Having frequented the Gresham Hotel for many years, we were more than surprised & disappointed at the situation that arose there on Friday 2nd December. As a group of anywhere between 8 & 10 people, we occasionally meet for lunch at this centrally located venue, & have been doing so for around 25 years. We meet in the Writer's Lounge where lunch is served & we're always accommodated regarding seating arrangements. On each & every occasion the waiting staff are so welcoming, friendly, efficient & professional. We arrived early as usual - around 11.45am for coffees beforehand. On this occasion the manager (a very stern looking individual) would not under any circumstances ALLOW more than a few people to sit together (there were going to be 8 of us on this occasion) We were told with a brisk wave of the hand that if we wanted to sit together we could take ourselves off to Toddy's!! (a separate bar area next door & a different entity altogether!!) We were basically 'getting the brush off' & we actually could not believe the attitude of this most disagreeable individual & the manner in which we were treated! There were hardly any customers around the lounge area & with just a couple of tables reserved it was not a case of not enough space etc. It's also expensive enough so one would imagine customers would be treated with respect & made to feel welcome. We are now thougherly disillusioned with the new format in the Riu Plaza Gresham as this is so far removed from the 'True Irish Welcome' so many establishments pride themselves on. We'll be moving on to pastures new for our next get together & we'll also be passing on the details of this very unpleasant experience to everyone we know! Collapse

We have stayed at The Gresham before and found it very welcoming and in a great location. Sadly this visit we were not impressed. On arrival we were really pleased to have received a room upgrade. However, Sunday morning, we found there was no hot water to shower or bathe. It was practically impossible to get in touch with reception from the telephone in our room. My husband had to walk down to reception where he encountered a long queue. The chambermaids on our floor were able to tell us that the hotel had no hot water. When we eventually spoke to reception they confirmed this and hoped we'd have hot water in half hour, this was at 10.00am. Considering we had to check out by 11am and have breakfast, we asked if we could check out later in order to have a shower. We were told yes. We had breakfast. The buffet in terms of cold was very good, however the cooked food was lukewarm and not very appetising. Not what we'd expect from a four star hotel. Having returned to our room, no hot water! We had to leave without being able to wash properly. I was expecting an apology or some kind or acknowledgement for the inconvenience while checking out. None was forthcoming. I had to mention the lack of hot water and got a paltry reduction in drinks from the previous evening. This is not the kind of service I would expect from this standard hotel. We shall be looking at other hotels for any future visits. Collapse

Very well located on O'Connell Street, this hotel is a great stepping off point for travellers to Dublin. The welcome and staff service was excellent. But the rooms are very tired, the bathrooms in worse condition. 1990's tiles and stained sinks are not good. The bed, however, is very comfortable and the room size good. It is a large hotel. The common parts are fine, but rooms do need a makeover. Breakfast choice good. Buffet based, but it could have been warmer. Was genuinely disappointed overall. Investment required by management.

Arrive on the AirCoach service from the airport and you will be dropped right outside the front entrance to the hotel (ramp and stepped access). Check-in was friendly and efficient. Our room in the Lavery Wing was at the rear of the hotel, overlooking a functional internal court, so quieter than those overlooking O'Connell Street (where in November 2016 there were extensive works to install tram tracks down the centre of the road). The room was well-equipped and clean. Room service is efficient and can start very early; use the "traffic lights" on the door if you do not want to be disturbed. Breakfast is best value if booked along with the room, and offers a wide range of hot and cold items.....fried eggs are replenished regularly so that they do not resemble cold rubber. The Writers Bar is a pleasant place to sit with a drink and watch the world go by. The General Post Office is a short stroll down the road and the River Liffy with its many bridges is around five minutes away. Fifteen to twenty minutes on foot sees you at Trinity College or in the heart of the Temple Bar area. We will certainly be staying here again on our next visit to the city. Collapse

We stayed in this hotel when we were in town for the Georgia Tech Football Game. This was a very convenient location - we could walk to all the major attractions in Dublin and it was also convenient to a shopping Promenade. The room was spacious, though it was a bit dated. Similarly, the room overheated despite cool temperatures outside. Given how expensive this hotel was, I would have expected more modern rooms and better temperature control. Collapse
