    The Principal Blythswood Square Hotel, The Principal Grand Central Hotel or Dakota Deluxe Glasgow Hotel

    Glasgow, Scotland

    The Principal Blythswood Square Hotel, Glasgow
    Glasgow’s Blythswood Square has been a prestigious address since the early 19th century. Overlooking a private garden square, the square’s Georgian townhouses were originally home to wealthy merchants; later, they were turned into the club headquarters for The Royal Scottish Automobile Club, and ultimately became The Principal Blythswood Square Hotel – one of Glasgow’s best-established and most luxurious hotels, and the only one with an AA five-star accreditation. Widely acclaimed for its exceptional service, and winner of Hotel Manager of the Year at the 2017 Scottish Hotel Awards, The Principal Blythswood Square Hotel is being spruced up for the 21st century, with a multi-million pound refurbishment that will refresh all of the existing guest rooms and suites with an elegant, new look; create new suites and guest rooms; and upgrade the Spa reception area and lounge. The hotel also includes a grand-floor restaurant and first-floor bar (the Salon); both overlook the Square and will also be refurbished over the course of 2018.


    The Principal Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow

    Directly adjoining Glasgow’s Central Station, The Principal Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow was originally built in the late 19th-century as a great British railway hotel. One of the city's most prestigious buildings, the hotel has welcomed many famous guests throughout the years, ranging from Frank Sinatra to Sir Winston Churchill. Today, this iconic hotel is still a very much-loved landmark in Glasgow's skyline, set within the hub of the Style Mile and at the center of the city's many attractions. Charming and cosy, guest rooms are thoughtfully furnished to create a relaxing environment to return to after a busy day in Glasgow. The hotel’s restaurant, Tempus Restaurant & Bar, specializes in seasonal, locally sourced food and drink that showcases the very best of Scottish cuisine and culture. And the recently refurbished, marble-floored bar, Champagne Central, overlooks Central Station and evokes the golden age of travel.

    Dakota Deluxe Glasgow Hotel
    This stylish boutique hotel was created from a monumental works and pension building in the city center, occupying a quiet corner near the Buchanan Street shopping district, a 15-minute walk from George Square, with clubs, pubs, and restaurants nearby. The tall windows are reminiscent of New York City lofts... there's a restaurant for fine dining... and a bar that serves hors d'oeuvres in an atmosphere of relaxed sophistication.
