Great location - beautiful hotel
Posted Sep 28, 2016
This was our last day in Ireland and our only day in the hotel which is centrally located with restaurants and shops at close/walking distance. After dropping off our rental car, we took a cab to the Guinness Brewery for a tour. Although I was skeptical thinking "I really don't enjoy these tours that much" I was very happy that we went. The tour and roof top bar are amazing. It truly is an excellent tour. We sampled our free glass of Guinness while enjoying the 360 degree views from the glassed walls of the bar - it is definitely a worthwhile stop.
The hotel itself is well situated - there is construction going on outside but it did not really affect us.
The rooms are beautifully appointed, clean and comfortable, although they really need to invest in comfortable pillows. I found this to be the only complaint in all our travel through this beautiful, enchanting country.
The staff at the Westin was very friendly and helpful.
We had eaten a late lunch so opted for a light meal at the downstairs bar. Although I only had a Caesar salad with prawns, it was un-impressive. I would had expected better from the Westin Hotel. Also, the main dining room was closed apparently due to management or ownership changes.
Overall our stay here was very good albeit short and I definitely recommend this hotel.
