Grand opening as Sandman Hotel Group expands into Glasgow

Canada’s Sandman Hotel Group has opened its first hotel in Glasgow, the fourth property to join the Sandman Signature portfolio in the UK.

The new, multimillion-pound property in Glasgow’s Pegasus House building at the west side of the city centre – with 179 rooms set across ten floors – is said to be ‘ideally situated for both business and leisure travellers seeking a 4* hotel experience’.

Sandman Signature Glasgow Hotel promises to provide guests with a ‘fresh and modern’ experience. The hotel’s interior design is said to combine clean finishes with industrial-style elements to create a ‘chic urban oasis with a relaxing minimalist feel’. Guests have a choice of nine room-styles, including Penthouse suites, set across ten floors.

Attendees at last Friday’s grand opening night were treated to tours of the penthouse apartments, with truly stunning views across the city, and light show installations in the lower premium rooms, as well as food and drink from the hotel’s premium steakhouse, the Chop Grill & Bar.

Director of Sandman Hotel Group United Kingdom & Ireland, Mitch Gaglardi, said: “This particular hotel is especially close to my heart, as I spent a number of years living in Glasgow creating great memories with my wife and kids. From its incredible architecture to its vibrant cultural scene, Glasgow is hands down one of my favourite cities in Europe.

“Our first hotel in the city will offer guests a stylish and memorable experience, and in a prime location – just a stone’s throw from the leafy west end, Glasgow central and a short drive from the airport. We’re excited to add a further 179 bedrooms and suites to the city for people to come and enjoy its world-famous hospitality.”

The UK & Ireland arm of the Sandman Group already has 4* properties in Newcastle, where the business is headquartered, Aberdeen and London Gatwick, as well as Portmarnock Resort & Jameson Golf Links, just a short drive from Dublin Airport.

The family-owned company operates hotels across Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and Ireland.
