The Morrison, a DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel
Ranked #9 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 21, 2013

The location of this hotel is perfect for touring Dublin. It is situated right on the River and is just a walk-across-the-bridge away from all the toursit venues on the other side. The rooms have a modern decor and seem extremely clean with comfortable beds and elegant bathrooms. The hotel also has great WiFi service. The red line for the tram is also conveniently located about 2 blocks distance.

We spend 2 nights at this hotel. The service and quick, professional and friendly. I mentioned on our reservation that we were spending our 10th wedding anniversary and they provided us with complimentary Champagne and strawberries. Very thoughtful!

The rooms are recently refurbished and look very classy and modern. The location is just perfect and a 5 minute walk from Temple Bar or the shopping district. Really great!

We've heard good things about the breakfast but decided to try some of the restaurants just outside the hotel. All good, however I am sure that the hotel breakfast would've been great as well.

Internet access if free, so that's a good perk.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are good, at least ours (404) was very quite and had a nice view of the smal court...

Stayed here for one night on business - room cost 215 Euros ouch! But actually very worth it. The bar is very nice and a good size and the whole hotel is done out in that very contemporary but classy and modern way as most of the DoubleTrees are. Still my favourite chain!
Location is the best - directly across the Millennium Bridge from Temple Bar.
Room was large with a lovely bathroom, and the first hotel I've stayed at with contact-less keys. Nice touch!
If this fits in your budget I highly recommend this hotel.

Beautiful hotel, our room was very clean, tidy and modern, overall decor in the hotel is beautiful. Easy access to Dublin City just a short walk to all shops and bars. We parked in the car park just behind the hotel very easy to access it and only €12 euro for overnight stay so very good value, I Would stay here again as it was so great to be so near the city, and have such a comfortable room to return to after a busy day shopping.

Fantastic place to stay which is right along the River Liffy and just 200 yards from the famous Ha'Penny Bridge. Fantastic bar area with excellent staff to cater for all your requirements... Highly recommended..

We stayed as part of a large group attending a meeting. Parking is just beyond the main entrance to the hotel and the hotel itself is very central. Reception staff were efficient and welcoming and quite competently stored luggage for the group after check-out.
The bedroom is of good size but decor is very bright and stark. TV doesn't have text. The bathroom is also spacious with a good shower head. The bed is comfortable BUT the 4 pillows were all the same & as hard as a rock, impossible to sleep on, others in the group commented similarly. We don't like sleeping with the a/c turned on and the room was very difficult to cool, even with the window open, which brought some street noise.
The group had a set dinner, of average quality with a pleasant starter, a very standard main course and a very poor dessert. The staff were most helpful, especially a very friendly Gavin, but management need to be more involved and give guidance to staff who are trying their best. Breakfast was good but not outstanding. The bacon, in particular, was poor, as was the toast.
The hotel is overpriced compared to many around the country but for its city centre location you probably have to pay a premium.

We just returned from 8 nights at the Morrison, and can report that it was a great experience in every way. There were so many things to like, but I'll try and hit just the most important ones here. Most importantly, the location is directly across the river Liffey from the Temple Bar area, which meant that we were close enough to the Pub action and shopping in both Grafton and Henry Street areas, but far enough away to have a completely quiet sleeping experience. We had rooms that faced the courtyard, and would guess that rooms on the Quay side would pretty quiet also. The hotel is new and bright after a major refurb: the rooms were a good size by European standards (which translates to what you'd get in a standard American hotel FYI), shower pressure was great, the bathroom sink is large and there is plenty of counter space for two people, the towels were fluffy and breakfast was good with lots of choices. There is a kettle in-room for boiling hot water, and a selection of various teas, cream/sugar, and real cups/spoons vs. paper cups/sticks. The in-room safe is large enough to hold two iPads, an SLR camera, keys, iPods, etc., and would easily hold a laptop. Two elevators responded quickly and were good sized by European standards.

Service was excellent everywhere at the Morrison. At the front desk, for example--I realized at 6:00 a.m. (just before we were leaving for a day-trip to Belfast) that we would not be back in time to make our dinner reservation. No problem, said the lovely young woman at the desk: she'd take care of it (which she did) AND she managed to get us booked for the next evening. Service was also really good in the restaurants and in the bar: smiling servers in the restaurant kept coffee/tea refreshed each morning, and the bartenders were engaging and fun to talk with (one even made us a couple of cocktails to try--we were drinking pints at the time--and the cocktails were on the house!) When leaving Temple Bar area you simply cross the Millennium Bridge, turn left after crossing at the traffic light and the hotel is only a few steps away. I'd definitely pick the Morrison for another Dublin visit.

Room Tip: We experienced quiet nights in rooms on the courtyard; however, it's likely that rooms on the Ri...
