today’s cruise ships. The Drawing Offices have been converted into function/event space.
Nice touch: The original tiles around the bar are the same as the ones used for Titanic’sswimming pool.
To celebrate the hotel’s grand opening, there’s a special offer of overnight accommodations plus a “1st Class Titanic Breakfast.” Note that a free exhibition, telling the story of the building’s history, will run for six weeks.
