Hilton Worldwide announced the debut of the Hampton by Hilton hotel in Glasgow's city center this summer. The property joins the European portfolio of Hilton Worldwide's global brand of over 1,900 mid-priced hotels.
Under a franchise agreement with SCOT Sheridan and Curo West Campbell LLP, $18 million has been invested in the redevelopment of a former office block on West Campbell Street, near Glasgow Central Rail Station. The building will undergo an extensive renovation, converting the structure into an 88-guestroom hotel with additional features including a 24 hour fitness center.
SCOT Sheridan appointed Zeal Projects Limited to manage the design and construction of the first Hampton by Hilton in Scotland.
Hampton by Hilton Glasgow Central will offer the brand's signature services. These include free Internet access, daily breakfast and a round-the-clock snack bar. Guestrooms will be equipped with the Clean and Fresh Hampton Bed, contemporary bathrooms, 32-inch TVs and safes.
As a destination, Glasgow benefits from a strong mix of business and leisure visitors, enjoying a position as one of the UK's foremost conferencing and retail venues. The city is home to the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, along with a range of sports stadiums and the recently opened Hydro Arena. In 2014, Scotland will host both the Ryder Cup and Commonwealth Games.
