Plans for a new 9-storey hotel in Dublin city centre have been submitted by property developer Noel Smyth.
The planned 365-room hotel will be operated by budget hotel chain, Motel One, who run 57 hotels in a number of Europe’s cities, including London, Prague, Vienna and Zurich.
In order to build the new hotel, Smyth’s company, Fitzwilliam Real Estate Capital, plans to demolish several buildings on the north side of the city.
In a statement, Alannah Smyth, Director of Fitzwilliam Real Estate Properties said: “This proposed development would ensure the regeneration of an underutilised brownfield urban site in the heart of the city, in an area which has suffered from dereliction.
It will be operated by a company that operates several hotel developments across Europe and internationally and will comprise a high-quality design.”
