but the first time I walked into the lobby of the G Hotel along Roxas Boulevard in Manila I fell in love with it.
There was something about its black and white chic that made it unlike any other hotel lobby in Manila.
It was small and the sofa looks so comfy that it made one immediately feel at home.
The contemporary design, by renowned Filipino architect Gerry Contreras, reminded me of another hip and excellent hotel I stayed in Hong Kong, the Le Meridien Cyberport.
I really have nothing against grand hotel lobbies with lavish-looking chandeliers and ornate chairs. However, they make me feel old and moneyed and am not 😛
As the newest hotel in Manila, G Hotel is all of seven storeys, with fifty rooms each having its personalized butler. Had an ocular and I can only wish the modern contempo theme of the lobby was carried to the rooms..it was not. They had a nice view of Baywalk and Manila Bay though.
Facilities include a ballroom, a pool bar and a coffeeshop at the ground floor which presently offers an eat for two one is free breakfast promo, at P550 per person. The food was good if only because they serve my favorite Norwegian salmon.
Having said all this, I wonder what G means, or if it means anything at all 😛
G Hotel rooms start at $120 for tourists.
It is located at 2090 Roxas Boulevard, Malate, Manila (beside Aloha Hotel)
