Think my third/fourth ?time stay was to be a fourth/fifth but as my plans always change did not make fourth/fifth to rush "home" to China on business -am Irish -live abroad so always nice to come home and to Dublin on route to my family home in Sligo 2/3 times per year meet my sister and family etc -used to stay in the U2 place down the river which used to be fab -but then went down(after 2 bad stays enough! as I pay myself !!) -not sure now ??-then Merrion -very nice great location superb service -particularly concierge and door men but a little worn in places and they did send me to an occupied room last time !-as I am travelling normally in Europe for at least a week usually from China have valuables and luggage so security important.
Found the Marker from reviews -really nice modern Hotel -location so so -like a developing area in China so will be better in 2/3 years -still walking distance to O Connel Bridge but still really nice particularly in summer ,Hotel rooms superb-Dental Kit on request only though in a 5 Star Hotel??-but this is Europe !1 ,staff great -finally got to visit the rooftop bar and entertain my sister ( last few times closed as winter or off period) -great place although chilly for me even in August coming from 35c China heat-Dublin 12C?? Overall a great Hotel -pool is superb ( visited last time ) really everyone helpful -just a great hassle proof place to stay after a 19 hour journey -definitely recommend and I am difficult (Manage one of the best Hotels in Asia) but very down to earth as all Irish people are -would say if you like Luxury and modern choose here , like Luxury and traditional choose the Merrion -for people who like a traditional Irish Breakfast -I was underwhelmed by Merrion( three times there) -did not try The Marker yet -as had no time!-best breakfast I have had in Dublin in terms of Traditional Irish at Hotels in my opinion was at Gresham food authentic although service so so but worth a try. Anyhow hope this review is helpful
