Maybe if we had not been impressed by The Shelbourne Hotel where we stayed one night before checking into this Westin Hotel, then perhaps we would have been okay with it. I really tried to like this Westin. But I could not help make comparisons with The Shelbourne. Here are some of the reasons why you should stay at The Shelbourne instead of Westin:
1. The Shelbourne is steep in Irish history. There is a little museum inside the hotel about its history and famous guests.
2. Westin charges for wifi access. The Shelbourne doesn't.
3. Our one-bedroom suite in Westin looked was boring. Very business like; zero charm at all. The Shelbourne's was beautifully appointed and was named the JFK suite, a nod to a famous Irish-American, our former president.
4. Westin charges extra for breakfast. The Shelbourne's one-bedroom suite included free breakfast. Our suite at The Shelbourne had fresh flowers and a live plant. I know it's silly mentioning that here but those little things make quite an impression for travelers like me. It means the hotel is really trying to make me feel at home.
5. The cost of a one bedroom suite is comparable for both hotels, so why settle for a crummy suite?
