The Westin, Dublin, has reopened following a €500,000 hotel lobby transformation.
A multi-million investment programme has already added significant value to the guest experience. 2019 saw the unveiling of a refresh and expansion of the hotel’s Atrium Lounge, along with the creation of an additional space, the Library, and the addition of 19 bedrooms overlooking Trinity College and Westmoreland Street. The design of the new look lobby was led by Dublin-based architecture and interior-design firm, NODA.
“The brief for the lobby transformation project was simply to create a greater sense of arrival for our valued guests and to draw inspiration from our surrounding areas and support the local trade and artisan crafts industries, where possible. Guests can now naturally gravitate to the heart of the reception area, from where they can easily access bedrooms, the Atrium Lounge, The Mint bar and Morelands Grill restaurant,” said General Manager, Eamonn Casey.
An etched brass map of Dublin city in 1830 was commissioned and designed by ArtLoves and architectural drawings of the 19th Century Bank building; as well as prints of surrounding, historic area, are displayed in The Print Room, which leads to The Banking Hall. An oil painting of the River Liffey and its surrounds, by Irish artist Paul Morrison, provides colour and texture to the overall space.
The Westin Dublin’s renovation project showcases work by a range of Irish craftspeople and suppliers, including Tom Delaney, O’Donnell Furniture, and Cremins Moiselle.
A special re-opening package starts at €315 per room per night including breakfast.
