Radisson RED Glasgow has opened in the city’s West End following a £30 million investment by Glasgow company Forrest Hotels Ltd. The 174-room property is one of the first new-build Radisson RED properties to open in Europe.
Radisson RED Glasgow is Forrest Group’s first foray into the hotel business and while ownership will remain in the hands of Forrest Hotels, RED Glasgow will be run and managed by Radisson.
Located in the heart of the city’s music and art scene, RED Glasgow is only minutes away from some of the best music venues in Scotland, including SSE Hydro. From keyless entry to self-check-in and check-out, technology features heavily throughout the hotel. Managed through the RED app, guests can do everything from requesting extra pillows to arranging group transport to the airport. They can even chat with other guests.
Michael Weston, Curator, Radisson RED, commented: “The RED experience is different - we encourage laughter, playfulness and even a little mischief with guests, and we use our spaces as a showcase for some of the best local talent in art, design, music and fashion. We really hope people come to the hotel, love what they see, and come back again and again.”
Opening in early May, Radisson RED Glasgow is the brand’s fifth hotel to open worldwide, joining RED hotels in Brussels, Campinas, Cape Town, and Minneapolis. In Glasgow, Radisson Hotel Group’s portfolio has increased to three, with both the Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson properties located in the city center.
Richard Moore, Area Senior Vice President, UK, Ireland & Western Europe, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Radisson RED is bold and pushes the boundaries of the traditional hospitality experience, and I can’t think of a better fit for the UK’s first RED than the city of Glasgow.“
