We booked our accommodation last November and spoke to Kelly on reception who was friendly, helpful and answered all questions I had regarding parking etc. I was staying with my husband and son and we were going to the Rihanna concert on 21st June. We were booked in by Suzanne who was full of smiles despite the madness of the crowds assembling outside for the concert. We were staying in the executive rooms which overlooked the Aviva stadium with our own balcony. This room was on the 5th floor and was very "French boudoir" in its design and furniture which also included a smart T.V. and it was worth it as the bed was super comfortable. It was a bit noisy on the Friday night but we expected that so it wasn't too bad. Breakfast was all you can eat and there was plenty of it. Staff in the restaurant were efficient and helpful and the food was fresh and plentiful. My 12 year old son said that the breakfast was awesome and unbelievable!!! On departure we were greeted again by the lovely Suzanne and Lorraine at reception and it was certainly the Cead Mile Failte that has been lacking in so many Irish hotels over the years. So a big Go raibh maith agat to Kelly, Suzanne, Lorraine and Linda - you are all a credit to your profession and please continue to smile. Hotel is located only a 10 minute walk to Grafton Street and was clean. If I had to make a criticism it would be with the shower curtain and the shower in the room as both seem to have their own personality. A little more scrubbing on the bathroom tiles wouldn't go astray either. However, that being said we will certainly be back again to the Grand Canal Hotel because of Location, Budget and above all the Great Welcome.
