Superb. For 5 star they know what they are doing. Turn down service is top. Service level purely from the greeting, assistance and the "hello's" provided made one feel special. Location is also very very good. Excellent size bathrooms and super shower

Stayed in The Marker for the first time in March 2014 - stunning room and great service. From the second you enter the hotel you know you are entering a different class of hotel.

We checked in around 12 noon and were shown to our room on the first floor. Every aspect of the hotel is done to a high specification, inlcuding the lobby, the hall way to the rooms and the resturants. The room itself was huge, even though it was 'Basic' by The Markers standards. The bathroom was stunning with the heated floors, bath, shower and large feel to it.

In short, I couldnt fault the hotel as it was flawless, and having a 5* hotel in Dublin for around €180 per night was excellent value in my opinion. Would stay there again without doubt.

Hotel is located in Canal Square which also houses a number of small cafes, a Spar etc and is an easy 15/20 minutes walk to Grafton Street. Plenty of staff across the hotel. I found the reception staff and breakfast servers the best during our stay. Unfortunately, the staff at the Roof Top Bar not so good as my husband had to wait at the table a good 10 mins before having to signal to someone he wanted to order a drink as no one had approached us for service. This happened again when we wanted to order a second round. In a 5 star hotel, you expect that the staff will anticipate what you want before you even ask for it. Did this ruin our stay? Absolutely not, was the only blip the entire stay so it was annoying as it would have been a flawless overnight stay from start to finish otherwise.

The room was beautiful. I loved the deep Cadbury purple carpet and the bathroom was a place that you could stay in all day. Floor to ceiling grey marble with separate full bath and a shower that would easily fit 4 people. Lovely quality shower gel, shampoo etc The bathrobes were extremely rough and I believe had been washed numerous times without fabric softener. No big deal though.

Breakfast was excellent, plenty of selection and unlike the Roof Top Bar, the staff couldn't service the table enough and always seemed to be close by if anything else was required. Breakfast service was the best we received during our stay.

The hotel is very stylish, very modern but I do think it could benefit from a little more personality in the bar area just beside reception. But this is just a personal note.

I found the location of the hotel very refreshing as it seemed to be an emerging hip new area to visit. I would definitely stay at The Marker Hotel again in the future.

Room Tip: Recommend a room with a view of the square.

Dear McAuley2007,

Thank you for posting a review of The Marker Hotel.

I am delighted to read that you like the design and the location of the hotel. We are in the process of enhancing the bar and terrace area. I am disappointed to read about the blip in service at the rooftop, however your feedback enables us to perfect also this area of the hotel.

We look forward to welcoming you back to The Marker Hotel in the near future!

We stayed here for 2 nights for our anniversary and it was a wonderful, luxurious stay. The check-in service was excellent, the staff were attentive and friendly. The room was lovely and the spa is fantastic. Can't recommend this hotel enough.

We only stayed here one night. We were seeing a show in the Bord Gais Theatre and this hotel is seconds from the venue.
The first thing we noticed was the number of staff. There are a lot of very friendly staff here. They all say hello as they pass and if you stand still for a second or two you'll be asked if you need anything.
Our room was beautiful and very clean. Lots of gadgets to play with, iPhone charging station and array of plug sockets. And very importantly for some people a 'real' 'full sized' hair dryer. The bathroom is great with a really good shower.
The breakfast next morning was a buffet but definitely one of the better ones we've had. Lots of local, Irish and artisan products were available and were displayed beautifully. Even the pat of butter on the table was from a small local producer as was the muesli, yoghurts etc.
The fire alarm went off twice while we were there. They were having an issue with it! Even that gave the staff a chance to show how friendly and organised they were.
All in all we will definitely stay here again. You're 20 minute walk from the heart of Dublin city but you feel like you're in European capital with all the new buildings around Grand Canal.
