The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean, the food is good and they make a great Irish Coffee! We got a family room; which has more beds than we needed but that was a-ok! We love Kilkenny so much that we decided to stay anothet night. The only real downfall is that it is attached to a nightclub...

The room was small but nice, bed was decent. Had a very nice and large tub in the bathroom. Building is very cool, numerous half stories and an elevator that takes you to the part of the building with rooms. Plenty of parking which is free to those staying at the hotel. Not an awe-inspiring arrangement, but a good deal...
