Yotel heads for Glasgow

A prime city-centre site in Glasgow is to become a Yotel next year. It will be the brand’s second hotel in Scotland and fifth in the UK and will be on Argyle Street opposite Glasgow's Central Station.

The 256-room hotel, which is taking over the former Westergate building, will also feature Glasgow's first destination rooftop bar, complete with bowling alley.

Yotel CEO Hubert Viriot said: "Glasgow is a forward-looking city that has real vibrancy and energy, bolstered by careful planning and investment initiatives. The city is building on its excellent infrastructure and is shaping up to be a world-class business destination.

”These were all important characteristics that helped us to choose Glasgow as our next UK location and we're excited to be part of the positive momentum that is driving growth in the city."

Tim Abram, vice-president at Starwood Capital Group, an investor in Yotel, said: "Following the announcement of Yotel Edinburgh in 2017, this is an exciting next step in our strategic partnership.

“Glasgow continues to go from strength to strength with significant new investment planned for the years to come, and we believe Yotel will bring something new and unique to Glasgow's well-established hotel market."
