We have been lucky enough to stay in 3 great hotels in the St Stephen's Green area and the Merrion definitely had the edge. We were there for a short stay for a wedding. Every aspect of the service was fantastic, the hotel and rooms were well looked after and we were happy that our money was well spent. I...

I brought my partner here in April 2015. Room was beautiful, it was the biggest & softest bed in the world! I can also highly recommend the afternoon tea!! We had a slight issue with room noise which was dealt with promptly and the manager was extremely helpful. Can recommend.

Spent a lovely evening with some friends for a special celebration last Thurs (30th July) received fantastic service from our waiter "Mayven" who had a warm welcome for us on arrival and was extremely attentive and very helpful throughout the evening . The food was delicious and the service was even better. Highly recommend.

It is an elegant place. Not pretentious, they have the typical Irish, no-nonsense and light footed style. Location of hotel is quite good, nice park around the corner. The eye for service is clearly there, including staff speeding up their strides to open the doors for you. Room service is prompt and queen rooms are very complete in their facilities....

We only spent one night at the Merrion and other than terrible wifi reception in our room, the stay was very good. Great service from the bellmen and front desk as well as the concierge. Beautiful artwork throughout the hotel so be sure to get the guide and spend some time viewing the collection at the Merrion.
