Dublin's Westin Hotel Reopens With New Look Lobby

Dublin's Westin Hotel has reopened with a new look lobby.


The Westin stated, "The Westin Dublin reopens this October having completed a € 500,000 hotel lobby transformation.

"The multi-million investment programme has already added significant value to the guest experience and 2019 saw the unveiling of a stunning refresh and expansion of the hotels iconic Atrium Lounge, along with the creation of an additional space, the Library, and the addition of 19 beautifully appointed bedrooms overlooking Trinity College and Westmoreland Street. The design of the new look lobby at The Westin was once again 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.

"With the brief defined, NODA set about to create a warm, inviting and bespoke design for the five star hotel lobby.  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 proudly displayed in The Print Room, which leads to The Banking Hall. A magnificent oil painting of the River Liffey and its surrounds, by Irish artist Paul Morrison, provides colour and texture to the overall space.


"Structurally, the space was opened up to provide guests with that sense of place from the moment they arrive to the Westin Dublin. Plush carpets, luxurious tiling with a palette of Crema Marfil stone, Nero Maquina marble, used throughout to create a traditional chequered floor pattern, subtle natural linen wall papers, with gold paper to the ceiling recesses, soft, luxurious fabrics with deep blue velvet upholstery together with the hand tufted carpets bring the new design to life. While in the evening bespoke light fixtures, give the Lobby a warm and welcoming ambiance.

"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. The bespoke design features foster calmness while also exuding a truly luxurious feel that complements the period aspects of the building.
