Glasgow Business Awards 2012
Blythswood Square has won the Best Inward Investment category at the 2012 Glasgow Business Awards...
The Award, organised by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, recognises the business that has invested in Glasgow in the past three years and has made a significant contribution to the local economy.
The five star luxury hotel, part of The Town House Collection, first opened its doors in the city in 2009 and since that time has welcomed guests from all over the world and hosted VIPs including organisers and stars of the Mobo music awards and The Scottish Fashion Awards.
Blythswood Square's own stylish cocktail bar, The Salon, has served more than 125,000 cocktails since it opened making it one of the most popular destinations for locals too.
In an era when the environment and sustainability have become fundamental to any hotel build, the rescuing and recycling of one of Scotland's landmark buildings into one of the UK's top hotels which has brought tourism, corporate business and glamour to its city location have all combined to make Blythswood Square the 'Best Performing Inward Investor.'
The award was collected by Managing Director Hans Rissmann, he said: 'To win this award three years after opening is fantastic for us. It proves how quickly the hotel has become established for locals and visitors to the city alike. Since the day we first opened our doors we have been welcomed to Glasgow by our neighbours, the industry and customers alike. We are thrilled that Blythswood Square is making such a contribution to the local economy.'
