The elegant and luxurious Blythswood Square hotel, housed in a grand Georgian building, overlooks its namesake square. While interiors are glitzy and modern, plenty of the building's original character and historical features have been retained. Rooms are sleek and contemporary, and while some are small and dark, all have attractive marble bathrooms and free Wi-Fi. The large spa with an impressive thermal suite and the chic cocktail bar add to the Blythswood's sophisticated ambiance. The vibe is chic but relaxed and unstuffy, which attracts couples looking for a little glitz and plenty of Glaswegians, who come for the hotel's popular cocktail bar and restaurant.
An upscale, artsy boutique hotel, the Indigo is located within a short walk of Glasgow's buzzing city center. A blend of Victorian architectural details and contemporary furnishings, this property manages to be elegant without being stodgy. Rooms are chic and attractive and come with great amenities, including free minibars. However, traffic noise can be an issue on lower levels and the bathrooms run small. The hotel's restaurant, Marco Pierre White, serves an excellent breakfast and reputedly one of the best steaks in Glasgow. It's open all day and well into the evening.
The Carlton George Hotel is an upscale, 64-room property set on a busy road right in the center of Glasgow. Stand-out features include its excellent rooftop restaurant (the only one in the city) and not only minibars but a choice of crystal decanted spirits are free of charge in every room; some rooms also have balconies with great city views. Faux, manor house interiors or the busy design with bright colors might not appeal to everyone and the lack of fitness facilities may be a let down, though for a super-central location and free booze, this property offers great value.
