I've stayed in this hotel frequently during 2009 and 2010 as a business traveller, we get a corporate rate which thankfully includes breakfast and free internet. Otherwise these are quite pricey. The breakfast is probably the highlight of the stay for me, great choice, always well prepared, fresh, friendly staff etc. No complaints. Dinner can be a different matter. The menu didn't change for a year which was very boring for the frequent visitor! However on the plus side, the chefs can offer flexibility so its possible to "adapt" the dinner menu items to change things around. Avoid the Burnell burger - it's horrible. Anyway, probably a very standard menu - steaks, pasta, some specials etc. The bedrooms can be noisy - this is because the hotel is on a busy junction and because it's near the airport. I always pick an odd-numbered room because this faces away from the road. The showers in the bathrooms are "weak", not great. The gym is open 24x7 and is small, basic, fulfills a need but nothing to get excited about. The hotel is right next to a large Tesco and other shops (Clairehall) which is a plus, if you need to shop, but otherwise it's a fairly "dodgy area" - do not wander around after dark if you don't know where you're going or if you look too much like a tourist. The staff will give lifts to Malahide - about 10 mins down the road - there are loads of great restaurents and bars (pubs) there which make a nice change, they'll pick you up also. There is a nice chinese restaurent in the same block as the Hilton, also worth a visit for a change of scene. The staff are on the whole very polite and attentive; English is sometimes a limitation - they don't understand how to make a pint of "orange and lemonade" ... when the bar is busy, it can take a while to get someone's attention, but the food generally comes along very quickly once ordered. On the whole, an OK hotel, nothing out of this world apart from the breakfasts!
