A high-design oasis in central Belfast, the intimate Fitzwilliam Hotel has 130 rooms thoughtfully adorned with designer textures and fabrics — think checkerboard print pillows and tufted velvet headboards — and super powerful “sunflower” showers (a bigger head than the standard rain shower). The Restaurant has a philosophy as straightforward as its name: communal tables where guests share meals prepared with local products. The super-sophisticated bar has copper-clad lighting, glimpse window and real crystal glasses to hold a variety of handcrafted cocktails and interesting international wines.
In the Area
The hotel is close to all sorts of tourist attractions and local pit stops and watering holes. The historic Grand Opera House puts on shows ranging from Michael Jackson tribute shows to kid-friendly productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. The Lyric Theater skews more contemporary, putting on groundbreaking productions for all ages. A few area restaurants are challenging the perception of Ireland’s cooking being limited to bland meat and two veg: CoCo aims to serve beautifully-presented comfort food and the Potted Hen is a critics’ darling.

I was greeted at the desk by a lovely gentleman called Simon who was very friendly and is an absolute credit to your Hotel. Absolutely gorgeous room and the comfiest bed I've ever slept in. The hotel is in a great location and in walking distance to Queens University and other attractions. Fabulous reception area too.
Fantastic location within walking distance of most of Belfasts beautiful attractions whilst all the time returning to a very warm and welcoming atmosphere in a quality property we would recommend this hotel to all our friends and are looking forward to returning
The Fitzwilliam is very convenient for the city centre. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The food is really good and the rooms are very comfortable. It is an excellent hotel. Would highly recommend it.
Friendly staff who don't come across fake nice. Everyome happily engaged and nothing was ever a chore.Rooms are more then well equipped and wanted for nothing.Cooled breakfast wasn't the best I've ever had, but that's just me being picky.
