I really enjoyed my 2 night stay at the Gresham hotel.
I arrived a couple of hours before check-in and they explained that they had been really busy the night before and didn't have any rooms ready but that the concierge would take care of my luggage. Then the receptionist saw that I was from Canada and asked me if I had travelled that day and I said I'd been travelling for 24 hours! Immediately one of the other receptionists got on the phone to housekeeping and they located me an upgraded room that was ready. The first receptionist then promptly got back onto housekeeping and got them to 'VIP' the room.
I checked in 2 hours early and enjoyed the extras that the receptionist had arranged for me, like a bathrobe, slippers, chocolates and sparkling water. I was so extremely tired and so very grateful for their thoughtfulness and was able to get into the room and get some rest so that I could then enjoy the rest of the day in Dublin.
I don't think you could wish for a more conveniently located hotel for everything in Dublin. I loved being able to pop out for shopping, etc.
The hotel and room was great and I loved dining in the Bistro.
After checking out I found a minor error with my bill which they immediately rectified when I e-mailled.
I enjoyed the Gresham and thanks particularly receptionists for your thoughtfulness!!
