“A native's view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

I am originally from Dublin, but am currently living in Finland. My wife and I recently spent a week in the newly refurbished Morrison. We had thought about staying there before, but had been put off by poor reviews and tales of a hotel that was in bad need of a refurb. So, we were interested to hear that the hotel had received a much needed face-lift and decided to give it a try.
Here's a few of our thoughts:
The Morrison's location is close to being perfect, whether it's the night-life or the restaurants, cafes and shopping, the best that Dublin has to offer is only a short walk away. We asked for a quiet room, away from the quays, and were never disturbed.
The new decor might not be to everyone's taste, but the rooms are clean, bright and the bed's were very comfortable.
The breakfast is really really good, but we preferred to take a stroll across the river to the Queen of Tart cafe on Cow's Lane.
It is nice to know where we will be staying on our next visit to Dublin

Room Tip: Rooms away from the quays are quieter

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while on a business/pleasure trip and we were very impressed. The hotel is spotless, in a very convenient location on the river with parking facilities close by and easy walking distance to most of the attractions and amenities. The rooms are modern, spacious and clearly everything is new so you won't find chipped paint anywhere! The breakfast room is something else and made the wonderful breakfast an even greater pleasure....if that was at all possible. The staff are very helpful and friendly and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to friends or colleagues and will be booking again when I return to Dublin.

Room Tip: Highly recommend a river view room.

So you're an American and you're visiting Dublin and trying to decide where to stay. Stay here.

This is a new property for Doubletree. It was an independent hotel called The Morrison last month. They are still transitioning to the Doubletree way of doing things - but I saw no real issues.

The hotel is half a block from the Liffey - that's the big river that runs through Dublin on Google Maps :-). You are a block from O'Connell Street - that's one of the main tourist drags. You are a ten minute walk from Grafton Street - that's the other big tourist street. There are hundreds of food choices within walking distance. The bus stops are nearby - the big red tour bus folks are a block away - the main bus station is walking distance - the train station is about a mile away. There are pubs and music spots everywhere. If you are a tourist - this is where you stay.

The Morrison - as it was formerly known - was named for Jim Morrison of The Doors. Throughout the hotel there are song lyrics painted on the walls. The concert venues are nearby and often the musicians stay at this hotel.

The rooms are nice and because the hotel is a block away from the O'Connell the area is quiet. I found the rooms very comfortable - much larger than a standard European room. The bathroom was awesome.

The breakfast was excellent - very nice selections. Best of all - breakfast is served until noon so late sleepers will not miss out.

Taxi to the airport ran 25 euro.

Overall - it's a winner.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with family

We spent a week in Dublin at this fantastic hotel, with a great location, and with the exceptional, wonderfully friendly staff. So many things well within walking distance. The breakfast was well worth eating. The restaurant at noon and in the evening, ever so tasty, the best steak we have ever had (and we come from beef country). We are planning our next visit later in the year, can't wait to return. We will stay at no other hotel.

Room Tip: If possible, try for an upgrade to overlook the river.

Stayed 2 nights on business trip but location great for tourist being across river from Temple Bar and close to all the main shops. Recently refurbished and seems to be the current "in-place" with lots of events going on (a charity auction the day we arrived) and a bar dining area which is very busy in the evening. Staff all friendly. The rooms are large and comfortable and minimalist in style and no complaints. The breakfast area is a bit strange being on two levels and the hot buffet quite disappointing (especially the bacon which was over cooked and hard) though it was possible to order items from the waitress. Overall nice but over expensive for what it offers.

We've been to Dublin a few times and without doubt this was the best Hotel experience that we have ever had.
The refurbished hotel is smart and welcoming without being clinical. Its location on the banks of the river is perfect for Temple Bar and Grafton Street and also O'Connell Street - if you're looking for a central location this is it.

The staff are exceedingly helpful with nothing too much trouble - when asked about breakfast they even offered to cook baked beans to turn a full Irish into a full English for my husband. The breakfasts will soon become legendary as the food just kept coming which is the only way to prepare for a day on the Black Stuff.

We will certainly be back again to this hotel as is absolutely brilliant and next time we'll be bringing our two hungry sons for a bit of craic.

Room Tip: we had a room overlooking the river - well worth it to get the true feeling of being in Dublin

Perfect location, a small but perfectly formed Hotel overlooking the River.
on arrival (quite late at night ) I detected that it was possibly a popular 'party venue'
with a lot of noise coming from the bar/restaurant area. Hopefully this wouldnt affect my stay as I was very tired but later on, it did - as the party revellers decided to make the most unacceptable racket out in the coridoor.The desk staff sorted it quickly which I was pleased about.
My standard room was lovely and the bed very comfortable I couldnt fault it.
( except the view wasnt great )
Breakfast was a delight and the staff very helpful.
I would definately stay here again.
