Fodor's Expert Review Malmaison Glasgow

278 W. George St., Glasgow, Glasgow City, G2 4LL, Scotland

Housed in a converted church, this modern boutique hotel prides itself on personal service and outstanding amenities like plasma televisions and high-end stereo systems. Echoing art deco in some aspects, the interior employs bold colors in playful prints and geometric shapes, balanced by traditional fabrics and furnishings. The lobby's splendid staircase has a wrought-iron balustrade illustrating Napoléon's exploits (the chain takes its name from an extravagant home decorated by Empress Josephine). The Chez Mal Brasserie offers some high-end dishes for sharing, including Yorkshire lamb and Chateaubriand, as well as a range of steaks and burgers. Sunday lunch is a good value.
