Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?
Eh, not really. I had high expectations.

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
2 nights stay, first night cash and second nights on points. Booked the cheapest room and received Executive suite (only because my Junior suite wasn't ready)

How are the rooms?
Seriously lacking natural light in the rooms, in the bedroom part of the suite there are no windows!

They need a refurbish and really don't feel that special.

How is the exec. lounge?
N/A

Did you receive a welcome gift?
Fruit and nuts but no gift. I even complained on checkout and was told I'd get 2500 but yet to receive after 7 days.

How was the minibar?
No wine! but some spirits and beers. The food is included in the RA ambassador benefit which is good.

What was good and what was bad?

-Good
- Good upgrade
- Negotiated free breakfast due to lack of other RA benefits

-Bad
- public transport to the centre isn't so great
- rooms showing some age
- rooms need a refurbish
- expensive for what you get

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
- No, often best part of 300 Euro's or 50k points. Definitely not worth this.

Would you return?
Probably not, would use an Airbnb next time I'd return to Dublin.
