Hotel Review: Conrad, Dublin

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

I was in Dublin recently for the Flyertalk Moderator’s Event. Looking for a couple of Hilton stays I chose the Conrad during the Hilton Summer Sale. Priced at EUR149 (non-refundable) it was a pretty good deal. At checkout of the purchase I was offered a chance to upgrade to a suite, on a standby basis, for EUR69. Two days before I arrived the hotel emailed to confirm the upgrade and I was duly charged the additional fee.

Arriving after a long journey from the airport in the rain, I was glad to be inside the cosy Reception area.

The Reception desk required just my credit to confirm my identity. Producing the card, the agent explained that breakfast was included as a Diamond HHonors member and that I did not need a voucher. She provided a code for the WiFi in the room and pretty soon I was off to the lifts, just up the stairs, and to my room.

ROOM
Located at the end of the corridor, I opened the door to a proper two room suite.

There was a proper Nespresso machine in the room with plenty of capsules.

BATHROOM

The large bathroom with a tub, separate shower, plenty of towels and some nice toiletries.

THE BURGER TEST

The weather was so bad that I decided to stay in and have Room Service dinner. The beef sliders were lovely:

The separate chocolate cake was pretty nice:

It was a good night’s sleep and I went down to breakfast early. They operate both a hot and cold buffet as part of the Diamond Breakfast offering. You can also order items form the menu which were either free or chargable for a small number of Euros. In truth the buffet was more than adequate and the toast they brought to the table was super.

A special mention for the cheery red flowers in the Reception.
