Five Star Glasgow hotels

Once a center of the Enlightenment, then an industrial powerhouse, and now a dynamic city of culture and art, Glasgow has an endless capacity to reinvent itself. Superb galleries, venerable museums, and jaw-dropping architecture have helped to turn Scotland's largest city into its premier destination. That success has been assured by its stylish world-class restaurants, luxury shopping (second only to London), and its thriving art and music scene. Glasgow today is a city rooted in its glorious past, but with its eye fixed firmly on the future.

Things to see in Glasgow

From its splendid Georgian mansions and fabulous Victorian museums, to its medieval churches and grand sandstone tenements, Glasgow is a city built to impress. That continues today, especially along the River Clyde, where striking modern museums—such as the Glasgow Science Centre—have brought the city firmly into the 21st century. The famed Art Nouveau architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, can perhaps be thanked for the city's most elegant architecture. Take tea at the Mackintosh-designed Willow Tearooms and you'll be enjoying Glasgow at its most refined. Shopping can be pretty upscale here as well, especially in the Merchant City—the city's ancient heart. Top fashion boutiques, designer brand stores, and first-class restaurants are looked over by the city's gloriously Gothic 15th-century Cathedral. The city's Victorian museums are similarly spectacular, with the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum noted for its imaginative displays, Impressionist paintings, and a world-renowned Salvador Dali painting.

5-star hotels in Glasgow

For a city once known for its working-class solidarity, Glasgow today is a city at ease with luxury living. You'll find that the 5-star hotels in Glasgow are modern in outlook, while drawing deeply on the city's history and culture. Enjoy fabulously fresh Scottish seafood at hotel restaurants, or sample fine Scotch whiskies by the fireside on a chilly evening. Some luxury hotels in Glasgow are housed in elegant city-center apartments, others in bold new builds that showcase Glasgow's modern side. Either way, five-star hotels in Glasgow will guarantee you superb service and the warmest of Glaswegian smiles.

Where to stay in Glasgow

Five-star hotels in Glasgow are scattered across a number of the city's luxury districts, with most to the north of the River Clyde. There are wonderful 5-star hotels in Glasgow's elegant grid of streets, stretching west of George Square. This area, especially around Buchanan Street, is known as the city's premier shopping and theater district. Closer to the River Clyde, along Argyle Street, you may find five-star hotels in Glasgow's rejuvenated Clyde-side area. From here it's easy to reach the city's newest museums, and its mammoth exhibition center, which lie just across the river.

How to get to Glasgow

Glasgow is well-served by its airport, Glasgow International Airport, which lies just 8 miles outside the city. Several international airlines offer direct flights here, although many require a changeover at London. There is a fast bus service from the airport into the city center, but many 5-star hotels in Glasgow will be happy to arrange a chauffeured shuttle service for you. The central districts of the city are compact and great to walk around. For traveling quickly to the more far-flung locations, the subway system is a safe, regular, and fast option. Alternatively, look out for a London-style black cab—these can be easily hailed from the street.
