An elegant piazza is emerging at the back of St. Anne's Cathedral, and this hotel is sitting pretty at one corner. Inside, light reflects around the reception's dominant white space, with subtle colours and specially-commissioned local artwork adding a cool, design hue. The stylish SQ Bar and Grill, and Hub Bar and Lounge, take centre stage on the ground floor, along with three meeting rooms (each named after an Irish writer). Bedrooms have clean wooden floors, wet-room style bathrooms, plasma TVs and, apart from four executive rooms, are all the same size. Ask for a room on one of the upper floors for good views across the city. Wifi is free in public areas and charged in-room. Call for parking arrangements.
