How was the hotel? The hotel was fine. We could see a little wear and tear in the halls, and our twin room was small with the roll-away that had been set up for our son. However, all was ready for us when we arrived. We also appreciated the wine that had been set out to help us bring in the new year. There was a bar downstairs as well, from which my husband got a cold beer. When we got ready for bed, I noticed paneling on the tub that reminded me of the paneling that you used to see on station wagons, but the facilities were certainly adequate. A small desk was in the corner, at which I wrote several postcards. Internet access available for a fee. There was enough storage space for our luggage and clothes, and everything was clean.
How was the location? We did not mind being a little bit apart from the town's center. Each morning it took a brisk 10-minute walk to get to St. Stephen's Green, a delightful park that was donated to the city by the Guinness family. There you could hop on a tour bus or hail a cab. Closer to the hotel was The Barge, a family-friendly pub that allowed children until 9pm.
Extras? Breakfast was included each morning in our rate. Service began at 7am, and we enjoyed the scrambled eggs, toast, fruit, and coffee. The service was also always friendly.
Bottom line? This is a comfortable hotel. It's not the lap of luxury, but it's a solid three-star Hilton. We were certainly comfortable throughout our stay.
