I stayed in the Shelbourne last night 14 March for 1 night with my mother for her 85th birthday. I told them it was her birthday and we got an upgrade to a heritage de luxe room which was about 500 sq. ft. It was furnished to a very high standard and there were 2, 4 ft bes which is an un usual size for a bed these days. The bathroom was furnished to a very high standard with seperate shower, bath and a toilet with a door for privacy within the bathroom. From the moment we arrived the doormen, reception staff, conccierges could not have been more friendly or helpful. They would not let us carry our bags. They kept on asking us and my mam particularly were we having a great time for her birthday. The dinner in the restaurant was great and there service excellent. The wine waitress knew all about her wines and got us to taste some wines before we made our choice. I had the French onion soup and the sirlloin steak from the table d'hote menu. The soup is the best French onion soup I have ever tasted. The steak was so tender. The beds are very very comfortable and the duvets are heaven. They must be duck down. The biggest surprise of all was the spa. It is brand new and furnished to the highest standard. We each had an hour massage. The relaxation room looks onto stephens Green which is amazing. The towels, bathrobes and slippers are to a very high standard. The steam room was lovely and hot, as was the sauna. The pool was lovely also. This was the best hotel stay I ever had. I cannot wait to go back to the shelbourne again. One down side is the bars are sometimes so busy that there are no tables available for residents to have a re dinner drink or aafter dinner drink.
