The Morrison, a DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel
Ranked #9 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 July 2013 via mobile

Stayed two nights at the Morrison. The hotel was recently updated, very clean, and run by a very friendly and helpful staff. The bed was a bit firm, but acceptable. Free wifi and great A/C were a plus.

The location was excellent. The walk to Temple Bar was about one minute over the river. A 15 minute walk east will get you to the Tara St. DART station, which can take you out to the coast.

Overall, great hotel. I would definitely stay again in the future.

Dear Brian H,

Thank you for such a positive review following your stay with us - it was great to read that you enjoyed the hotel on so many levels.

I did note your comment on the firmness of our beds, and am happy to report that new mattress 'toppers' will be at the hotel for the start of August and should make for a great addition to the comfort levels while also maintaining support levels.

Again on our location, great to read and all important when visiting a city such as Dublin where so much of it can be walked.

I hope we will get to welcome you back when next in Dublin.

Best

I was going to be in Dublin for what amounted to be 10 hours, so I chose The Morrison as my hotel. I was getting into the city that evening and flying out early the next morning, so I had considered staying at an airport hotel. I'm so happy that I stayed at The Morrison instead.

If you only have a few hours to enjoy the city, this is a great place to be. We were greeted with great service and warm cookies. Check-in took maybe 5 minutes, and that included setting up a wake-up call and booking a cab to the airport for the next morning. We dumped our bags in our room (which was very nice - clean, etc.) and headed across the Ha'Penny Bridge to enjoy a pint and live music at a nearby pub. The location really let us experience the essence of Dublin in a short amount of time, and the hotel was a very pleasant place to stay.

For anyone who might be deterred by the pink/purple/blue color themes... don't be. All of the lights turn off with the click of a switch.

Dear GooseNYC,

Many thanks for your very positive review following what was definitely a brief stay with us.

I was very pleased to read you managed to sample so much of Dublin city and that our location alongside the excellent transport links to the airport, made for easy access.

I have passed on your feedback to the front desk team and know it will be appreciated. On our colour themes you are very right - they are easily controlled via a switch and I am sure we have a colour to suit everyone's own tastes!

Thank you again for having chosen us in the first instance,

With kind regards,

Patrick Joyce

This place is just across the river walking bridge to Temple Bar area in London. Behind the hotel is the mall and shopping district. It's a great location, easy walking access to everything, and just really, really nice. It's worth the price.

We spent a night here at the beginning of June, I was really looking forward to a night away, just the two of us and was really looking forward our first night at The Morrison.....I couldn't wait to leave....We stay in the city a lot and love to try different hotels...this was my worst hotel room ever...in any city..................

We were checked in by Paul, one got the impression he' d rather be somewhere else but put on the receptionists face because he had to..not my cup of tea...and although it was late when we checked in and was one of the hottest evenings/nights of the year he thoughtlessly sent us to a room I can only advise should be turned into a storage room immediately...I will never forget it... ROOM 136.......It had a window....with opaque glass,you couldnt open(surely a fire hazard) and hideous glass bedside lockers..and it was tiny...I literally couldn't breath..however we needed to eat and didn't bother saying anything as we were tired and felt it was only for one night so it literally wasn't worth getting agitated about and by the time we got back to it it might be better/cooler....IT WASN'T....I woke at 6 am and counted the hours to get out of it and wondered how anyone in reservations on a really hot night in the Capital would dream of using this room...it definately would not have appeared to be down to full capacity as the bar was lifeless with no atmosphere whatsoever and the hotel just felt like it was trying too hard....and losing....AWFUL....

On the plus side it is in a fairly good location beside Dublins "Italian Quarter" and I'm sure some of the rooms facing onto the Liffey(I wouldn't know..)might be airier..with windows with glass..that open.....the breakfast room was airy/modern and breakfast is served til 12 midday and the staff there seemed pleasant..

We will not be returning or recommending it to anyone....book with caution and make sure the room allocated is not on this corridor! There's far better hotels in Dublin in the same price range... we stayed in The Fitzwilliam the following night and it was a totally different experience from start to finish.....

Perfect location across the Liffey from Temple Bar, Grafton St shopping and Trinity College campus. Far enough away from the action to be quiet in the evening. Recently remodeled in a fun, hipster decor. Great beds, shower, and breakfast!

Dear shelleyae,

It was lovely to read your review of the hotel and to know that you enjoyed so much about the hotel.

Our location is a fantastic asset to the hotel and one which so many of our guests enjoy and comment on allowing proximity to everything Dublin has to offer.

Following our refurbishment thank you also for acknowledging our new standards - we put a lot of thought and effort into the 'must haves' from a great bed, to power shower and of course our breakfast. It is great to have them acknowledged.

We hope you visit again and that we can welcome you back soon,

With best regards,

Patrick Joyce

The hotel is located on the banks of the River Liffey and only a few steps across from the quarter of Temple Bar.
Recently refurbished rooms offer a very comfortable staying a very stylish place with a discerning atmosphere.
Breakfest is served in the Halo room complete with it’s eye-catching Birdman sculpture and high ceilings that rise to the second floor.

Room Tip: All rooms are comfortable but of course the ones with a view over River Liffey are the best.

Thank you for such a positive review on Tripadvisor following your stay with us. I was delighted to read that you enjoyed the hotel and our facilities following our recent refurbishment and also the service levels.

Our new breakfast is proving to be a huge hit with our residents and our Birdman sculpture is certainly growing in notoriety amongst diners - glad you liked the design in here also.

The hotel once again didn't disappoint. Following it's take-over by Hilton the customer service and chilled relaxed atmosphere is still second to none. The bar area now has a resident DJ playing chilled out Ibiza type vibe. A relaxed haven in the middle of a bustling Dublin!

Dear Tracey F,

Thank you for your review and fantastic to read that you found the hotel to be a real oasis of calm in what is a very busy city.

Our DJ plays every Friday and Saturday evening and receives super feedback both from residents and locals alike who might be visiting for a meal or after work drinks. We think it certainly sets the right vibe for the bar and restaurant.

Thank you for having chosen us and I hope that we will get to welcome you back again in the near future.
