We are delighted to have won “Business Hotel of the Year 2019” at the recent Georgina Campbell Awards!
Hosted in Bord Bia Dublin, the annual awards were attended by the very best in the Irish hospitality sector, with our very own Executive Head Chef Gareth Mullins and Director of Food & Beverage Sandra Murphy representing The Marker. Speaking of the awards, Georgina said “…what we have always looked for is not perfection but real food and hospitality with real heart, and we’re finding it more and more, in clusters of excellence all over the country.”
A huge honour for our team, the trusted Georgina Campbell awards are a celebration of excellence associated with the Georgina Campbell hospitality guides and Ireland’s longest-established independent hospitality and travel website www.ireland-guide.com.
On business tourism, Georgina said “While other guides are focused solely on the leisure market, we have always taken the needs of business guests into account when making our selections. Business tourism is a developing sector in the Irish tourism industry and we seek out business destinations offering not only outstanding amenities but also high levels of comfort and service - and good food.”
BUSINESS HOTEL OF THE YEAR 2019
Speaking about The Marker, Geogina said "Overlooking the Grand Canal Basin, this Manuel Aires Mateus designed building is Dublin city’s most striking modern hotel – and, despite having the attention-grabbing Bord Gais Energy Theatre as a neighbour, it holds its own as a landmark building. The location and outstanding amenities - including a fabulous rooftop bar, a Spa with 23-metre infinity pool and what may well be Dublin’s most appealing Presidential Suite - ensure its popularity as a leisure destination, but this luxurious hotel is also one of the capital’s most desirable places to do business. Dedicated staff and a wide range of conference and meeting spaces are among the attractions - all on the ground floor and boasting un-intrusive technology, most have natural daylight and some also have direct access to the adjacent Chimney Park which is an attractive option for breakout times. But perhaps the trump card is Head Chef Gareth Mullins, who has earned the hotel an enviable reputation for its food – and, while the food offering may sometimes seem like an afterthought in comparison with amenities and service, that can often be the clincher when deciding on a business venue."
