To be honest I wasn't expecting to be allocated a great room as we had booked a special deal and were advised that the room would be at the back of the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised when our room turned out to be more than adequate with a fridge, wi fi, flat screen TV and safe. The room was of a good size and the bathroom was also of a good size and had a separate bath and shower. No complaints about the bed either.
Regardless of their role we found all the staff to be pleasant and helpful. We had no complaints about the food either. There was a good choice at breakfast and the fresh fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice were a nice touch.
We had heard that O'Connell Street had a problem with crime/drugs etc. When we were there the local Gardai were having a crackdown on these activities (Operation Spire) and we quite enjoyed the excitement of seeing police cars driving about with the sirens blaring!
All in all we enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in staying in the Gresham again.
