Hotel steps into Limelight


GLASGOW’s newest hotel opened its doors last week – in the building once home to the city’s first power station.

Hotel Indigo on Waterloo Street, a franchised brand of InterContinental Hotels Group, will be run by Maurice Taylor’s Chardon Management firm.
The 95-bedroom hotel, located in the building which once provided the power for Glasgow’s old tram cars, includes Limelight Bar and Grill.
Hotel Indigo will be run by Denis MacCann, who previously headed up the Holiday Inn Theatreland for Chardon Management. Mark Platt has now taken the reins at the Holiday Inn.
Maurice Taylor said: “The heart of the city’s financial district is the perfect location to open Hotel Indigo, which will particularly appeal to business travellers; its proximity to the city’s great shopping and vibrant theatre scene will undoubtedly attract leisure guests.”
