The Morrison, a DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel
Ranked #9 of 152 Hotels in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The Morrison is a very nice hotel located right in the downtown area of Dublin, just across the river from the Temple Bar area where you can find anything you would like as a tourist to Dublin. On my visit (4/27/14-4/28/14), the staff were great to deal with, and even accommodated my bags until the 29th, as I had an apartment booked somewhere else for leisure after working in Dublin. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to see some of the nightlife of Dublin.

Dear Michael F,

Thank you for your review of the Morrison Hotel. It was a pleasure to read and am delighted that you had an enjoyable stay with us.

I am glad the location was convenient for all your needs, we are very lucky with our central location as it is within walking distance of all major attractions yet not too close by to the hustle and bustle of the busy city centre so that it is also quiet. Thank you for mentioning that we held your bags for a few days also, it was our pleasure and were more than happy to help.

I hope to welcome you back again very soon and thank you agin for your time,

Kindest Regards,

Marion O Connor

I checked in here with my partner for a night and had a memorable experience.

Check-in was painless and the lady (unfortunately can't remember her name but she had blonde hair) was very helpful. I even signed up for the Hilton rewards program after her recommendation. The chocolate cookie was also a nice treat.

The room, on the fourth floor, was spacious and recently re-furbed. I really liked the decoration and colours. Might not be to everyones taste though. The bed was massive and extremely comfy.

The bathroom was big and the shower was great. Being on the fourth floor, there was no issues with pressure.

A flat screen TV was in the room with the most common channels, enough to keep you entertained when in the room. We also had free wifi which was great. A lot of 4* and 5* hotels tend to charge a small fortune for WiFi so this was very welcomed.

We did find the room a little hot and didn't find the air con (built into the wall) wasn't as efficient as it could be. But hey, this is Ireland, you don't expect sunshine and warm weather all the time.

Location is great. North side of the river, directly across from Temple bar (main tourist destination). Not far to walk to O'Connell street either.

Check out was a little busy because a group of customers had began checking in. We had to wait about 10 minutes to get seen, but that's understandable.

One issue I did have was my bill. We checked out fine and paid without any issue. However I've recently checked my credit card statement and noticed an additional payment. I contacted the hotel and was told it was for mini bar items, of which we never used. The hotel was apologetic and advised this would be refunded. So it was fixed to my satisfaction.

Enjoyed the room, the bar, and my time in this hotel. Bathroom a little rusty so would have maintenance focus on that in the near future. Surprised because doubletree has such a wide variety of products.

Recently started a trip to ireland with a few nights stay at the Morrison. A location right on the Liffy leaves you with walking distance of pretty much everything. With instructions from the desk clerk we found our way on the tram to Kilmainham Gaol, very easily walked from there to Guinness storehouse. Temple bar, the spire, trinity college, st Stephen green all within blocks. The hotel room was very nice, clean, comfortable beds and nice bath. Had a little hiccup on check-in but that was resolved and we were given a room regardless. Would definitely stay here again.

We recently stayed 2 nights at the Morrison Doubletree. It was very comfortable and roomy. Excellent location with parking close by. The room decor was a little too modern for me (definitely not the homey feeling we like), but staff and food at the Morrison Grill made up for it!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 235. Quiet room with a king size bed.

Thank you for your review of the Morrison Hotel. I was delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found the rooms spacious and comfortable, as we have recently renovated the Morrison Hotel is not your typical Doubletree with regards to decor and of course I understand that it is not to everyones tastes however I am glad that the staff and Morrison Grill made made up for this and you enjoyed your stay with us.

I do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back very soon and thank you again, I will be sure to pass your compliments to our staff.

The location right on the river Liffey can't be beat. Step out of the hotel, across the millenium bridge and you are right in the Temple Bar district. The front of the hotel, however, is NOT on Lower Ormond Quay which is a little misleading. The front of the hotel is on Jervis Street so watch for it. If you miss it it's at least a 10 minute drive back around all the one way streets in Dublin.

The rooms are very hip and cool using infused lighting to give color to the white walls. We enjoyed the view of the river. As with most hotels in Ireland there isn't air conditioning so you have to open the window to cool off (which can be noisy depending on which way your room faces. We found the prices for breakfast were steep but there are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby to choose from.

Parking is less than one block north and one additional block north is the Jervis shopping center which has every shop you would need (Boots, M&S, etc). I really can't say enough about how great this location is. It's worth a little extra money.

Room Tip: River room is great unless you want to sleep with the window open - then traffic noise could be an i...

Along with other members of our family we stayed at this hotel to attend my daughters wedding reception which was also held at this hotel. In total 9 rooms were booked my our family and 3 rooms by the grooms family. All enjoyed the experience, with well appointed well furnished rooms, excellent service and very friendly staff. The location of the hotel is ideally placed for transport to/from the airport with transfer times of 20 minutes, and a short walk of less than 5 minutes to cross the river and be in the heart of Dublin. The main shopping area of Dublin is less than a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Regarding the reception, the food (and I recommend the slow cooked beef), service, room available was more than sufficient for the 130 attendee's. The planning and detailed execution of the that plan by the staff was faultless. Many thanks form the bride's parents.
