I can say without reservation that this is THE NICEST hotel that I've ever stayed in anywhere in the world. If I could give this hotel 6 Stars I would.
What makes this hotel so special is the dedication to services and elegance. The property itself is stunning. The hotel marries old world elegance with modern comforts seamlessly. The staff, from the bellmen out front to housekeeping, are all dedicated to providing first class service and they do so with such sincerity.
I had mentioned in my reservation request that I was celebrating a special occasion and the hotel was so kind to upgrade me to a wonderful room French doors overlooking the gardens. The room and bathroom were truly spectacular.
Unfortunately I spent one night at The Merrion. I regret that during my stay I failed to really enjoy all of the amenities that the hotel has to offer. I did dine in the Cellar restaurant that adjoins the hotel and it was a fabulous meal. The food and the service were first rate in a relaxed and enjoyable setting.
While I don't find myself visiting Dublin regularly, I would most certainly stay here again in a heartbeat if given the chance. I would also recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates tremendous service and the classic elegance of a luxury hotel.
