How the hotel industry has changed in Cardiff

As time goes by things are constantly changing and developing all over the world and the hotel industry certainly is no exception to this. For decades Cardiff has provided some fantastic cheap hotels as well as a great selection of more expensive hotels and apartments for those looking to splash out a little more. It is to be expected that as a city in its own right things are going to change as interests come and go and Cardiff has seen its fair share of developments and renovations over the years.

Generally speaking these changes tend to be relatively slow coming with gradual changes but that’s not always the case. As is the case across a lot of industries innovation and investment in new infrastructure and business development often peaks when there are larger events or attractions in or nearby the city. A prime example of such an event is when US President Barack Obama visited Cardiff as part of a NATO dinner back in September 2014. This brought huge attention to the city with a significantly increased security presence across the capital as you’d expect but it wasn’t the only thing that arrived. With such a key event being held it help to promote Cardiff and South Wales in general as being a city capable of hosting such an event which not only helped to attract business and investments but also had a sizable impact on tourism to the city.

For security reasons the details are a little sketchy but it’s absolutely possible to visit Cardiff and stay in the exact same Cardiff hotel rooms that were then occupied by some of the most powerful people in the world. This is perhaps not everybody’s idea of a nice Cardiff hotel break but if it’s something you’re interested then it’s within reach.

With Cardiff having both the Principality Stadium and Motorpoint Arena along with countless other fantastic venues this bring a lot of important social and cultural events to Cardiff which only helps to push the hotels and Cardiff apartments to grow and to further become more attractive to potential tourists from all over the world. As things continue to grow and as Cardiff continues to attract these large events this is going to have a continued positive impact on the local hotel industry with more and more both affordable Cardiff hotels and of course cheaper Cardiff hotel deals becoming readily available.

It’s certainly a fantastic time to come and visit the city!
