DoubleTree by Hilton Dublin-Burlington Road announced today an extensive $21.6 million refurbishment of all public areas, guest rooms and suites, conference facilities, and exterior, as well as a completely-renovated Executive Lounge. This iconic Dublin hotel, formerly The Burlington Hotel and located just minutes from city-center, now offers discerning business and leisure travelers the perfect blend of luxury accommodations combined with contemporary amenities, modern facilities and convenient location.
Catering to business travelers and event professionals, the hotel boasts more than 30,000 square feet of innovative event space – ranging from intimate meeting rooms to conference event space accommodating groups up to 1,400. Features of the space include a dynamic conference center, a 13,000 square foot ballroom, and a separate business floor with 18 technology-savvy meeting rooms, a fully equipped business center and multiple function rooms.
The dedicated meeting floor, comprising of 18 naturally lit meeting rooms with built-in A/V technology and complimentary WiFi, provides an abundance of sophisticated meeting space and private breakout areas for large conferences held in the nearby Fitzwilliam Hall. A comfortable and spacious lobby allows executives to entertain colleagues with ease and the floor’s on call business center manager will assist with all requests and event execution, assuring a seamless experience for executives and attendees.
A stand-out amenity at The DoubleTree by Hilton Dublin – Burlington Road is the new Executive Lounge. The Lounge serves continental breakfast daily, afternoon refreshments and snacks, light bites in the evening and is available for Diamond Members, Executive Floor Guests, upgraded GOLD members, or can be purchased as an added amenity. The Lounge’s oversized tufted leather chairs, custom dark wood bar and modern décor provide a perfectly relaxing escape from the day. A special feature is ‘Pour your Own Guinness Tap,’ where a continually rolling video demonstration teaches guests the six steps behind the art of pouring the perfect pint. From the glass, to the tilt, to the settle, The Lounge’s Guinness tap is not located behind the bar, but available for guests to perfect their pour at their leisure.
As part of the enhancement program, the hotel updated all 501 guest rooms and suites. Each room now features air-conditioning, multi-channel TV, a coffee maker, hairdryer, trouser press, iron and ironing board, and Crabtree & Evelyn’s Citron Honey & Coriander bath amenities. Business travelers will enjoy the comforts from home with plush beds, oversized work desks and complimentary WiFi. At any time of day, guests can visit the hotel’s complimentary 24-hour fitness center, and evenings offer the opportunity to enjoy dining at the hotel’s Sussex Restaurant or have a pint or cocktail at B Bar, one of Dublin's most popular venues.
The hotel’s prime location is in walking distance to the city-center, the Royal Dublin Society, Aviva Stadium and within easy access to Dublin’s Convention Centre and Bord Gais Energy Theatre- allowing guests flexibility in mixing business with pleasure. Travelers can browse boutiques and designer stores on Grafton Street, visit nearby Phoenix Park, home to Dublin Zoo, or pay homage to Ireland's literary masters during their visit. Dublin's legendary nightlife is steps away and includes the world famous Temple Bar.
In addition to the new hotel renovations, DoubleTree’s signature philosophy, Create A Rewarding Experience for our guests (CARE), is evident in all aspects of the new property.
