Quick stop in Cork!

This hotel was super fancy and absolutely wonderful. The lobby is beautiful and the network of hallways makes it an adventure to find you room or your way out. If you have a chance to wander around, definitely do! We booked the Imperial Hotel on the bus on the way to Cork because of its convenient location to the city center/bus station and the price, which was a great deal! Upon arriving we discovered the faucet in our room was running and couldn't be turned off, on our way out we let the front desk know that they might want to have it checked out and when we got back after sightseeing they have upgraded us to a suite so the plumber didn't disturb us! Overall, beautiful hotel, helpful staff, and definitely perfect for anyone who is looking for a romantic weekend getaway!

Wonderful customer service

The hotel itself was nice and I would rate average as far as appearance and rooms. The customer service however was beyond exceptional! The front desk staff were wonderful, Fiona even helped us by calling and keeping us posted on our bag status when one was lost by the rental car company.

Cork

Okay at best. Traveled from Dublin through Cork and on to Galway. Imperial was least favorite of the hotels along the way.

Conference setting had challenges

I was at Imperial for the International Academy of Nursing, 29-31 July. The signage for the event was poor-- and steps not friendly at all for people with handicaps. Meeting room had just chairs--- no conference tables. The opening event in the bar was poorly planned. Standing room for most. Hot, crowded, hard to get to the bar. Couldn't hear speakers. Obviously, the event staff and the hotel could have done better planning. Lighting in the room so dim, that reading was a challenge.

Very good

We got an early check in at no extra charge. The staff were friendly and efficient. The room was good and it would be difficult to improve on the location.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Not cheap, but the food at Jacques round the corner in Phoenix Street is superb (don't be put off by outside appearance!) Mon-Thurs and before 19:00 fri-Sat it does a 2-course menu at €26.00. A la carte is around twice that for 3 courses depending on what you choose. But if you're in the mood for a top class blow-out...
