Glasgow, Scotland - 1 April 2021 - Virgin Hotels announces plans to open and operate a new hotel in Glasgow, Scotland. Expected to open in 2022, Virgin Hotels Glasgow will be the brand's second Scottish hotel to be signed and will be managed by Virgin Hotels.
The property will be located at 236-246 Clyde Street, which is in a prime City Centre position overlooking the River Clyde in the heart of Glasgow's shopping area, making it an ideal base to explore the city. The hotel will showcase panoramic river views and feature 242 Chambers and Grand Chamber Suites; meeting and event space; and multiple dining and drinking outlets, including the brand's signature culinary experience Commons Club, a restaurant, bar and modern social club and Funny Library Coffee Shop, a communal work space that will house an assortment of whimsical and funny books and games.
