"Location Is the Only Saving Grace"
From other reviews I was hoping for a much better experience. The good news is that the location of the hotel is great for tourists as it is with waking distance of most everything and, with just a little more effort you can walk everywhere. There were a variety of problems with my stay, including room, plumbing, and amenities. Staff and and management response was lackluster and not as expected. Nothing particularly interesting or noteworthy about the hotel. Breakfast was average to not very good. Bar/lounge areas were a plus at an otherwise mediocre property.
"Extra day in the City"
I only spent one evening as I had an extra day in Dublin after a business trip. It was a great location but the lobby seemed to have a very strong perfume smell that made me a little nauseous. And this smell was there every time I went through the lobby. The rooms were small but nice and mine had a great view of Trinity College. The bathroom was well lighted and clean. My only big complaint about the room was that the TV did not work. Luckily I did not spend a lot of time in my room so it didn't matter much. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a lot of construction right now due to the tram system but you could not ask for a better location next to Temple Bar area.
"Luxurious and Centrally Located"
My stay at The Westin Dublin was overall a very pleasant one. It is within walking distance from many great restaurants, stores, and attractions. Our group had five people in it and 3 of which have to eat gluten free. The hotel was very accommodating to this and had many gluten free options. The buffet food was very good although the service is a bit slow and they messed up or forgot our orders once or twice. The rooms were luxurious and larger than the average European hotel room, which was a plus because there were three people in one room in our group. There are also American outlets in every room too! The hotel has a very nice lobby and a courtyard lounge on the second floor that was very comfortable to sit in. I would stay at The Westin Dublin again.
"Wonderful afternoon sipping champagne with strawberries in the Atrium"
We really enjoyed our afternoon in the Westin. We booked a table in the Atrium for 3:45pm so we arrived just as they were kind of wrapping up their afternoon tea session. We ordered a bottle of Taitinger and strawberries. We had already eaten lunch before we went in so did not indulge in food on this occasion. The waitress was lovely and when my friend sampled the newly opened bottle of champagne, he discovered that it was not properly chilled. The waitress apologised immediately and offered us a glass each of the house Taitinger. We happily accepted and allowed the bottle to chill a while longer. The service was great overall. I wish I could remember our waitress's name but she had dark hair and was Eastern European. She did great service recovery and we enjoyed the bottle once it was properly chilled. I have visited the Atrium a few times and would definitely go back.
"Great location, beautiful hotel"
I only stayed here for one night but the room was beautiful, large and all the amenities you could ask for. They even had a deal with Under Armour where if you forgot workout clothes they would bring some to your room for you to use. The location is perfect. Short walking distance to lots of sights (Trinity College, Grafton Street, Dublin Castle, St Stephen's Green, Temple Bar). It's very close to Temple Bar but just far away enough that you aren't right in the party zone but in a few short steps you can be if you want. The staff was very helpful, the free wifi worked well. The breakfast was your generic hotel buffet breakfast but it was fine. Overall if you are looking for a nice place to stay in a great location I would recommend this.
