‘New Year - New Morrison’
With a “New Year, New You” attitude, The Morrison Dublin, Curio Collection by Hilton, has completed a two-year refurbishment and re-branded as “Curio Collection by Hilton” and is also Dublin’s most recent five-star hotel.
In a carefully managed multi-million euro project, the hotel underwent a complete overhaul, staying open throughout, and barely noticed by guests. From the lobby and reception area through to the Halo Restaurant and up through all 145 hotel bedrooms and public areas, there are new floors, furniture, décor, panelling and lighting throughout. New artwork, a muted palette and pops of colour now create a feeling of quiet luxury, with an edge. The bedrooms were last to be finished and are almost unrecognisable, completely redecorated and boasting new bathrooms, but retaining their song lyric murals.
The Morrison was the first hotel in Ireland to join the Curio Collection by Hilton, in acknowledgement of its unique character and style. This rebrand has now been enhanced by an extensive refurbishment throughout the reception areas and rooms with a strong emphasis on the hotel’s artistic vibe and rock ’n roll character.
Under new ownership since 2021, a recent investment of €5 million has transformed the guest experience, guided by the award-winning interiors expertise of NODA (Nikki O’Donnell Architects), with art curated by Art Loves.
At the helm is Hotel Director Patrick Joyce, who leads a team that have been with The Morrison for many years. Patrick said: “We are very excited about this next chapter for The Morrison Dublin. It’s been a lot of work, but we feel that the hotel has never looked better, and we’re just as proud of the level of hospitality we offer.”
