Bottom Line

The 148-room Park Inn by Radisson Belfast is a mid-range property centrally located in downtown Belfast. Its proximity to attractions, transport, and business headquarters brings a mixed crowd of corporate and leisure travelers. The vibrant rooms are decorated in primary colors that feel a bit childish, but they're contemporary and have desks, flat-screen TVs, and tea- and coffee-making facilities, plus rollaway beds in Family rooms. An atmospheric bar and restaurant are highlights, though note that the space gets busy, particularly on weekends. A gym, sauna, and steam room are bonuses, while parking is off-site. Budget-conscious travelers should compare with the more competitively priced Premier Inn Belfast City Centre (Alfred Street) Hotel.

Scene

Central, contemporary hotel with happening bar and restaurant

Travelers choose the Park Inn for its excellent, central location. However, this translates to a lot of people filling the property, and at times, large groups can disrupt the pace, especially at breakfast. Generic decor in a youthful color scheme of red, blue, green, and yellow fill the lobby and rooms, while the New York-inspired grill restaurant is far more handsome and modern. Leather booths and a fireplace are cozy amid red lighting, black ceilings, and black-and-white portraits. Weekend DJ sets get the party going, and a beer garden is popular in summers. Travelers seeking intimacy might fare better elsewhere, but considering amenities on-site, the hotel generally gets the thumbs-up. 

Location

In downtown Belfast, near City Hall and attractions

The hotel's side-street location is quiet, but central. Concert venue Ulster Hall is a one-minute walk away, and historic City Hall is five minutes farther. Equally close are headquarters for major corporations. Both Europa bus and Great Victoria Street train stations are a five-minute walk, and Belfast Central Train Station is 11 minutes farther. Belfast is a happening city with a strong maritime history, having been the building site for the sinking Titanic. Exhibits filling the Titanic Quarter are a 30-minute walk, or shorter bus/taxi ride, and it's half that for the bar-packed Cathedral Quarter. Victoria Square shopping center is 12 minutes on foot. It's the same time by bus for interactive science exhibits at W5. Belfast City Airport is a 13-minute drive, or 20-minute bus ride. Allow half-hour drives from Belfast International Airport, or 90 minutes by public transport.

Rooms

Clean rooms, but they're lackluster and generic

Starting at 258 square feet (24 square meters), rooms are generic, but comfortable. They have a palette of primary colors that results in a childish feel -- think red or blue carpeting with opposite accent walls and drapes, simple blond-wood furniture, and red pleather armchairs. Colorful artwork and striped bed runners add to the bold decor mix. White bathrooms have a few red-tile accents, black countertops, walk-in showers or shower/tub combos, towels, hairdryers, and wall-dispensed soaps. 

Standard amenities include phones, flat-screen TVs, large desks with electrical outlets, kettles for tea- and coffee-making, safes, and AC. Note, no mini-fridges are provided, although vending machines (with alcohol) are located on each floor, and room service is available until late. Cribs can be supplied for a fee. Family Rooms with living areas and rollaway beds are available. Rooms are generally quiet, but with some facing parking lots, they're not all scenic.

Features

Popular bar and grill restaurant, plus a sauna and gym 

Guests flock to the popular RBG Grill & Bar, where all-day drinks and meals are served. Extensive seating fills up fast, especially on weekends, when mezzanine-level DJ sets give the space a club-like vibe. Classic American salads and entrees are well-reviewed, as are the bar's cocktails. Guests can dine al fresco in the greenery-filled and furnished courtyard beer garden, weather-permitting. Kids under 12 eat free when accompanied by a paying adult. At a fee, breakfast buffets offer full cooked and continental choices, including made-to-order eggs, but note, mornings can get crowded. Independent of the hotel, the 24-hour gym is small, but has a sufficient range of equipment. A sauna and steam room are also free to use. Seven equipped meeting rooms can hold up to 120 persons. Note, parking requires a fee and is an 11-minute walk away at the Radisson Blu. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
