Radisson Red Glasgow welcomes first guests to Scottish hotspot

Radisson Red Glasgow has opened its doors in Scotland’s largest city, ready to shake up the UK’s hotel scene.

Radisson Red is Radisson Hotel Group’s upscale, select service hotel brand that aims to inject new life into hospitality through a focus on informal services, the latest technology, and bold design.

The 174-room Radisson Red Glasgow is also the first new-build Radisson Red property to open in Europe.

Located in the heart of the city’s music and art scene, Red Glasgow provides travellers with an ideal base from which to explore the city and is only minutes away from some of the best music venues in Scotland, including the world-renowned 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 a group ride to airport.

They can even chat to other guests and find out where the best gigs are in town that night.

Responsible for all operations at the hotel, curator Michael Weston commented: “We’re all so excited to open and introduce Red to Glasgow and the wider UK.

“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.”

Radisson Red Glasgow is the brand’s fifth hotel to open around the world, joining Red hotels in Brussels, Campinas, Cape Town, and Minneapolis.

For anyone looking to watch the sunset over the River Clyde, the hotel’s stunning new Red Sky Bar, Glasgow’s first rooftop bar, will be the place to be.

Glasgow, famed for its cutting-edge music, fashion and arts scene, is one of the UK’s hottest city-break destinations, with over two million tourists now visiting the city on an annual basis. 

Venues like the Hydro and SECC make Glasgow one of the biggest event and conference destinations in Europe. 

The international airport, and strong rail and road transport links, provide easy access to Glasgow and surrounding areas for business and leisure guests alike.
