AccorHotels has announced the new ibis Styles Glasgow Centre West will open to guests in summer 2018.
The site is currently disused offices on Waterloo Street, Glasgow and will undergo a major redevelopment over the coming months.
The hotel, which will include 137 bedrooms and a restaurant and bar, has been signed under a franchise agreement with Maven Capital Partners and will be operated by Redefine|BDL Hotels.
This is the second property AccorHotels, Maven and RBH have partnered on in Glasgow, the first being ibis Styles Glasgow Centre George Square.
Cristina De Oliveira-Frewen, senior vice president, franchise hotels, UK & Ireland, AccorHotels, commented: “This will be a great new hotel in a prime site in the heart of Glasgow and marks another step in the growth of our brands in the UK.
“Accelerating the franchise growth of the ibis Styles brand is one of our strategic priorities and this is the kind of opportunity we’re looking to replicate in the right sites across the UK.”
Creativity and good humour are the hallmarks of the ibis Styles brand – aimed at those who are looking for the ‘best of the best’.
Each designer hotel has its own individual charm.
Paul Johnston, investment director of Maven, commented: “We are delighted to be once again partnering with AccorHotels and today’s announcement is further evidence of Maven’s growing property business.
“Glasgow is one of the strongest performing hotel markets and the ibis Styles brand is a perfect fit for the regeneration that Glasgow, a city famous for culture, music and sport, has undergone in recent years.”
