The Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel is unquestionably the nicest hotel in Scotland’s largest city. This stately hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to Glasgow’s train station and central business and shopping districts, but it’s quiet hilltop setting is one of the most charming neighborhoods of Glasgow.
As is the case with most European Kimpton properties, the Blythswood Square Hotel is a design lover’s dream, with inspired interiors breathing new life into a historic property. The lobby features bold black and white finishes, a mix of modern and traditional art, and plush velvet upholstery, while the guest rooms combine cozy woolen linens with sleek Italian lighting. Luxurious bathrooms with soaking tubs are the perfect way to warm up after coming in from a day walking around chilly, rainy Glasgow.
Just off the lobby is Bo & Birdy, the hotel’s bar and restaurant that you will likely recognize from HBO’s Succession. As fabulous as any bar in London, it’s understandable why the creators chose this gorgeous space for a rendez vous between Shiv and Rhea.
An experience at Blythswood Square’s expansive spa is also a must. Whether it’s for a cocktail hour, a weekend stay, or a spa day (or all three) we were thoroughly charmed by the Blythswood Square hotel and can’t wait to return on our next trip to Scotland. The professional but unfussy service is characteristic of everything we love about Scotland and its kind, no-nonsense people. Thank you to the Kimpton Blythswood Square for your hospitality.
