“Other hotels must climb high to reach The Marker”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Recently opened, part of the "Leading Hotels of the World" chain, at the magnificent "New Dublin" neighbourhood of the docs, in front of the mirabilant Libeskind's Theatre. Really fantastic five-star hotel practicing promotional fares policy at the beginning of it's activity. Cuddles you from the beginning to the very end of your stay. The rooms are large pastel-coloured, modern, perfectly clean, right as the bathroom, climate control is simply faultless, the staff very friendly and helpful. Rooftop restaurant at open air offers you a breath-taking view of the port. Yes, it’s 1,3 km from O'Connell square, but you'll not wish to leave...

From the moment you enter the hotel you feel relaxed. The rooms are stylish, the rooftop bar is amazing, the pool is very nice. The staff is incredibly helpful. There just isn't anything I could think of that would make this hotel better.

We stayed at The Marker for 3 nights from 11-14 July 2014. We had taken advantage of an early booking rate and had noticed an offer on tripadvisor for an upgrade including breakfast. Although we were not able to avail of this offer we were offered an upgrade to a corner suite at an excellent rate which we took. We were checked in by a lovely Spanlsh girl who I remember was from Santander - she was so nice and smiley and brought us to our room - 135. Although the view was a bit disappointing (the offices beside and the play park), the room was still lovely - nice and spacious, exceptionally clean and well finished. Housekeeping staff in the hotel have exceptional standards and the room was perfectly presented every day on our return. As others have noted the turndown service is also lovely.

The only thing that needs improved is the TV size in the room - it is far too small for the size of the room - it needs to be a 37 or 40 inch tv at least.

We really enjoyed the rooftop bar also - you have great views of the city and staff are very helpful. The cocktail menu is quite short but staff will make you whatever you wish off the menu. The Maitre D (from Monaghan) was a good laugh and very pleasant. the heated seating area is great and we did not need any blankets but there were so many of them if you wanted one. it was no nice and relaxing on the rooftop.
The spa is wonderful - very clean and relaxing.
Checkout today was also great with Robert - very pleasant and helpful - Zoltan was also excellent ordering us a taxi and sorting luggage for us.
We will definately be back to this wonderful hotel.

Room Tip: Get a suite as it is definitely worth it!

Myself and my Fiance stayed in the hotel on Saturday night for his birthday .. what a fantastic experience it was. The Valet parking, the friendly staff and reception when we arrived couldnt do enough to help us it was first class treatment. When we got to are room we were greated with champange as a birthday token we really felt like VIPs. The room was fantastic looking out to the Bord Gais with full lenght windows we could sip on our champange and watch the world go by. We then went to the Roof top bar again greated with the friendliest of staff, unfortunatly it was cut short as the heavens opened up (typical Irish weather) but Gareth (head chef) came to our rescue and got us a table inside where we recieved amazing food. The next morning we got up for breakfast with a massive choice from fresh fruit to a big fry up the lay out was second to none. We then headed to the pool area which again was amazing the facilitys are just fantastic and the decor just tops it all off we felt like we were in another world..Even though the hotel was paked to the raffters on sat night we still felt like we were the only ones there the staff where so attentive. All in all it was a night we will never forget and a great treat we needed..Thanks to all the staff espically Gareth .. you are a legend.

We stayed at the hotel for the night as we were going to see Dirty Dancing. The staff are their best asset such warmth throughout the hotel.
The location is great about ten minutes walk to the city. The rooms are spectacular especially the bathrooms.

We were very impressed with the breakfast in the morning and the lovely Italian girl who served us.

We cannot wait to go back to try out the roof top bar

Good design and very service oriented staff. We really enjoyed staying in the Docklands away from the hustle and bustle of O'Connell St etc. Dublin central is fairly compact so it is easy to get everywhere. A lot of it is personal preference -- modern design vs traditional hotel and quieter area vs bustling. The room was very spacious as well with a wonderfully comfortable marble bathroom.

Dear Jdini,

Thank you for reviewing The Marker Hotel on TripAdvisor.

I agree with you that Dublin is a very compact city and easy to walk; town is only 15-20 minutes walk along the Liffey which I recommend especially while we are having this glorious weather in Dublin!.

Thank you again and I look forward to welcoming you back.

Kind regards
