Glasgow's latest luxury hotel - Grasshoppers Glasgow
was opened officially last month by Councillor Gordon Matheson,
leader, Glasgow City Council.
The 30 bed boutique hotel is located on the sixth floor of the
city's historic Caledonian Chambers building, overlooking Central
Station, built by celebrated Glasgow architect James Miller, the
visionary behind many of Glasgow's best loved buildings.
The derelict top floor of the building was painstakingly
refurbished and transformed into a £1.25 million boutique hotel, in
a joint venture with Network Rail.
The hotel's central location, sandwiched between Buchanan Street
and the IFSD, and its focus on service, style and value - rooms are
available from just £85 per night - have proved a winning formula
with business travellers and holidaymakers.
Grasshoppers has become a firm favourite on TripAdvisor,
overtaking leading international brands to become one of the top
rated hotels in Glasgow.
Councillor Matheson, said: "Glasgow has an outstanding range of
top-quality hotels, and I am delighted by the success of
Grasshoppers as one of the latest additions to this roster.
As the city becomes an ever more popular destination, our ability
to offer a range of hotels becomes very important, and a penthouse
hotel such as this plays a vital role."
