The room was small for the price and location. When we got to the hotel, the car park was full and was informed to park in another hotel car park. I asked if this would be validated and told no we have to walk to the hotel with our bags during a storm. I also asked was breakfast included and also told no and that would additional charge for this. I don't think I'll be staying in the Spencer Hotel again anytime soon.

I can't write a review about our experience in the The Spencer Hotel as we were rebooked to their sister property The Morgan Hotel. We booked The Spencer Hotel because I took my daughter to her very first concert ever in the Three Arena and The Spencer is located very nearby. However the hotel was overbooked and we were booked out to their sister hotel The Morgan, a very trendy hotel in Tempe Bar. They really looked after us which made it an unforgettable trip for my daughter. 5-star service in a 4-star hotel.

We enjoyed our stay at the Spencer Hotel very much. The staff were friendly & helpful throughout all areas of the hotel. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and everything we needed was there for us. I stayed there with a 9yr old child who the staff gave great time to and the atmosphere in the hotel was lovely and gave us a secure and safe feeling. The location of the hotel was ideally situated for the 3arena which we attended on the night we stayed, the access to the Luas was ideal. Delighted we made the right choice of staying in the Spencer Hotel and will definitely stay again if we have a return visit to Dublin.
