Stayed here for 2 nights in March.
Certainly one of the better hotels in the area but really doesn't feel like a 5 star,
Staff in the Bar/Lounge can be a little cold at times & on more than one occasion asked us would we like to settle the bill and sometimes by just placing it on table without being prompted.
The rooms are fine. Nothing special to report.
Stairs to the downstairs bathroom by the bar were lethal on more than one occasion as it had been raining & the stairs are made of marble. Lawsuit waiting to happen.
We had afternoon tea in both The Shelbourne & The Westbury around the corner,
Service was much better in the Westbury.
Afternoon Tea at the time of our stay was 'Titanic Themed' which was laughable as none of the staff could give us any explanation as what was 'Titanic Themed' about it.... Apart from the fact it was a disaster?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The world famous Shelbourne Hotel is a timeless landmark in the heart of Dublin. Located only 9km from Dublin Airport, The Shelbourne overlooks the magnificent St. Stephen’s Green, and is just seconds from the city’s sights and shops, commerce and culture. But the connection to Ireland’s capital runs far deeper than location. Founded in 1824, The Shelbourne, a Renaissance Hotel is a place where history has been made – the Irish Constitution was drafted, literary masterpieces were penned and society was shaped. Today, as part of the worldwide Renaissance brand, the hotel has been dramatically restored to its full original splendour. Each of the 265 bedrooms are unique, but they all share a sense of charm, style and above all quality…100% Egyptian cotton bedding by Rivolta Carmignani, elegant marble bathrooms with luxury amenities, flat-screen televisions, high speed internet access and climate control. The Shelbourne has 19 beautifully appointed suites, 12 of which are named after famous guests who have stayed at the hotel, such as Princess Grace, John F. Kennedy and Michael Collins and Eamonn De Valera. At the very heart of Dublin’s very best times for almost 200 years, The Shelbourne continues to be the city’s favourite hotel for fine food and drinks in an incomparable environment for generations of Dubliners. The Shelbourne offers a superb choice of dining venues; The Saddle Room, a modern steak and seafood restaurant, The Lord Mayor’s Lounge which serves Dublin’s only true afternoon tea, the renowned Horseshoe Bar and No. 27 Bar & Lounge, the place to see and be seen in Dublin! The hotel features a luxurious Spa offering six treatment rooms, including a suite for two people to share their spa experience together, a manicure and pedicure area as well as an opulent relaxation room. A 17.5m swimming pool, thermal facilities, dance studio and state-of-the-art gymnasium complete the facilities. ... more less
