It may be small, but Glasgow’s latest luxury hotel – Grasshoppers Glasgow – is wowing guests with its stylish contemporary rooms, stunning views overlooking Glasgow, and eye catching displays of Scottish art, including photographs by former Buzzcocks drummer John Maher.
The new penthouse house hotel was officially opened this week by Councillor Gordon Matheson, leader of Glasgow City Council and Chair of Glasgow City Marketing Bureau.
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 International Financial Services District, and its focus on service, style and value – rooms are available from just £85 per night – are proving to be a winning formula with business travellers and holidaymakers.
