Maybe my favorite hotel in the world, location, service, especially Dennis the concierge, breakfast is not as good as before, prices in the bars is crazy, $60 per person for high tea. $500 a night for a nice room, but I always hate to leave.

Marriott touts The Shelbourne as a five star hotel. In our mind that puts it on par with The Ritz, however that was not the experience we had. The Hotel is grand with lots of character, interesting artwork on every wall, and is in a fabulous location...the staff just doesn't live up to what one would expect from The Shelbourne's... More

This is a fantastic hotel - it oozes character and class, from the tasteful rooms, to the lovely bar, to the professional staff. The room was great with an incredibly comfortable bed and a very large bathroom. The hotel is in a perfect location with easy access to many historic sites, shopping, and restaurants in Dublin.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The world famous Shelbourne Hotel is a timeless landmark in the heart of Dublin. Located only 9km from Dublin Airport, The Shelbourne overlooks the magnificent St. Stephen’s Green, and is just seconds from the city’s sights and shops, commerce and culture. But the connection to Ireland’s capital runs far deeper than location. Founded in 1824, The Shelbourne, a Renaissance Hotel is a place where history has been made – the Irish Constitution was drafted, literary masterpieces were penned and society was shaped. Today, as part of the worldwide Renaissance brand, the hotel has been dramatically restored to its full original splendour. Each of the 265 bedrooms are unique, but they all share a sense of charm, style and above all quality…100% Egyptian cotton bedding by Rivolta Carmignani, elegant marble bathrooms with luxury amenities, flat-screen televisions, high speed internet access and climate control. The Shelbourne has 19 beautifully appointed suites, 12 of which are named after famous guests who have stayed at the hotel, such as Princess Grace, John F. Kennedy and Michael Collins and Eamonn De Valera. At the very heart of Dublin’s very best times for almost 200 years, The Shelbourne continues to be the city’s favourite hotel for fine food and drinks in an incomparable environment for generations of Dubliners. The Shelbourne offers a superb choice of dining venues; The Saddle Room, a modern steak and seafood restaurant, The Lord Mayor’s Lounge which serves Dublin’s only true afternoon tea, the renowned Horseshoe Bar and No. 27 Bar & Lounge, the place to see and be seen in Dublin! The hotel features a luxurious Spa offering six treatment rooms, including a suite for two people to share their spa experience together, a manicure and pedicure area as well as an opulent relaxation room. A 17.5m swimming pool, thermal facilities, dance studio and state-of-the-art gymnasium complete the facilities. ... more   less
