UK’s first Radisson RED hotel opens in Glasgow
The new Radisson RED Glasgow has opened its doors. Radisson says the RED brand aims to ‘inject new life into hospitality through a focus on informal services, the latest technology, and bold design’.
The 174-room Radisson RED Glasgow is the first new-build Radisson RED property to open in Europe and is located next to the Scottish Event Campus (SEC).
Responsible for all operations at the hotel, curator Michael Weston commented: “We’re all so excited to open and introduce RED to Glasgow and the wider UK. The RED experience is different - we encourage laughter, playfulness and even a little mischief with guests, and we use our spaces as a showcase for some of the best local talent in art, design, music and fashion. We really hope people come to the hotel, love what they see, and come back again and again.”
The hotel’s rooftop bar, RED Sky Bar, offers panoramic views of the city while the downstairs games rooms make for a quirky event space.
Richard Moore, area senior vice president, UK, Ireland & Western Europe, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Radisson RED is bold and pushes the boundaries of the traditional hospitality experience, and I can’t think of a better fit for the UK’s first RED than the city of Glasgow. We’re genuinely excited to give people the opportunity to enjoy RED, and I feel confident that as well as having a fantastic product in a great location, we have the best team in place to deliver a memorable and RED experience for guests.”
