This was my second stay at the Fitzwilliam. The first was in 2000, and I was smitten then.
It's changed very little and I mean that in a good way. The place looks like new. The room was spotlessly clean and the entire hotel has a feeling of solidity about it which few modern buildings have.
Bed was great, bathroom really good. As others have mentioned, the power shower is perhaps a little TOO powerful for my liking! Had no problem with noise from other rooms. This time I was in a (cheaper) garden room which was really nice and peaceful.
The negatives? Room was bizarrely hot unless aircon was on. The safe is tiny and certainly not big enough for a laptop which I'd expect in a hotel of this class. Also free internet access is wired rather than wireless.
Only had breakfast once which was fine but pricey as you'd expect. Service at front desk and at breakfast was fast, efficient and friendly.
I'll certainly stay at the Fitzwilliam the next time I'm in Dublin. Recommended.
