Recently stayed at the Grand Canal hotel - we were looking for somewhere close to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre.
We went to see the Lion King.
The hotel is well located - close to pretty much everywhere. Aprox ten minute walk to Stephen Green and about 5 mins walk away from the Grand Canal. If you happen to be going to watch a game at the Aviva - your about 10 mins away from that as well.
In terms of location - perfect.
The parking is tight - you nearly need to get out the sun roof. here is plenty of street parking though, that is free from 18:00 Fri for the whole weekend.
At check in we were told that we were upgraded to an Executive suite. In truth I wouldnt like to see the normal bedrooms as the executive suites are a normal room size - it does come with a smart TV which has access to the internet. That really is the only bonus I see to the room.
The room was tidy and clean which is a must. The food in the resturant was good and the atmoshere in the bar was great.
Wasn't that impressed with the breakfast the following day. Bufft style which is fine - but it was extremely greasy, very unlike me I had t leave it.
All in all - probably would go back.
Certainly recomend it, the location is key.
