The location is stellar -- right in the middle of Temple Bar. My wife and I never had more than a 15 min walk to anywhere we went for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Even the Guinness brewery is only a mile or so walk. Many other attractions are close by. We didn't use it, but there is an airport bus stop across the street. Airport took 20 mins by car. Valet service was on point and not outrageously expensive at around 30$ a night.
Rooms themselves look pretty updated including the bathroom and were quiet and spacious. Staff recognized my status and upgraded me during what I assume was a very busy time of year (New Years). Came with a free buffet breakfast per my status which was pretty good as well. I didn't try either of the bars, but the cocktails list looked inventive.
I have been a lifetime platinum elite with Marriott for years and honestly I may start staying at Westins in the future if this property is indicative of other Westins.
Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Dublin.
