The Shelbourne was a favourite - but like other hotels that expanded over the last decade the banking system has just taken over its control and accountants will have a major influence on its operation, so keep an eye on the reviews.

I have always like the Westin, and you really can't go wrong, and this hotel will have the consistency of stable management and control.

Both are in excellent locations - if it was me, I'd probably now veer towards the Westin until the dust settlles on NAMA hotels??

None of them!

Although I havent stayed in either the Shelbourne or the Conrad, I have stayed in the Westin and wrote a review at the time tripadvisor.ie/ShowUserReviews-g186605-d2126…

Was in the Shelbourne last Saturday afternoon and personally I feel it has lost its finesse and 'grandeur'

My 'best' of hotels of a 'comparible standard' would be based on last Saturday's stay in The Merrion Hotel http://www.merrionhotel.com/ Now that's a good one! I have written a review which should be posted in the next couple of days.

I have just had a weekend at the Conrad. I use the hotel regularly and love it. The breakfast is buffet is wonderful. The hotel is in a very quiet location and is comfortable. The standard rooms are quite plain, but the beds are lovely.

Another vote for the Conrad here. I stay there regulary and the rooms are always clean and well presented. If you want to push teh boat out a bit it is worth booking a suite. Very nice.
