To the Crowne staff: please do not stop making the cinnamon waffles that you have made for so many years, and that I look forward to each time I come back to Dublin.
The Crowne Plaza Blanchardstown is an exceptional hotel for business travelers. The staff is warm and welcoming, I find that you get out of the relationship what you put in, meaning if you're upbeat and friendly with them, that much and more will be passed back to you. Rooms are comfortable and clean, with somewhat over the top modern touches. Free Internet / Wifi often accompanies your booking. If you partake in their breakfast buffet, don't forget to get the waffle, it's a sweet and delicious way to start your day and so good you'll be planning what time you go down for breakfast the following day. Free of charge transportation is arranged to and from local business offices through the front desk the prior evening (who does that, great perk!). There are many "happy hour" specials in the bar. The hotel is located within walking distance to the center of Blanchardstown, which boasts several pubs (the downstairs of the Vineyard, Chicken Club no onions and a Guinness, is where I'll be) - the walk is a good 20 minutes. A shopping complex is literally across the street from the hotel. Dublin city center is a taxi ride away.
All and all, Crowne Plaza Blanchardstown goes out of its way to accommodate travelers with a warm attitude, and several complimentary services and perks that make your stay both more enjoyable and convenient.
