When the going is good, the good get to work, and work harder than ever. This ethos typifies the work of the staff in Brooks Hotel. This is an extraordinarily successful hotel, enjoying boom time in Dublin when hotels are jam-packed night after night. And yet, if you stay and eat here, you could imagine that the team only got the doors open lasyt week, so determined are they to impress you, and to impress upon you that they are here to make certain that staying in Brooks will be as fine an experience as you can possibly have. They are a long-standing team, under manager Anne McKiernan, and they are relentlessly self-critical and demanding of themselves. When we tell people that we reckon Brooks to be the best hotel in Dublin city, it is those qualities that mark Brooks out as special: staff members who remember you every time, and staff members who are always striving. Of course, the hotel is super-comfortable, is in a peachy location, and offers everything you need. But it is because they offer the ineffable things – mind-reading service; meticulous cooking; perfectly composed public rooms with calming feng shui – that Brooks stands apart from other top-flight addresses. Other hotels know what you need. But Brooks knows what you want.
