Blythswood Square Hotel
In the past, this exceptional building was home to the headquarters of the Royal Scottish Automobile Club, giving the space a rich history.

With just 100 rooms and suites, each guests gets to enjoy personalised attention, but there are still all of the amenities you might expect from a luxury hotel, such as onsite restaurant, a bar and even a film screening theatre.

Believe it or not, this boutique hotel was once an Episcopal Church, which lends culture and heritage to the beautiful space. It may have once been a church, but Malmaison is anything but austere. The crowd tends to be young and hip, and each of the rooms are lush and contemporary. Dine at the onsite brasserie for fusion fare or head to the Malbar for an upbeat vibe and wild cocktails that sets the tone for a night of excitement.
