Today, the Daily Record is reporting that the hotel was sold by AlixPartners to "an unnamed high net worth investor" for an undisclosed sum.

“We received interest from in excess of 150 parties in the Crowne Plaza from a variety of buyers that were eager to purchase a hotel asset in one of the strongest performing hotel market in Europe,” Kerr Young, director of JLL Hotels and Hospitality Group, told the paper. “The price achieved for the hotel reflects a benchmark yield for a regional hotel asset to be sold as a going concern.”

The sale was subject to a franchise agreement with IHG.
