of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
The hotel is well located and the staff quite helpful. The place is a bit long in the tooth, with need of some updates. The bed was comfortable. The room was rather dark, even with lights on. The place was clean. Overall, a good choice for location, comfort and cleanliness.
"Nice Hotel in a Great Location ... where Membership Reward Status Seems Irrelevant"
The Westin Dublin is an attractive, well-managed hotel in a desirable, central location. It is has a nice, classic decor, a prompt and well-trained staff, and excellent amenities. It is very close to Trinity College, Temple Bar, and the River Liffey. You can quickly get to anywhere in Dublin from here, and most of the interesting spots are well within walking distance. I would have given the Westin Dublin five stars but we felt that they didn't give us the service or upgrade we should have received. Specifically, we have Platinum status with SPG and Marriott, and we made the reservations nearly 6 months before the trip using quite a few membership rewards points. They placed us in a room with two double beds down a labyrinthine maze well beyond the remote fitness center on the first floor. The room was spacious and comfortable with a nice bath, but I expected better based on the platinum reward status that took me a long time to reach and maintain. When I asked for better, the girl at the front desk who checked us in declined my request. Although I'm disappointed, the Westin Dublin is still a very nice hotel in an excellent location with great amenities and a professional staff. It still gets four stars, although SPG/Marriott Rewards members might want to prepare themselves for some resistance if they are expecting their membership status to enhance their stay.
"Nearly There but not Perfect"
I stayed here on business about 4 or 5 months ago and it was a nice stay. I would not stay here again though due to the accessibility and the noise of Luas works going on outside the premises. I understand that it is not the fault of the hotel although the noise was very irritating and never seemed to stop. The room was very stuffy and needed a window open which did not help the noise. The staff were very friendly as you would expect from a hotel of this pedigree and the food (I had one evening meal) was very good. The bar, as I knew previously, is very popular and has a large vast array of drinks with very knowledgeable bar staff and mixologist. I would not stay here again though - for the price that was paid I would not have expected noise pollution.
I had a terrific stay at the Westin in Dublin. Close to temple bar area and next to Trinity College. I was there the day of Hurricane Ophelia and they extended my stay one additional day because all flights were cancelled. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.
"High End Dublin"
The staff and the location are the highpoints of this property but it comes at a price. Directly across from airport bus shuttle stop and Fleet Street where all the tourist bars are, the room, drink and food prices are high. But at least you are treated like the high paying customer that your are. Breakfast is good but again, 20 Euro is a lot of money for eggs. They do have a very nice bar on property with great entertainment but again, really high drink prices. Was not all that impressed with the two double bed room I was given since I was told there was a wedding that weekend and all the single bed rooms were taken, so I guess my 500 Euro a night did not qualify. But if you don't mind spending a lot of money to be treated like valued guest, then this is the place for you.
