With all the bad news coming from hoteliers across Europe, a spot of light emanating out of Galway in Ireland makes for a nice Sunday read. Pillo Hotel Galway is but one of several classy 4 star affairs sitting under a very cool brand. Formerly a Marriott hotel, the rebranded Pillo Hotel & Spa is benefitted by substantial backing and an experienced hospitality crew.
Reading news from Hotel Management dot net this morning, I could not help but reflect on the way things used to be. A story by David Eisen there tells of an iconic Ireland hotel’s uncertain fate. John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara, John Ford, the legends of Ashford come back to memory as Ireland is beset with more bad news.
