The best thing about the ugly-on-the-outside, seven-story, redbrick and smoked-glass Conrad is the spectacular views out over the city, so ask for—no, insist on—a room on one of the top three floors. Just off St. Stephen's Green, the Conrad firmly aims for international business travelers. Gleaming light-color marble graces the large formal lobby. Rooms are rather cramped but are nicely outfitted with natural-wood furnishings, painted in sand colors and pastel greens,
and have Spanish marble in the bathrooms. A note to light sleepers: the air-conditioning/heating system can be noisy. The Alex restaurant specializes in seafood and Alfie Byrne's is a slightly fake "Dublin pub."

This is a nicely understated place, with touches of authentic Irishness but heaps more blue chip European touches. Phenomenally comfortable beds and pillows mean that rarest of things: a hotel that offers a good night's sleep.

I visited the Conrad in Jan 2003 for six nights and did not experience any of the negatives that people have commented on before. The hotel is geared for business but the rooms are very comfortable and the service was exceptional. The staff was extremely helpful and went out of their way to make the stay great. The turndown service is great and includes mineral water etc.. and even tuning the stereo to some nice classical music. Over all we were
very happy but the price can put people off - 200 + usd. We stayed using the frequent user points from hilton so our stay was free.

I stayed here for 1 week on business and found the hotel to be way overrated. The rooms were dull, room service food was terrible and the concierge was unfriendly. After going back a few times on business and staying in other hotels, I will never try this one again. There are so many other choices with the same features and great location that are way better. My advice, shop around....
