This luxurious, chandelier-filled, modern hotel, just off Grafton Street is a favorite with elegantly dressed Dubliners who stop for afternoon tea in the Gallery, the spacious mezzanine-level main lobby, furnished with a grand piano and a grand view out onto the bustling streets. Bedrooms have handmade Irish furniture and carpets, plus duck-down duvets. Most inviting are the suites, which combine four-poster-bed opulence with a very understated, sleek look. The oddly titled Wilde–The Restaurant serves upscale lunches and dinners; while the street-level bar and brasserie Balfe's goes for a more relaxed menu and feel.
