I usually stay at a Marriott but none close to the airport and my husband had Hilton points that need to be used !!
Early December I traveled from Belfast to Dublin airport by bus arriving 6.30pm and had great difficulty in finding where to pick up the hotels shuttle bus in the dark, but as a previous reviewer has stated this is due to airports lack of signs rather than the hotels fault.
It was a busy night so the wait in the cold was rather long ! and I was rather surprised to find that instead of the hotel being on the airport perimeter we were headed back up the motorway I'd just come down !
However despite the 15- 20 min ride the drivers are very professional and friendly and will advise which shuttle to book for a return journey depending on your flight time.
The check in was fast and welcoming and they sorted out a phone query I had for international codes graciously. (there was no phone book in room.)
King bed and huge room , wonderful view 4th floor , Very pleased with the accommodation. Clean and large bathroom.
I ate in the bar as the dining room was fully booked,(the hotel appeared to be full of overseas athletes )
Fish and chips plus Guinness was excellent and plentiful. The bar manager asked if there was a problem with the meal as I had not eaten all the fish and seemed concerned and asked if he could replace with anything else despite me assuring him that the food was very good. ( I'd had a large lunch )
I had an early flight the next morning and as I was flying to USA ( you have to clear customs as well as security and this adds to the normal time you need to make your flight, allow at LEAST two and a half hours ) I hate the alarm connected to the TV as I am always worried that it won't work ! so I called down to reception for a 4.30am call
.At 4.30am exactly the call came and it was the receptionist not an automated call....very impressed ,wish the Marriott would take note!
Driver waiting to load luggage in reception and the shuttle left promptly at the advertised time
( I believe they now charge for the return journey,be aware if you are low on euros !)
All in all I would stay again.
