Time Out says

A smart urban retreat with a controversial façade in the newly trendy business quarter

Don’t let its location on Misery Hill fool you. Dublin’s Docklands have transformed, and the Marker Hotel offers an ultra-modern luxury stay in spitting distance of downtown attractions. The lobby resto-bar and sprawling spa (23-metre infinity pool and fully-equipped fitness centre included) generate buzz, but it’s the bold checkerboard exterior that dominates conversation. Love it or hate it, the distinctive façade sets the tone for the six-story, 187-room property. Spacious bedrooms are outfitted in royal tones and marble bathrooms are teeming with upmarket Malin+Goetz products. There are no balconies but guests in waterfront rooms wake up to Grand Canal views. One thing’s for sure: you won’t confuse the Marker for a chain hotel.

Time Out tip: Take advantage of free add-ons, like rides on the hotel’s retro cruiser bikes. While not ideal for city centre, they make for a fun ride through the neighbourhood.
