We stayed here recently when attending a concert in the O2 and I can honestly say that we totally enjoyed our stay. We had stayed here a good few years back and we were glad to see that the standards had not slipped. The underground car parking is just fantastic as parking in the area can be a nightmare with the close proximity to different venues.
The staff on reception when checking in we're very polite and helpful, and yes people might say,,it's their job but believe me when I say it was totaly genuine. We really liked the security aspect of the hotel also, as you can not gain access to the rooms without swiping your room key in the elevator to go up. The bar food was lovely and the staff were also brilliant. The room was clean and comfortable. Only problem we did have was with wifi in the room but this did not bother us to much.
We will certainly be staying here again. It was such a comfortable relaxing stay eventhough it was only for one night. Also we found out that the hotel do packages for "The Grand Canal Theatre" shows which are great and should be looked into if anyone is travelling for a show. We will certainly be keeping this in mind. I should have said "Bord Gais Energy Theatre" , but I did prefer the original name...:0)
