This hotel has many amenities but by far the best was the staff. Everyone from the front desk, to the concierge to the wait staff for tea were absolutely fabulous. We were traveling with our 8 month old for the first time and chose this hotel because of the reviews and were not disappointed. They were able to accommodate us very early after a long flight from the states and even upgraded us to a suite when we returned at the end of our trip. The old style elegance and modern art throughout the hotel and gardens just added to a wonderful stay.

Very nice stay at the Merrion. Terrific location, good staff, good rooms, nice restaurants. Would especially recommend for business as it's quiet and unfussy. Only downfall was truly lousy room service - definitely make the effort to enjoy the fabulous restaurants instead of staying in your room!

If you can stretch to staying here when you are in Dublin, do so. It is incomparable with other Dublin hotels.

Don't overlook the excellent hotel restaurant.

This was the last splurge after the property crash when I booked my wife in here after she had given birth to our last child. The staff were incredibly accommodating considering she had a 1 day old baby with her!

Stayed overnight here on a warm July day - would have stayed longer if our schedule allowed. The staff were very friendly and helpful from the moment we pulled up at the front door, tired from our long drive from the coast. Reading some of the other recent reviews, we did not experience either snobbishness nor overcrowded/empty public areas that others encountered - not even when the doorman had to pick up piles of detritus-filled plastic bags that the car ends up with on long road trips! The lounges are beautiful and elegant, and if it isn't raining heavily, all guests should take a little walk in the courtyard gardens - a little piece of gorgeous landscaped serenity in the bustling city.

They gave us a large room in the Main Wing - they didn't mention this but I think it may have been an upgrade as it seemed a little larger than described when I booked. Even when my child was overexcited or had tantrums from being tired, they were patient and smiley and never looked disapproving. The room was very comfortable, airconditioned, beautifully furnished and quiet - we slept like logs!

A brilliant plus (never seen in many 5 star or other hotels) is that the breakfast in your package can be served in your room at ANY time without extra charge - most others insist you trek down to the dining room even if you don't feel up to it. The breakfast was delicious with a huge choice of items. We didn't have time to go to the pool but I was impressed that they allowed children in it.

Dining at the Cellar restaurant was wonderful. They had colouring sets for my child and kindly let us share our main courses (when I couldn't finish mine) with our friend and even giving him an extra portion of starter to go with his wine! Felt like you were dining in your friend's home - if your friend has starched linen and silver service! I agree there are many staff members who are European who are not native English speakers but this is actually a common situation in many 5 star hotels nowadays as EU workers move about freely to train and become hoteliers. (I actually think they were more easy going and enthusiastic than in many hotels staffed by locals where we sometimes encounter the attitude "if you don't like how we do things in our culture and adhere to it, don't bother to visit our city".)

The doormen were brilliant, helping us with directions to drive out of town and getting us taxis. The reception staff were helpful and efficient throughout. yes, it is not a cheap hotel (hence only 4 stars for value rather than 5) - but I think it is justified. I really couldn't fault anything in this hotel. We stayed here on a busy and packed Christmas Eve several years ago (with no child) and they were just as helpful and friendly then.

1st stay at The Merrion and loved it. We were looking for luxury for a special occassion and it certainly lived up to our expectations.Totally pampered for the weekend. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. Great attention to detail, great service and great food. We didn't want to leave.
