I have written before about this hotel, but having stayed here for 5 days in July 2011 and one night in October 2011, I feel that I should update what I said. Back in July, when I happened to mention that I was staying for the week, I inquired about a possible upgrade to the executive floor. Like everything else in this hotel, it was no problem! It’s the simple things that make the difference, for example last time I stayed here I left behind my laptop mouse, I just inquired might it have been found, and within two clicks of the computer the receptionist was able to tell me that they had it – it was delivered to my room before I unpacked my case, now that is excellent service! The executive floor gives complementary access to the executive lounge with couches, large screen sky sports (!), unlimited tea, coffee, orange juice and water, complementary newspapers, etc. Hey it was just like having my own private penthouse in the hotel as it was mostly empty! You can even have a quick continental breakfast there if you are in a rush in the morning. Breakfast is still excellent. Staff always coming up asking if you want fresh coffee, etc. Their porridge is still not up to my standard, but that is such a subjective item to get right that I won’t be too critical in that regard. My October trip was just a quick one night stay, I was in a regular room this time but other than access to the executive lounge, you would not notice any difference in the rooms. This is still my number one place to stay whenever I go to Dublin.
