“High quality five star hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2008

Service level is excellent and unquestionably 5-star, with staff who are polite and in abundance. Check in was very fast.

Rooms are typical cookie cutter shape/layout hotel rooms, albeit well furnished ones (however, quality wise can still be topped, for example by the Park Hyatt Hamburg). One observation quality wise however was the use of white plastic electrical sockets (which seemed a bit cheap, metal ones would be more in keeping). The bathroom was a good size with marble floors and shower walls. L'Occitane soaps and shampoo were provided. The air conditioning cooled and heated the room relatively quickly compared to other hotels I've stayed in.

The bed was comfortable. Use of the TV internet is chargeable (which I found somewhat inappropriate considering the cost of the room and that some other 5-star hotels, such as the Rocco Forte Edinburgh, don't charge extra for this).

Room service was excellent. The menu is the same as the "cafe" downstairs and prepared to a high standard (you are eating a restaurant meal in your room). The restaurant and bars themselves were exclusive looking places. Piano music played in the bar, which appeared to be filled with a somewhat elderly crowd.

This hotel is definitely 5-star and I recommend it, but it can still be topped.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2008

It’s a Four Seasons so you know it is going to be great.

We had a massive room and the comfiest bed ever. The location was great for us close enough to the centre to be accessible but far enough away to be quiet.

The outside is a bit ugly but the inside more than makes up for it. I would highly recommend to anyone. A great place to spend a weekend and explore Dublin from.

The property is exquisite, the facilities first rate and the staff are born to serve. The hotel is in a very quiet residential/embassy area and adjacent to the home of the Dublin Horse Show - which we were advised by staff is a good time to NOT stay at the FS unless you are a horse-person.

Five of us spent three nights in two rooms - we booked moderate and were upgraded to deluxe. We took advantage of a "stay three nights, pay for two" promotion; which we appreciated at 1.60USD to the Euro.

The rooms were immaculate and tastefully decorated, the bedding (including one rollaway) was comfy with very high quality linens. Our room looked out on the main drive into the property, but truthfully there is not much to see in this part of the city. Bottom line - exactly what you would expect of the Four Seasons. (standard TV's though - suprised they have not upgraded to large flat panels - but I'm quibbling now - who's going to watch TV in Dublin, unless of course hurling is on the tube...) but I digress.

Omar took VERY good care of us and was the consummate bellman, doorman and all around caretaker - omnipresent and completely unobtrusive. In fact the front desk, concierge, and housekeeping staff were, at worst, extremely pleasant and, at best, thoroughly accomodating and instructional (we REALLY appreciated the suggestions for sightseeing, dining and a lovely 1/2 day trip to Howth - by train which stops 300 yards from the hotel - including a remarkable lunch at the renowned King Sitric). We thoroughly enjoyed the sushi hour in the appropriately named restaurant, ICE (our first experience pairing sashimi and Guiness).; drinks in the Lobby Lounge and our numerous excursions to what we came to refer to as "pub row", a mere 5 minute walk from the hotel.

As for getting around - we took a taxi from the Dublin airport - cost efficient for five of us at ~€30. The hotel offers complimentary transportation around the city - first come, first served - in a brand spanking new 7 series BMW. The hop on/hop off bus tour is a must. And, for the hearty, I recommend heading off to Trinity College and the Book of Kells on foot, pausing only to scarf a delicious Irish breakfast at Roly's - believe me, you'll walk it off...

Other notable amenities: the Spa, although we did not take advantage of individual services, the workout room was one of the best we've seen; the business center - three workstations, we never had a problem getting online... FYI

Without hesitation I give the Four Seasons Dublin 5 circles (stars? splats?) This property defines the phrase "exceeds expectations." And with promotional rates and off-season specials you can enjoy the best of both worlds - limited financial damage and the FS experience.

We booked 2 roomsin this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is a truly 5 star hotel in all aspects, except the lack of tea and coffee making in the rooms. That is a pity because it would have made our stay even more enjoyable. After a long day sightseeing it would have been so nice just to relax with a cup of tea before going downstairs to the bar. Even a B&B provides this service!!!! Luckely we always travel with an electric kettle in the car.

This was a wonderful hotel to stay in. The service was very personal, but not in your face. There were some lovely touches, from the upgrade on our arrival, to the doorman having bottles of water on hand for when we returned from a run. Our room was gorgeous, the gym well-stocked, the sauna was lovely, and food was of a very high standard. Loved this hotel.

It was a birthday treat to stay here and I really enjoyed. We treated ourselves to the Romantic Escape package and the late check out facility was great. The atmosphere, food and service in the restuarant was excellent and I would highly recommend it.
