Yotel has set plans to open its second hotel in Scotland and fifth in the UK. 
 
The new Yotel Glasgow in Glasgow’s city center is slated to open in November 2019, bringing the brand’s guestroom count in the UK to 823.

As part of its European expansion, Yotel will convert the Westergate office building on Argyle Street next to Glasgow’s Central Station into the 256-room Yotel. Glasgow-based architects Mosaic Architecture + Design will design the project, which is expected to generate more than 100 new jobs for the local economy.

The Glasgow project follows the company's plans to open Scotland's first Yotel in Edinburgh. The 280-room city center hotel is scheduled to open in first-quarter 2019 on Queen Street at Erskine House. The property will be near the Waverley and Haymarket railway stations. 

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The hotel is in the development stages as part of the first use of a $250-million partnership between Yotel and Starwood Capital Group, which launched in September 2017.

Edinburgh-based Fletcher Joseph Architects and global interior designer Aedas are designing the hotel; ISG is constructing it.
 
The first city center Yotel is slated to open in late 2018 in the Clerkenwell district of London. The 212-room hotel follows the openings of two UK Yotels at London's Gatwick and Heathrow airports. Seven additional hotels are in the pipeline in Singapore, the U.S. and Dubai.
