Westin Becomes Westmoreland

The Westin, five-star hotel straddling three buildings on Westmoreland St in Dublin, will be rebranded as The Westmoreland from Tuesday, June 13. The city hotel will also become a member of the global Autograph Collection, its owners said.

The Westin opened in September 2001 at 35-39 Westmoreland St, incorporating a 19th century banking hall.

More recently, it has undergone a €10.5m investment, including a remodelling of its lobby, an expansion of its Atrium Lounge and the creation of a new library space, along with 19 new “heritage” bedrooms overlooking Trinity College and Westmoreland Street.

Lead-in B&B rates start from €510 per night in May, with the new heritage rooms, set in what was previously office space above an AIB branch that closed in 2021, starting from €670.

The hotel will also soon unveil a two-storey, 105.2 sqm College Suite, with a private balcony and personalised services from its check-in and concierge teams, with rates from €3,500 a night.

The 191-room Westin is owned and operated by the MHL Hotel Collection, which also includes the InterContinental and Morgan among several hotels in Dublin, as well as the Powerscourt Resort & Spa in Co Wicklow, Glenlo Abbey in Galway and The Limerick Strand Hotel.

MHL was formed by US billionaire John Malone, with partners Paul Higgins and John Lally. It acquired the hotel in 2013.
