Sometimes navigation doesn’t take you where you wanted to go. Such was the case with the last mile to the Conrad Dublin, when Apple Maps insisted the best way to get to the hotel was via someone’s private garden. For someone driving on the left-hand side of the street for the first time, even a minor course correction was daunting. However, moments later I was pulling up to the Conrad’s front entrance and the doorman was seemingly almost anticipating my arrival.

While the Seventies building’s façade is stark, the newly-renovated lobby is warm and welcoming, with a large atrium and winsome and welcoming staff. The friendly doorman greeted me, took charge of my luggage, and provided escort to the reception desk. The front desk clerk and concierge were equally attentive and welcoming.

Check-in was quick and the front desk clerk showed me to my room, a King Junior Suite. Would I like coffee or tea? Yes, please, and some cupcakes appeared as if by magic as well.

THE ROOM

My generously sized room had a sitting area across from the bed featuring a very comfortable sofa and two side chairs. The room had wood floors while most hotels still tend to carpet everywhere. A light emerald-colored rug defined the bed area. The comfortable king size bed had a luxurious emerald throw as well as a single decorative matching pillow. I’m certain this was the same shade as was used on some of the furniture in the lobby, a subtle way to continue the theme.

The bathroom featured dual sinks, ample counter space, and a magnifying mirror. A generously-sized soaking tub was at the ready, as was a separate stall shower.

An assortment of Aromatherapy products was provided, as well as items a traveler might have forgotten, such as a toothbrush, comb, and razor. The bath and shower gel promised to “de-stress” and it unquestionably succeeded.
