Latest Luxury Hotel Soaring High

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."

The newly refurbished Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow's IFSD has opened Deli Central signalling the completion of the iconic city centre venue.

Following a £20 million investment from hotel and conference operator Principal Hayley, the Grand Central Hotel has been given a new lease of life and has 21 flexible function spaces, 186 guest bedrooms, Champagne Central, Tempus restaurant and Deli Central.

Since opening, the Grand Central has picked up numerous awards including Glasgow Hotel of the Year, Meeting Space of the Year and has recently picked up a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor. The hotel is currently offering extremely competitive rates for meeting rooms from £29 per person day delegate and from £100 room hire. Meeting rooms are also now available to hire per hour.

Deli Central opens from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday for guests and members of the public. With a dedicated entrance on Hope Street, diners can sit in or take away with a great range of light bites on the menu including sandwiches, baguettes, paninis and salads which are freshly prepared on the premises and offer great value for money.
