"Three nights at the Merrion"
We arrived sat the hotel at 7:00 am and although we requested early check in there was nothing available till later, they offered to try and get a room ready by noon but that was the earliest. Asked if we would like to go to breakfast but we were not hungary. We got on the hop off hop on bus and did the tour of Dublin. When we arrived sat the hotel the doorman was right there to greet us and brought our luggage in right away and stored it for us. He was so pleasant. When we arrived back at the hotel our room was ready so the girl in reception took us to the room, we just wanted to sleep after long night and flight. Our room was a very nice room, however it was right at the end of the hall where the construction was going on. No one had mentioned the noise to us when we booked or checked in. The first night we went out to a pub and had dinner and then returned to hotel bar for a night cap. When asked for a glass of port the young man said her is the menu for drinks, we don't have port. My husband asked him to get someone else and it turned out the young man was only just training. The other bar tender got me a glass of port. The next day we went down for breakfast which was not included in the room which was 450. euros a night. The brekfast was part continental and menu offer. We both chose the full irish and when it came the eggs that were supposed to over easy were cooked iwth no yolk and the breakast meats were cold as if they sat awhile. Was not impressed. We spent the day shopping and then went to the pub around the corner which was great. Again same doorman very nice. We decided to order room service and i had the chicken noodle soup which was good and my husband had ordered the filet of beef. I was asked how the meat shouldbe cooked and I said rare to medium rare. The room service person was very prompt and set everything out. My husband removed the tray to find mash potatoes, greasy onion rings and a filet that you could have used as a hockey puck. Very disappointing. Third day went down to the concierge and Tom helped us with a car rental and gave us train times times and sceduale to go to the seaside town of Howth. Very nice trip. Leaving the hotel we were met by the same doorman who got us a cab and helped put our luggage into the taxi. Nice hotel beds comfortable but needs improvement in some of its dining choices.
Classic and beautiful hotel. Centrally located and easy to get around. Staff was very courteous and helpful. This hotel is definitely more old school vibe compared to the other LHW in Dublin, but great location and elegant.
My room was in the new section and everything about it was flawless. It was quite large for a room in a major city, with lots of closet space and a spacious bathroom; and staff had prepared it with good attention to detail. My toom was quiet and comfortable and I slept very well. The hotel itself is located in a very nice section of Dublin, very close to major attractions but on a quiet street. It's very clean and well maintained with a large and very helpful staff, as you would expect in this price range. It also has an interesting art collection The concierge staff in particular was very knowledgeable and tried very hard to be helpful and almost succeeded.
"I would choose to stay here at any opportunity"
I have been fortunate enough to stay here regularly over the years and this is an exceptional hotel. The staff are superb, the rooms are beautiful, the lounge area and bar have a lovely comfortable atmosphere with top quality food and drinks served. Every time you stay in this hotel it feels special. The decor and the art collection in the hotel are stunning. Breakfast served in your room is of such a high standard it would be difficult to explain. Luxury without stuffiness is how I would sum up this fabulous hotel.
"Luxury in the heart of Dublin"
Our favourite hotel in Dublin. The staff always look after us so well. Fabulous art collection and cosy bar in the winter. The hotel has a pool and small gym. The gardens are lovely too. If you can stay in the old building, it is charming.
