Guests at the Grand Central Hotel have the World at their fingertips

THE Grand Central has become the first hotel in Northern Ireland to introduce the digital media service, PressReader, giving guests complimentary access to over 7,000 newspapers and magazines from more than 120 countries.

As well as offering newspapers from around the world in over 60 languages, guests will be able to download from an extensive selection of magazines including Vogue, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, GQ, Good Housekeeping, Men’s Health and Reader’s Digest to name just a few.

The easy-to-use App is available on all smartphones and tablets and guests will automatically receive access when they connect to the Grand Central Hotel’s Wi-Fi network.

Howard Hastings, Managing Director of Hastings Hotels said: “We continue to be committed to providing the very best experience for our guests. When visiting a hotel, whether it is for business or pleasure, it’s always nice to take time to keep up-to-date with the news or switch off with your favourite magazine. Whether enjoying a coffee or lunch in the Grand Café, waiting for a friend in the Seahorse Bar or staying overnight, guests can simply connect to the Grand Central’s Wi-Fi network to download PressReader and have thousands of publications at their fingertips for free. What’s more, the publications can be saved to devices and read later.

I think the PressReader service will be well used, particularly by those visiting from overseas who will appreciate being able to access their local newspaper. For example, our American guests can enjoy reading the Los Angeles Times or New York Post over breakfast while our French guests can peruse Le Monde and Le Figaro.”
