You'll find the 138-room Morrison, one of the hippest hotels in Dublin, on the north bank of the River Liffey, just across the water from the all-singing, all-dancing Temple Bar. While some hotels would sit back and bask in the glory of their success, this is the kind of place that prefers to keep one step ahead of the crowd, which should also give you an idea of the kind of clientele it's after. So, it's out with the John Rocha–designed minimal interiors and in with a more eclectic decor, mixing antique pieces with funky lamps, colorful artwork, and sexy sunken tubs with leather head- and footrests. There are Apple Macs (admit it, they look better) in the recently upgraded rooms, and iPod docking stations available to all guests (if they're not in your room, reception will provide). The hotel's restaurant, Halo, has been given a similar makeover (and a new chef), with antiques and velvet seating taking off some of the sheen and adding a little warmth to what was previously an overly formal, modern space. Staff here are young but have clearly been put through their paces, providing polished, professional service. Down in the basement, serenity has ousted socializing—you can get all of that just over the Liffey—with the closure of Lobo nightclub. All told, the once novel newcomer is now a firmly paid-up member of Dublin's five-star fraternity.—Gail Harrington; updated by Pól Ó Conghaile
