“Wonderful Stay and Helpful Staff”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We recently stayed at The Morrison in mid-May for 4 nights and give it high marks. The location is perfect for exploring the city center, most things are easily within walking distance and there is not much noise at night. The breakfast was tasty and plentiful, fortifying us for a day of walking around. The staff at the front desk were very helpful for recommending restaurants, directing us to the local Vodafone store and explaining how to catch the train to sights just outside of Dublin. The room was a good size and well appointed. Our only concern was how stuffy the room got when the window is closed, but then I noticed the stand alone fan. The central system didn't seem to offer any real air circulation. Only a minor issue.

Room Tip: I overheard another guest with a room overlooking the river comment about traffic noise. We stayed i...

This was our first visit to Ireland. The Morrison, DoubleTree, hotel is a located in perfect location for touring central Dublin. We were able to walk to every must see landmark in Dublin, everything that we wanted to see was within 45 min. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We are Hilton Honors members and received a very nice upgrade.
The breakfast is both buffet and an optional made to order. The selection and food was very good.
We highly recommend this hotel for your central Dublin stay.

The Morrison, the first DoubleTree hotel to open in Ireland, is a great hotel with a great location. It may be a little hard to find (at first), simply because it fits in so well with it's surroundings ... there's no large "DoubleTree" sign ... but it's on the north side of the river Liffey, on Lower Ormond Quay (Street), directly across from the Temple Bar section (easily accessed by the Millennium pedestrian bridge). (The street along the river seems to change names on each block, so a GPS navigation system helps a lot in finding the right building).

The reception area is low key and modern, with soothing piped-in music (just the right mood after a long flight from the US). The rooms either face out onto the river and/or surrounding city, or into a nice interior courtyard. Our room was fairly large, with a king-sized bed, flat screen TV, mini-bar, and modern bathroom (with large walk-in shower). The bathroom amenities are the typical DoubleTree fare (Crabtree & Evelyn), with nice towels ... however they're a bit stingy with the towels (2 bath towels, 2 hand towels, and 1 face cloth) and the soap (only one bar of hand soap for a 3 day stay ... we asked for more, but didn't get it) ... but these are minor quibbles.

The room rate was high, but not unexpected for such a great location, but included the daily breakfast buffet (with the option of a hot breakfast cooked to order, since we're HHonors Gold members) ... one of the better hotel breakfasts I've had! They also have an arrangement for a lower rate at a parking garage ("car park") a block behind the hotel, which saves quite a bit. (Don't park in the top floor ... the local birds seem to have an affinity for the roofs of parked cars).

The breakfast restaurant is large, bright, and airy (two levels, and two stories tall, with TV projected on one wall ... cooking shows during breakfast time was a welcome change from the typical morning news broadcast, since we were on vacation) ... the décor was a bit unique, with one very large, very strange, humanoid sculpture apparently ready to leap down to the lower level, over a small table (where one or two people were usually enjoying their breakfast) ... you have to see it, but it does work with the surroundings!

Dinner (not included in the rate) is served in the separate Morrison Grill restaurant, looking out on the street and river. We ate there one night and I had the 9oz. filet ("fillet"), which can be had with your choice of Béarnaise, garlic butter, or peppercorn sauce ... pricy (€29), but excellent (they also have some more traditional choices on the menu ... i.e. Fish and Chips with minted peas ... at more affordable prices). Try to save room for dessert ... they have some excellent choices on the menu ... the "Apple Tarte Tatin" is delicious.

A good way to see the city and get an overview of the history, is the "HOHO" (Hop On / Hop Off) buss, which goes by the hotel every 10 minutes or so (the nearest stop is just a block or two east). You pay one fare for two days and can ride around the city, getting off and on at any of their many stops (if you want to go to the Guinness Storehouse ... which is great, but a very long walk ... this is a great way to get there).

This was a fantastic hotel located close to all amenities with good access to all tourist attractions. The rooms (Junior Suite for our anniversary) were large, well equipped, modern and very clean. All staff from reception to restaurant and bar were very helpful and polite and breakfast choices were amazing. Only problem was noise from deliveries early morning, this was quickly solved by the staff and we were moved to another room. Would happily stay again.

If you're visiting Dublin and want to be in the center of the action, The Morrison is the place to stay. Funky rooms and funky decor and a great breakfast buffet. I've stayed here several times over the last couple of years and it's been better each time. The bar was the weak spot the first two times I was here. My last visit changed my mind entirely on the bar. The bartenders were great and the service was prompt. If it gets better on my next visit, it'll be five stars.

I recently spent 9 nights at the hotel. Our overall experience was great. The location is close to restaurants, shops and museums. I could walk to many places easily and quickly. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. I couldn't ask for better treatment. My only caution is that there are some tech related gadgets (open/close curtains, shower) that took a bit to find/figure out. Once I learned everything was fine! I will certainly choose this hotel if I ever return to Dublin.
