Use Bookmark+.  You do not need to fiddle with the code of the bookmarks
themselves (e.g. the handler function).  It is the bookmark _jump_ command that
says whether to use the same or another window when moving to the bookmark

In Bookmark+:
C-x j d   is `bmkp-dired-jump
C-x 4 j d is `bmkp-dired-jump-other-window'

You apparently want to use `C-x j d'.

(You can of course bind it to another key.  By default, all Bookmark+ jump
commands are on prefix keys `C-x j' and `C-x 4 j'.)
