We splurged the first night at the Conrad since it had the better location than the other Hiltons in Dublin. The Conrad is close by to St Stephen’s Green and a ten minute walk to the shopping and dining Grafton street area.
We were checked in even though we arrived before check in time. Was upgraded to a corner deluxe room. Despite some negative reviews on tripadvisor and flyertalk, we didn’t have any issue with the hotel. It was definitely more upscale than a typical Hilton with marble bath rooms, huge bathtub, excellent toiletries and a nespresso machine in the room.
Breakfast as complimentary as Hilton Gold and it was one of the better breakfast we’ve had at a Hilton in a while. The choices weren’t as extensive as Hilton’s in Asia but the quality was definitely good. I got to try some black pudding.
