Almost Perfect

Pros: Staff very friendly.
Cons: Late check in policy.
Location: Stay here and eat, don't bother driving around trying to find parking for a restaurant--very frustrating.
Arrival time into Dublin Airport 8:30 am. Need hotel at arrival. Called ahead to see how they worked late arrivals. Check in not until 3:00 pm. So asked if I should book the previous day to insure prompt check in--yes. When we got there, room had been cancelled due to "no show". So it took some to get us checked it, but not bad. Room was excellent--very nice in every way. Manager who checked us is was very nice and remembered us the next day. I would highly recommend this hotel, but they need a better late check in policy.

Staff

Pros: The Staff and the room.
Cons: Hiring more help. Perhaps the Hotel could have a list of individual that could be called when there is a need.
Location: Transportation from Dublin Airport is a benefit and makes the Hotel more appealing.
The Hotel meets all one would need for a pleasant nights stay. My problem is with Hotel Dinning staff. My wife and I had a lovely young waitress that took our drink order as soon as we were seated in the Bar Dinning room. Shortly after, our dinner order was taken. While enjoying our drink I was in a position to observe the operation of the Dinning Room. The staff consisted of two waitresses, 2 waiters and a manager. It became quite busy with several people arriving after us to an already half full Dinning Room. The staff did as best job that they could each working as a waiter/waitress, bar tender and cashier. It was obvious everyone had to wait an extended time for additional drinks and food including our order which took over a half hour to be served. Considering the circumstances I did not complain. However the staff is overworked. Hopefully they are financially compensated. If not I wouldn't be surprised if they all quit.

Didn't book SMOKING rooms- but got two!

Pros: I can't think of anything that I liked about this hotel.
Cons: Setting up the "free" shuttle service is complicated, but then you have to hound the Reception staff so they don't forget to bring you to the airport.
Location: The hotel is at least 25 minutes away from Dublin airport, not 15 minutes as they advertise.
Do not stay here. It was the worst hotel experience that my family and I had in our 3 weeks of traveling in Europe. We arrived at the hotel late- 11pm, and although Travelocity guaranteed that we would have 2 nonsmoking rooms, we were given smoking rooms, which we were not told by the Reception Staff when we were handed our key cards. My husband and I were exhausted from traveling all day, and didn't notice the smoke smell in the room when we first walked in because the air conditioner was on high (to disguise the smell?) When we had settled into the room we noticed an ash tray, and when we turned down the air conditioner we smelled the smoke. We could have gone down to Reception to complain, but it was incredibly late, and my gut feeling was that the hotel was booked solid, so they wouldn't be able to switch our rooms. (Our sons were also given a smoking room).The next morning when we checked out I complained about the smoking rooms and was told that they had overbooked the hotel the night before. We were given the last 2 rooms available in the hotel, and other Guests were switched to other hotels when they arrived. We were not given an option to stay in another hotel, but we would have if the Reception Staff had been honest with us and told us that we were going to be given the last 2 rooms but that they were smoking rooms, and did we want those rooms or nonsmoking rooms in another hotel. I would have chosen another hotel.
