This is a most impressive establishment, from the refreshing towel at the check in to the bottled water at check out. Attention to detail in a very service oriented establishment with nice rooms, a fie bar and good food is what this hotel s about.

Every luxury hotel in Dublin will provide you with a good bed, soft linen and branded toiletries however as you mentioned it is the service that sets us apart. Our team’s passion shines through in their service delivery, and it is purely through their hard work and efforts that we maintain such a favourable position on Tripadvisor.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in March. We were on the executive floor(4th) which has access to free bottled water, coffee machine, daily papers, fresh fruit and a balcony looking at Croke park.
The room was a decent size and the bathroom was very modern and clean.
We ate at the hotel both nights, the food was lovely both times and service was excellent!
There is free underground parking for hotel guests.

I cannot fault the hotel or its staff however a swimming pool/jacuzzi would finish this to the highest possible standard.

I can't sing this hotel's praises enough. I originally booked one night here, but loved it so much that I booked it again for my return trip to Dublin before I departed. The rooms were very large, the beds huge and extremely comfortable, and the bathrooms were spotless and had a separate shower and large bath. If you are on the fourth floor, you have access to the executive suite, which provides coffee, water, and cookies throughout the day and a very nice breakfast in the morning. It also has a fireplace and is a great area to hang out and relax. Their fitness center is large and beautiful! And the staff is so courteous and helpful. I hope to stay here again if I'm ever lucky enough to return to Dublin!

Stayed for a extended 6 day Dublin visit.

Biggest assest for this hotel..... Staff .... hands down winners when it came to helpfulness and service. Front desk and conciege staff ... the front of house and first people you meet on arrival area credit to this hotel. Housekeeping..... thanks to you for the room being kept clean and tidy for me and the turn down service for the Superior rooms.... say no more.
Overall, Dublin is a expensive place to stay and the prices for meals in the Sideline Bistro or Sideline Bar are very much inline with local prices for a decent meal.... many City centre coffee shops and restaurants charged far higher for less quality and quantity.

Access to the Ex. Lounge was nice and a quieter place for buffet breakfast in the morning....

A few negative (ish) points....

Please post the local bus routes, and stops for the hotel. For a casual, short stop user it would be extremely useful infomation. The walk into the City centre is do-able but navigating around the piles of street dumped rubbish on the way down to the top of O'Connel street is not for the faint hearted on a warm Summer morning.

CHECK match dates don't clash with your stay if you have very young children, are on a romantic weekend away or a more elderly client... that frankly likes it a little more on the sedate, quiet side. I've checked the "Offical website" and no mention is made that the entire groundfloor public areas of this hotel become a huge bar area pre and very much post match. I myself attended the match on the Saturday but come 10 pm the constant hum of the drinking crowd became a grind.... I was on the top floor !! Sunday.... no chance of getting near a bar and the Bistro...... full. It was suggested that I use room service ... but a tray charge of 5 Euro a time seemed a bit rich for the effort. Being asked to use a side entrance to enter the hotel by a temp. Security guard did not bode well... especially when I refused.

Local transport into and out of the hotel is also effected when big matches are on, especially post match, so bear in mind for airport transfer planning. Basically NO taxis or even if you hire a vehicle locally... no dice...... the local Police (Garda) shut some of the roads around the area to assist with getting a 70,000+ crowd in or away from the area quickly.

Would I stay again.... absolutely. One of the best I've stayed at in the past 10 years and I'm already booked in for a Sister hotel in Boston !!!

Thanks everyone

Room Tip: Can only comment on my Deluxe room..... vast .... well worth it... go for included breakfast deals

Stayed just one night as a family pity not any longer. Car wouldn't fit in garage as roof box on so helpful concierge Christopher showed us to a bus area. Later he suggested the Croke Park tour for kids as I had some business following am. They loved even my wife was impressed by tour and hotel. Had dinner that evening, could,mix bar food and restaurant which was v good for the price. Swordfish was delicious if not quite as good as one on beach in Ghana I had previously.
Only regret - didn't tip Christopher as not on duty when leaving following am. Great value. Lifts to,rooms bit of a pain with card swipe but can appreciate safety and security. Will return when in Dublin,
