DUBLIN, IRELAND—DoubleTree by Hilton Dublin-Burlington Road completed a $21.6 million refurbishment of all public areas, guestrooms and suites, conference facilities, exterior and Executive Lounge.

Formerly The Burlington Hotel, it has more than 30,000 sq. ft. of event space and features a new Executive Lounge. The Lounge serves continental breakfast daily, afternoon refreshments and snacks, light bites in the evening and features oversize tufted leather chairs, custom dark wood bar and modern décor. A special feature is "Pour your Own Guinness Tap," where a continually rolling video demonstration teaches guests the six steps behind the art of pouring the perfect pint. From the glass, to the tilt, to the settle.

The hotel updated all 501 guestrooms and suites. Each room now features air-conditioning, multi-channel television, a coffee maker, hairdryer, trouser press, iron and ironing board, and Crabtree & Evelyn’s Citron Honey & Coriander bath amenities, plush beds, oversize work desks and complimentary WiFi. Guests may visit the complimentary 24-hour fitness center, and evenings offer the opportunity to enjoy dining at the hotel’s Sussex Restaurant or have a pint or cocktail at B Bar.

The hotel is in walking distance to the city center, the Royal Dublin Society, Aviva Stadium and within easy access to Dublin’s Convention Centre and Bord Gais Energy Theatre.
