Originally I had booked for one night only but then added a second, and the original room type was not available. The hotel happily and easily arranged it so that we would not have to change rooms, and we were able to have both nights at the better room type (and also given an upgrade as we are Starwood Gold).
The room was very large, very nicely appointed, extremely comfortable Sweet Sleeper bed. The bathroom is terrific. We have no need for a tub so always prefer a shower, but this bathroom had both. I'm in love with the TV or radio speakers in the bathroom so I'm not missing my program while in the shower. Plenty of counter and shelf space in bathroom for toiletries and personal items, and good space in closets as well.
The hotel is an easy walk across the bridge to the Castle, restaurants and pubs and the new art gallery along the banks of the Shannon. Our room didn't have a Shannon view, but I'm sure those are nice.
We didn't eat in the hotel since Athlone has many excellent restaurants, but all the common areas looked nice. The hotel (and car park) are directly connected to the mall, so that is very convenient. Athlone has an excellent, central location and would make a good midway point on a tour of Ireland.
