The five-star Blythswood Hotel in Glasgow has launched a new £2,500-a-night penthouse suite which can be hired for events complete with its own ‘personalised butler and chef’.
Featuring ‘sleek lines, soft furnishings and a private roof garden’, as well as a massive sofa which can seat 20 people, the 1,850 sq. ft suite is being marketed for use by celebrities, VIPs, press junkets, as well as for cocktail parties and events.
Following a multi-million pound refurbishment, The Principal Blythswood Square Hotel took the wraps off the luxurious two-bedroom penthouse – which comes with its own private entrance and lift ensuring discretion for any high-profile guests – this week.
General Manager, Murray Thomson, said: “This penthouse has been months in the planning and the finished product is even more spectacular than I could have imagined. The property has been completely remodelled to make best use of the indoor and outdoor space resulting in a striking design that will be sure to impress any guest.
“There is a perfect balance between sleek lines and soft furnishings and the private roof garden looks out at the Glasgow skyline delivering one of the best views in the city. Now we are in a position to reveal the new look we can’t wait to welcome guests and let them experience the exceptional service that we are renowned for.”
The penthouse boasts an outdoor terrace that provides views across the city, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, bar and dining room. The master suite features a dressing room, full marble bathroom including bespoke steam room and sunken bath with integrated TV. Wireless speakers have been installed to ensure a sound system that flows to every room.
Designed by a team from Graven Images, the Principal Penthouse gives careful consideration to every aspect of the interior: the carefully curated selection of furniture has been sourced from iconic brands including B&B Italia, Tom Dixon and Moroso; an L-shaped sofa in the main lounge is the largest single piece of furniture Graven has specified, manufactured by Sancal to easily seat a party of 20; bespoke timber and marble furnishings combine with locally sourced fabrics; bookmatch timber panelling blends perfectly with marble mosaic flooring; and every piece of furnishing and artwork has been hand-picked to create a sophisticated, ‘contemporary abode with a Glasgow twist’.
Reservations for the penthouse are now being taken. Prices start at £2,500 per night. Event packages can be created on request including a personalised butler and chef.
The newly launched penthouse suite is designed to complement the existing 114 bedrooms and suites and 45 seat private screening room. Blysthswood Square Hotel also boasts a 10,000 sq. ft spa and fitness suite which has also recently undergone refurbishment. The hotel prides itself on using the finest ingredients from Scotland’s larder in its Glasgow restaurant and award-winning The Salon Lounge.
Blythswood Square has been a prestigious address since the early 19th century. Overlooking a private garden square, the hotel’s Georgian townhouses were originally home to wealthy merchants and were later turned into the club headquarters for The Royal Scottish Automobile Club.
