A genuine 5 star. If our American friends like it I'm sure I will. I was right. It was exactly the treat I wanted for our anniversary. I love the Trinity area of Dublin anyway and you're between the best shops and visitor sites in Dublin. Grafton St and O'Connell St are a 5 min walk away. Taxi's always at the Westin's door. The Westin Hotel is an amazing building to start. A very friendly bunch of well groomed staff meet you and will bend over backwards to make your time enjoyable. We had a hiccup with the room booking purely because of the third party company I booked with via Trip Advisor. Be careful with "Amoma.com" as what I booked didn't mean the same with the Westin. Book with the Westin's website to be sure. Still, The Westin did their utmost to give us their best with what they had. Rooms are spotless and bathroom massive too. Our queen sized bed was soooo comfy. The Mint Bar had a menu that suited us before our nite out. Delicious food. Staff again were very pleasant. Breakfast was 5* too. Staff again were happy to help. Great service and very quick. We were given a 3pm complimentary checkout which was perfect as our train home was at 4pm. I liked the fact that the staff were smiling. That's important. Good staff make a good Hotel 'great'. Worth the extra for a perfect treat. Thanks Westin.

Room Tip: Book early and use the Westin's website to avoid room type confusion. Very peaceful and quiet ho...

The Westin Dublin is quite unique. With the Westin brand, you usually get the same, anywhere you are. I love the Westin Dublin because the staff is fantastic, always reaching out to help you and offer tips for your time in the city. You will be step out of the hotel and be within reach to great pubs, shopping, site seeing and more. Take a look online to see the great decor of this hotel and get planning! I booked this hotel the day before I left the U.S. and got a good rate. My only word of caution is that the Atrium Lounge staff needs additional training. The server was unable to make an amaretto and o.j. and then later a courvoisier on ice. Stick to using brand names (Disaronno, etc.) and you shouldn't have any trouble. You will love this hotel.

Hi TravelingGrrr, thank you for your lovely review after you stayed with us here in the Westin Dublin. I am so happy to read that the team reached out to you and helped you to enjoy Dublin. But I am concerned to read that you found the team in the Atrium inexperienced I have passed your comments on to the manager there for her to look into.

Overall a positive experience. Loved the old building and accommodations. The location is perfect and close to everything. The rooms are well appointed. We arrived on a red-eye from the States and they actually let us get into our room at 8AM, hours before actual check in time, to nap.

No free continental breakfast, like at the Hilton down the block (which was the most amazing continental breakfast I've ever seen!) and the internet was down more than a few times. many of us were standing around while they tried to get it online. This was four of the five days we were there. Also, there was a misunderstanding with the rooms. We were a party of five and they did not have the correct accommodations reserved so there was a bit of room swapping and juggling but they ultimately made things right and credited my account for our trouble, which was nice. I would stay here again as I sought out the Westin specifically for its higher end experience. This location delivered.

Room Tip: The rooms are quiet so no problems there but if you can stay in the two story suite with the loft an...

Great Hotel with perfect city centre location within walking distance of all sights. Wonderful rooms and very attentive staff. Westin at its best - great food adn service but also close to other less expensive restaurants if needed. Would definitely come back when next in Dublin.

Room Tip: Book rooms back from the main street

The Westin is in the perfect location for visiting Dublin. It's right across the street from Trinity College and so very close to all the great restaurants/pubs/shopping/museums....the list is endless. The accomodations are 1st class along with the service. Great place to stay and I encourage everyone to take advantage of location.

Room Tip: Ask to have a room overlooking Trinity College.

Very pleased w/ the Westin Dublin hotel for it's location, room details (wonderful mattress & shower), pleasant city view, and traditional decor. My only concern was that the hotel was overbooked by "Adventure Disney Tours" so for example, when I dialed the front desk - the phone would just ring & ring w/out being answered or when I went to the bell desk for map directions - nobody was staffing it because they were assisting the large group. A couple of times, I entered the lobby and it was challenging to walk through to the elevator due to all the tour people and their bags. I also received several mis-directed phone calls asking if I was with the "tour". Otherwise, I enjoyed the glass ceiling Mint Bar for tea and a snack and the assistance of the staff on where to eat locally (I loved the suggested nearby "Winding Stair" & "The Pig's Ear" restaurants). Yes, I would elect to stay here again.... hoping that it would be unlikely that the number of guests would overwhelm the hotel's availability a second time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room toward the corner of the building to increase your view.

Having never been to Dublin, I felt some of my normal standards regarding hospitality may be different than in the US. I'm in a foreign country which means there will be some kind of surprise-- good or not. The Westin Dublin is in a great location for tourists and business travelers being yards from the Temple Bar --bar-restaurant scene, Trinity University and the main shopping area of central Dublin.

The building is old but has been modernized. The lobby is nice but nothing notable comes to mind. We are a family of three so had an upgraded standard which had a king and a nice twin. We had our stuff in every available spot but didn't find it objectionable. Our room faced the street and had a window that opened partially-- this is a very important feature for us because we like fresh air for sleeping. The bathroom was nice-- another important factor in judging a hotel for me.

The bathroom had a floor that I covet-- 10x10 pillow cut in Carrera marble which feels good under your feet-- not shiny or slippery but stylish rustic. A lovely bathtub, decent shower ( not great if you are really tall) with the best hot water and pressure ever, good size sink and best was the lighting and storage capacity. There wasn't a cabinet but there were ledges here and there for all toiletries we had. This is key because my 14 year old has lots of hair products. I love that I could see my pores because the lighting was bright. Greta bath products that smell wonderful. THEY HAVE WASHCLOTHS!!! Yeah. So thrilled about this one little thing.

Dings go to the fitness center for size which was WAY too small and WAY TOO hot. No ventilation!

Staff were all exemplary. Shout out to Sam Heath for helping us before we arrived and upon arrival. Pretty front desk blonde- redhead was genuinely sweet and pleasant! She nailed all the main "arrival details" smoothly and with confidence.

Westin was a highlight of our stay in Ireland.

Room Tip: It stays light for a long time outside so if you need a dark room, ask for an interior courtyard roo...

I am very happy reading your comments and that the Westin was a highlight of your stay in Ireland. Thanks also for the special mention of Samuel he is a great asset to our team and Elena who looked after you on check in. I am sorry that you didn't enjoy the gym but do you know that we have running maps and water and towels for our guests who might like to run outside in this lovely summer weather.
