Our stay hear started out a little strange. My parents were given their room key, went up to their room and there was a couple sitting on the bed smoking, on a non smoking floor! They quickly shut the door and went down to the front desk where the receptionist said they had the wrong room number. Which didn't explain why the key worked or why they were smoking on a non smoking floor. She then tried to give them a room on the same floor which they said no to obviously because of the smoke. After the room situation was sorted out the stay was fine.
This hotel is what you would expect from a big chain. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and the location is within walking distance to Trinity college and Grafton street. Basic buffet breakfast. The one thing that was above average was the manager (can't remember his name). He was so helpful with restaurant recommendations and making sure everything was to our satisfaction.
