We booked in here for the Eagles concert as it was near enough to the O2 to walk there, about 20min and had free car parking. The staff were welcoming and first impressions were favourable. The room was a decent size, very clean and had all the essentials. We decided to eat at the hotel restaurant and once again no complaints. The food was well cooked and presented and arrived promptly. The room was very quiet at night, now this is why not the full five stars, one of the reasons it was quiet was the location, not exactly close to any happening stuff. It suited me fine but for someone looking to take in Dublin night life it was just a bit off the beaten track. But if a good nights sleep is wanted and your like me are a light sleeper, well it is worth the extra walk.
Free WiFi that was quite fast for a change also a bonus. For a three star hotel the Grand Canal delivers a fine service and I have no qualms in recommending it.
