Blythswood Square

11 Blythswood Sq., Glasgow, Glasgow City, G2 4AD, Scotland

History and luxury come together at this smart conversion of the former headquarters of the Royal Automobile Club of Scotland, which occupies a classical building on peaceful Blythswood Square. The entrance is impressive, with marble floors and huge chandeliers; the red velvet alcoves and fringed lamp shades are witty references to the square's slightly risqué past. Room design is elegantly contemporary; the Spanish marble bathrooms make a dramatic contrast to the calming grays, whites, and deep reds of the Harris tweed furnishings. A basement spa offers serious pampering with its steam rooms, pools, sauna, and mud chamber. The ground-floor restaurant is modern and spacious, and the upstairs bar and lounge serves afternoon tea from noon to 5.
