“Best bed I've slept in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

I stayed at the Fitzwilliam Hotel in the heart of Dublin City on the 11th December, primarily because I had heard of its reputation as being one of Dublin's finest Hotels.
I was not disappointed. I have to make comments about the exceptional reception & lobby staff that greeted us on the evening. My best impressions were of the staff's attention to detail & complete courteousness. And this was true also on checking out when one young staff member asked "Is there anything else I can do for you today Sir?". I was about to ask him if he wanted to attend my business meeting in my place at 2pm that afternoon, but that might have been too cheeky! Some points to note about this hotel: The decor is superb, classy & welcoming. The staff are exceptionally attentive. The bathroom in the superior room is MASSIVE. The Four Poster beds are amazing & in fact I have asked management if they can source the providers of the mattresses & pillows at the hotel because I suffer from a bad back & I want to buy these for my own home. And lastly, the views from the balcony we had of St. Stephen's Green (Dublin's Central Park!) were amazing & made our morning when we stepped out. Overall, a great experience I will be back.

We booked 2 rooms at the Fitzwilliam for our stay in Oct 2012. (3 nights)
Staff were really friendly at check in and concierge was also helpful with tips for our time in Dublin.
I was very pleased with the rooms, one of which had a balcony that overlooked the park - it was nice to sit out there and watch the world go by. The rooms were spacious and stylish, bathrooms also very nice and newly decorated.
Location was fantastic. Right on the to of Grafton St, and opposite the park. We strolled through the park many times, it was lovely.
Did not eat at the hotel, so cant comment on that.
Would stay here again and would reccomend to friends.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher levels facing the park had a lovely view!

The Fitzwilliam is in the middle of Dublin across from St Stephens green. I had a queen room with a balcony overlooking the green. I highly recommend the balcony rooms. The staff was helpful and friendly.

We staying at the Fitzwilliam hotel in late October, having read numerous reviews. We were not disappointed. Interior was very modern, and clean, overall very boutique style. Our room was on the fifth floor and located not far from the lifts. Our balcony was overlooking St Stephens green, which was fantastic, this was an upgraded room - which I would definitely recommend. Had the weather been better we would definitely have used the patio heater and seats relaxed. Rooms were very well equipped with the usual mini bar, tea / coffee, and luxurious bathroom. Little extra touches were an umbrella and stereo.
Location is perfect with hotel situated just at the top of Grafton Street, close to shops, restaurants and tram.
When we arrived, concierge parked our car for us and again when leaving, they went and brought it round to the front of the hotel, as it was pouring with rain.
Buffet breakfast was one of the best I have seen which included the usual sausage, eggs, bacon, but also cheese platter, smoked salmon, pastries and fruit.
Out of all the hotels I have stayed in Dublin this is by far my favourite, because of location and standard of the hotel.
A really enjayable stay, and I will definitely be back - I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Room Tip: Fantastic view from upgrade rooms at front, with balcony.

Stayed in this hotel just one night on a business trip. The room was really cosy, with a super comfy bed and very spacious bathroom. The hotel is ideally located near the commercial streets of Dublin and there is plenty of restaurants around the hotel. The rooms with the view on the large park are very nice and not very noisy despite being over the street.

We stayed in this hotel last weekend as a romantic break away. The hotel is located in the best part of Dublin for shopping, sight-seeing and really is the ideal place to be located in the city for a break.

We got a Winter Getaway deal which included 2 nights B&B and for the hotels standard and location I thought we got very good value. The hotel is modern with nicely furnished rooms and well kitted out bathrooms with a powerful shower and good sized bath.

The other stand out point about this hotel besides the location and value were the staff - we were treated very well and everyone we met was extremely professional and welcoming.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling on business or pleasure.

Room Tip: We stayed in a courtyard facing room which for us was a very calm, quiet, relaxing place to be.

Stayed here with my boyfriend last weekend. We've stayed here on a few occasions and the best thing by far is its location and parking facilities. Once you arrive everything is within walking distance. I only have very minor negatives about our stay the first of which was our room was overlooked by other rooms so for privacy we closed the blinds,no problem there however the lighting is extremely dim. Secondly the hotel seemed lacking in atmosphere,we were the only people at the hotel bar the night we stayed and the next morning we were the only people having breakfast. Finally the gym is pretty small and cramped,I imagine I'd feel uncomfortable if there was more than myself in it.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and most likely would return.
