I wanted city Centre during a tech conference and The Gresham gave me a compact room that enabled me to buy my fair share of rounds during our evening discussions. I enjoy the character of the hotel because it's owners have respected the fabric of the building while keeping its rooms clean and functional.
Some on Foursquare note how the hotel attracts a lot of over-50 guests. During my stay, several busloads of 30-something hens arrived to reduce that age cohort. And based on what I heard through the walls, these women are physically active.
The in-house exercise facilities encourage a different kind of activity and I wish I had brought my gear with me. But that would have limited my early morning session in the resident's bar so I am glad I stayed unfit.
Breakfast was bright and airy with the most attentive staff I have seen working floors, tables and service area. They followed the excellent example of the manager who seemed to be everywhere.
Based on my experience with the hotel, I think I will book a return with my family so we can watch Cork come to life some evening with the hotel's view of the River Lee.
