A new £11.2m Ibis Styles Glasgow Centre West hotel has opened its doors to the public this week.
Glasgow’s Lord Provost, Eva Bolander, joined the hotel team on 29 August at the property to cut the ribbon and declare the hotel officially open.
Managed by the independent UK hotel management company, RBH, the 40,000 sq ft former office block has been transformed thanks to a multi-million pound investment led by UK-based private equity and property manager Maven Capital Partners.
The 137-bed hotel, which sits on the corner of Waterloo Street and Douglas Street, has been designed to pay tribute to Glasgow’s – and Scotland’s – musical connections and history.
According to the group the décor features nods to the musical greats who have “graced Glasgow’s stages”, whilst maintaining a modern finish that is “synonymous with the city’s effortless style”.
Helder Pereira, CEO of RBH, said: “It’s wonderful to see Ibis Styles Glasgow Centre West open its doors to the public. It will now sit alongside Ibis Styles Glasgow Centre George Square in our growing portfolio.
“This opening also represents our third management agreement with an AccorHotels brand as well as our third opening in partnership with Maven, and we’re thrilled to be working alongside both partners again. We’re confident our expertise will ensure guests have the best possible experience when visiting Glasgow.”
Ramsay Duff, investment director at Maven, who led the investment, said: “Ibis Styles has been a very successful brand for Maven in Glasgow and we aim to emulate the performance of our existing hotel, Ibis Styles Glasgow Centre George Square, which enjoys high occupancy rates and is consistently ranked amongst the best hotels in the city on TripAdvisor.”
