The hotel refurb is set to include all 319 existing guestrooms, and an additional three guestrooms created from a redundant executive lounge on the 18th floor.
The project will also include a full refurbishment and extension to the executive lounge and enhancements to restrooms across the hotel, the leisure club will also be updated to match the wider design.
Function and pre-function areas are due for completion in December 2020 with the rest of the project to be rolled out in 2021, the transformation of the William Street hotel is being headed up by Dawn Campbell and Craig McKie owners of interior design company Bell and Swift.
The duo have previously worked with the Hilton team on a number of projects throughout their career including projects for its “Doubletree” and “Hampton by” brands, for their latest Hilton project the design concept is centred around Glasgow heritage, taking inspiration from the “Glasgow Style” made famous by designer and architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Luke Townsend, senior manager for project management at Hilton Glasgow, said: “This will be the largest renovation the hotel has undergone since its opening in 1992. Our vision for the project is to enhance our offering with a modern take on elegance and luxury, restoring the hotel to its position as market lead and premier function destination in Glasgow.
“We’re delighted to be working with Bell and Swift on the renovation, their local knowledge combined with their experience of large-scale hotel refurbishment projects have made them the perfect partner for this project.“
