Loud doors
My only complaint is how loudly the doors close. I got woken up several times by a group of very loud people who were slamming doors all night and yelling in the hallway.

Wonderful stay
Everything was wonderful. We were right downtown in Dublin so everything was a walk away, including parking! Service was great.

Read the Reviews
Read the reviews and pay attention to them. I knew there was a bar on the property, and some people complained about that. My dorm room faced the street and despite house rules, people would stand out front and talk, drink, and sing until all hours of the night. It was hot and we had to keep our windows open. The smoke came into the room and the noise made it difficult to sleep. The room was not cleaned when other guests left, dirty towels were left in the room but we ended up using them for bath mats due to the shower filling the bathroom floor with water. One gentleman at the front desk was friendly and nice enough to schedule me a taxi for the next morning.
