Glasgow is one of the UK’s most vibrant and exciting cities to do business in, and with a wide selection of hotels dotted in and around this cosmopolitan location, you’ll be spoilt for choice when you book a stay here. As the cultural capital of Scotland, and with exceptional architecture visible all around the city, Glasgow attracts thousands of business visitors every single year.
So whether you’re flying in for a weekend conference, or spending a few months here working from a serviced office, you’re guaranteed to find exactly what you need.
When you’re planning a trip on a shoestring, your best options for accommodation are budget hotels. They are cheap, good quality, have excellent room availability, and tend to be in some of the best city locations.
The three main budget chain hotels in Glasgow are The Ibis, Travelodge and Premier Inn. All three offer clean, chic, modern rooms with basic amenities, breakfast options and a good choice of location. The Ibis has two locations in Glasgow, one of which is situated close to the train station, which is a good choice if that’s how you’re travelling into the city. Travelodge has six locations in Glasgow with one being central – excellent if you want to be near everything – and another being at the airport – useful if you need a stopover between flights. Premier Inn has by far the best selection of locations with no less than 21 hotels in Glasgow.
If you’re in the mood for a stay with a bit of personality, or a sleek boutique hotel that stands out from the rest, Glasgow has some really fabulous options for you to choose from.
The Cathedral House Hotel is a truly lovely example of a simple, classic and comfortable hotel done really well. With a pretty incredible external image, it has real turrets, and a selection of rooms that have gorgeous polished wooden floors and layouts that are both delicate and classic in design, this is a true getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, despite the fact it’s only five minutes away from one of the busiest parts of the city – the Merchant City area.
For a Feng Shui feel and some pretty off the wall furniture, book yourself into citizenM and enjoy staying in what is probably Glasgow’s trendiest hotel. And for real simplicity, relaxation and comfort, book into The Grasshopper Hotel where less actually is more, and the room layout and design evokes a real sense of calm.
When 5* is an option for your business trip, you’ve got a pretty fine selection of luxury hotels to choose from in Glasgow.
For modern luxury opt for The Radisson Blu, Carlton George Hotel, Blythswood Square or Hotel Du Vin – luxury chain hotels that offer high spec modern rooms, exceptional customer service and a good selection of room and suite choices depending on your budget. For classic luxury you’ll want to consider hotels such as; Cameron House Hotel or Mar Hall where the decor is a little less contemporary and a little more traditional and opulent.
