From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Sometimes a hotel tells the story of a city's evolution better than any palace or public monument. This is surely the case with The G, a surprise for this increasingly arty port town, whose lodgings are given to candlewick bed-spreads and pastel color schemes. The G's glamour is completely local: Mad milliner Philip Treacy, a hometown boy, designed this 101-room stunner. The hotel overlooks a busy access road, but the noise is forgotten once you enter the ground floor's funky public rooms: The taupe-colored Grand Salon features a mass of glass Tom Dixon lamps hung from the ceiling; the bubblegum-colored Pink Salon has a swirly psychedelic carpet. The G isn't just eye candy, though: The rooms are wonderfully comfortable, butlers tend to your every need, and the extensive room service menu is from its excellent Italian-Irish restaurant. The ESPA spa is one of Ireland's best, and central Galway is a 15-minute walk away. —2006 Hot List
