A colleague had booked me in for a Monday night - I arrived at 8pm to find that the booking was apparently for Wednesday and they were fully booked on the Monday. I was given a complementary drink and asked to wait whilst they tried to sort something out or find an alternative hotel in the neighbourhood. After 15 minutes a room had been found (as long as I could vacate it early the following morning, which suited me fine) and I was checked in, with the offer of another drink for the inconvenience.
The room itself was lovely - spacious, clean and comfortable. The only issue was that the picture on the TV was rather dark but I didn't want to watch anything other than the news headlines. There are a range of restaurants just around the corner of varying cuisines and prices - traditional, Mexican, Malaysian, a diner, pubs etc - and the hotel restaurant menu looks pretty good as well. Had breakfast on the sunlit terrace in the morning - really good choice, well presented and served quickly and efficiently.
This was my second stay at the Dylan and I will be returning to Dublin fairly frequently, so I will make it my destination of choice when I am next there.
