We booked a week long stay here on points. I am always a little suspicious when I book on points that they take the services offered down a notch but if there is any truth to my hunch, it was definitely not a factor here. Check in was great. No rooms available at the time we arrived but the bell stand was more than accommodating. Not only with holding our bags but providing good transportation options and suggestions for dining in the area.
We had a triple room which is very small in comparison to US standards. If there is one drawback it is that only rooms on the HHonors floor have A/C. It is generally pretty cool there and windows open but it is noisy outside with fans and hotel machinery. It did get a little stuffy in the room a couple of times. I am a diamond but they could not accommodate us with a triple on the honors floor that was also quiet. They REALLY took my profile note for a quiet room seriously. They were up front with rooms available that might not meet our request for quiet hence our stay on the standard floor. The only other minor disappointment is that while the hotel emulates the top Doubletree standards, the beds are not what we expect from a Doubletree in the US. They were good but left us a little stiff after a week sleeping in them.
The room had a refrigerator in it. A very nice amenity is that there is one standard US power port available along with the European power sources.
The bathroom had a strange 1/2 door for a shower door but surprisingly, we did not soak the floor when using the shower!
We went on several day trips. While the breakfast offered was nothing short of perfect, some days we had to leave before breakfast was open (6:30). They offered breakfast bags with pastries, juice and fruit. I have never in nearly 140 nights per year in Hilton properties encountered such an amazing service. One day we even got a tin of cookies to take on the train. What a wonderful service to offer us!! BRAVO!
The room was always cleaned so nicely and the hotel itself is immaculate. The executive lounge had a great beer selection, minimal food options but great soda and water available including sparkling water which I never see in the US. Breakfast was available there as well but started at 7 so we never went in.
There is a taxi stand just outside always filled with cars waiting to take us. If you take Aircoach from the Dublin airport, it is a short walk to this hotel from their drop on Leeson. Cab fares to downtown near the Liffey would be between 12 and 15 Euro.
I had drinks in their spacious pub every night. We even ate there one night and it was very good although food service was quite slow.
On any return trip to Dublin, we'll be sure to give this property our business and you should too. Superb accommodations!
