Modernist glass cube hotel with buzzy lounges and futuristic rooms in Scotland's coolest city
Housed within a modernist glass cube, citizenM Glasgow is a sleek and stylish hotel that celebrates classic European design and the latest 21st-century technology. A spiral staircase leads to the sprawling first-floor Living Room hub, where guests check in, eat, drink and relax. Bold red, black and white furnishings abound, with '50s chairs by Ray and Charles Eames and groovy Panton-designed classics from the '60s and '70s. Art books, iMacs and free WiFi let you work, play and be inspired, and large picture windows look out at Glasgow's skyline.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms are compact, at 150 square feet, but they're kitted out with cool furniture and gadgets by Dutch design agency Concrete. There’s a petite sink unit, and a separate rain shower is cocooned by frosted glass. The extra large kingsize beds (six feet by six feet) come with Frette linens and offer stretch-out room for couples — but sharing with a friend is tricky without an extra duvet. The Mood Pad lets you tinker with lights, temperature, TV and wake-up calls. Drop the electronic blinds and create an ambient lighting show.
The public spaces are large, sociable hubs full of iconic pieces by Vitra, Panton and Eames. Helpful "ambassadors" man the check-in and service areas, including a bar that serves cocktails and beers until 2 a.m. canteenM is a functional self-service food area with a wide choice of beverages, sandwiches, warm dishes, salads and sushi. At breakfast choose between continental (pastries, muesli, yogurt) and a full cooked Scottish breakfast of bacon, sausage, beans, tomatoes, potato scones and black pudding.
