Upon my arrival, I was greeted warmly by the staff who all remembered me, and even asked after the Punk Glam Princess wondering why she wasn't with me this time as well. Well blow me over! I've stayed at various hotels many times over and never been greeted as genuinely warmly as this!
I was led to my room, number 218 by the gracious staff who explained to me that this part of the hotel wasn't even open on my last visit. Since it was just myself this time I opted for the "wee classic" room, and although this is considered their most economical room, I found it to be quite luxurious with the giant king sized four poster bed fit for this Punk Glam Queen! (And yes, wee pixie sized me can take up that whole bed -- I'm quite a restless sleeper that has the poor Punk Glam King clinging to the edge of the bed every night! Sorry honey, you know its just that I want to be closer to you! Heehee!)
Our last visit I forgot to take a picture of the lovely sink faucet. Look at how the water cascades out... I want one!
Some quiet nooks off the main lobby.
Blythswood Square, just across the street from the hotel, now in full bloom.
After staying at Blythswood Square Hotel this second time, I can honestly say this hotel will remain one of my all-time favourites, and it lives up to its 5 Star rating. Everything about it, from the gorgeous facade, motoring memorabilia, modern decor with a twist, food, little touches like robes and slippers, and superb staff and service will make this my hotel of choice every visit to Glasgow! At some future point, I do plan to return to Glasgow with my whole family, and visit Edinburgh as well. I wouldn't hesitate book one of the hotel groups offerings there due to my marvelous experience at Blythswood Square.
If you're interested in booking a room, please do refer directly to their website where you will find the best rates and specials anywhere on the Internet.
A special thank you to the staff of Blythswood Square Hotel and Spa for making my solo visit to Glasgow so special. You'll be seeing me and hopefully my family too again! (Soon I hope!)
