“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Friendly, welcoming service, lovely room, beautiful pool. It was also one of the only hotels I've ever stayed in where I wasn't woken by noises through the night, so I presume they got the soundproofing right! If you want to sample the rooftop bar though, make sure and ring ahead to book a seat! It's pricey but the cocktails are fab.

Really liked this hotel, nice and modern, right next to the water. Room was decent sized, great bathroom although the shower would flood the bathroom a bit. Bed was comfortable and room service was great. Staff needed to be a bit more knowledagble about tourist activities and things. I got poor information about the hop on-hop off bus which they should have known better. Overall nice hotel and I would stay here again.

Spent last night at The Marker and will definitely be back.
Came across the hotel on the web and booked to try a something new.
Unbelievably convenient to theatre (next door, 25m away) which was the reason for our visit (heartbeat of home) and Grafton St only 20mins brisk walk away.
The building, public spaces, bedrooms were all as you'd expect for a 5* hotel, but the level of service from all of the staff we encountered was exemplary.
Never before have we been asked would we like a towel and water on our return from a morning run!
We will be back.

Dear Mike M,

Thank you for taking the time to review The Marker Hotel on TripAdvisor.

You are correct on saying that we are ideally located beside the Bord Gais Theatre and not far from Grafton Street.

Checked in for one nights stay and to catch Micky Flanagan at the O2. Fabulous is the only way to describe it. Fantastic setting, staff were unobtrusive yet always on hand if required and extremely pleasant. Gorgeous superior king room and very tasty breakfast this morning. Can't find a fault. We will be back!

Went for birthday dinner. Had amazing saffron risotto. Just amazing. Lovely bottle of wine. Ordered desert and they had written happy birthday in chocolate on the side of the plate. Finished off with a G&T in the bar. Gorgeous building and stunning bedrooms and spa. Highly recommended

We usually stay at The Gresham for its central location but decided to try The Marker. Really nicely done out, super friendly service and nice room . A whole different experience to The Gresham and there really is no comparison. The location is great but not as central as it could be, but everything is only a short distance away. I would highly recommend the hotel , it would be even better if the prices were 10 to 15% cheaper!

Used The Marker for one night whilst on business in Dublin, situated in the smart Docklands area so a 10 minute cab ride from the hearty of the city.I was greated with fantastically hospitable doormen and reception staff and treasted to as slick a check in process as I have had. The Marker is beautifully designed with extremely mascualine contempory features such as the deep balck panelled lobby and corridors but with a glassy and light and open reception, bar reception space. I used the restaurant area for breakfast which was self service but of high quality.
Rooms are of good size I was on the top floor (6th) which had a fantastic if not somewhat dark walk in shower wet room. King sized beds extremely comfortable and a nice size working area with great views across the designer docks to the country way beyond..
