Fodor's Expert Review Malmaison

44 Whitehall Crescent, Dundee, Dundee City, DD1 4AY, Scotland

British brand Malmaison has brought life and a dash of panache to a dilapidated but much-loved Dundee landmark near the new waterfront. The rooms are rich toned, veering on dark, yet pristine and fragrant, with firm beds, soft bedding, and lush throws. The glamorous first-floor restaurant and bar, staffed by friendly if slightly scurrying staff, make this a popular bet for a one-night city-center splurge. Be sure to hold your jaw shut as you climb up the stunning elliptical spiral staircase, where the light of the cupola shines like a twinkling eye.
