Interstate Hotels & Resorts today announced that it has entered into a management agreement for The Marker, Dublin’s newest luxury hotel and apartment complex. Located in the heart of the city’s new business and cultural district at Grand Canal Dock, the 187-room hotel is anticipated to open in early 2013. The Marker Hotel is owned by Brehon Capital Partners, a real estate private equity firm, together with Midwest Holdings, its investment partner. It is the 27th managed or signed hotel agreement in Europe for Interstate Hotels & Resorts, and joins other Interstate-managed or signed world-class independent hotels and resorts such as Eilan Hotel Resort & Spa, Texas; J Hotel at Shanghai Tower, China; the Rajasthali Resort & Spa, India; Streamsong, Florida; and The Charles Hotel at Harvard Square, Massachusetts.
“Interstate is well-versed in the nuances of managing high end boutique hotels and destination resorts worldwide. We consider it a tremendous accomplishment and a testament to the results we’ve achieved to receive this vote of confidence with a new owner to manage what will ultimately set the standard of luxury hospitality in Ireland,” said Jim Abrahamson, Interstate’s chief executive officer.
