Expected to open in 2022, Virgin Hotels Glasgow will be the brand's second Scottish hotel to be signed and will be managed by Virgin Hotels.

The property will be located at 236-246 Clyde Street, which is in a prime City Centre position overlooking the River Clyde in the heart of Glasgow's shopping area, making it an ideal base to explore the city.

The hotel will showcase panoramic river views and feature 242 Chambers and Grand Chamber Suites; meeting and event space; and multiple dining and drinking outlets, including the brand's signature culinary experience Commons Club, a restaurant, bar and modern social club and Funny Library Coffee Shop, a communal work space that will house an assortment of whimsical and funny books and games.

"Glasgow is a dynamic city with a rich history that is extra special to me as my wife Joan is a proud Glaswegian," said Sir Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group. "Since launching our first property in 2015, Virgin Hotels has established a beloved brand, always ensuring that our offerings embrace and showcase the local community culture for all travelers to enjoy; and this property will surely do the same."

"We are thrilled to announce this exciting development in the vibrant city of Glasgow," said James Bermingham, CEO of Virgin Hotels. "Glasgow features distinctive art, music, shopping and much more, making it the perfect destination for our newest hotel. Virgin Hotels Glasgow will possess all of the defining characteristics of our brand, including innovative Chamber (room) design, forward-thinking technology, creative food and beverage offerings and unforgettable entertainment. We look forward to welcoming both locals and visitors to enjoy our unmatched lifestyle experience."

Virgin Hotels Glasgow will be completed in partnership with owner and developer Silk Property Group alongside Siggis Capital as the asset manager, architects 21st Architecture and RM Funds as a financial partner. All of Virgin's Partners have extensive experience in developing, owning and operating hotels in UK and Europe. Virgin Hotels Glasgow will take to heart the brand wide celebrated "No Nickel and Diming" policy, which includes street-priced minibars, free WIFI, and zero amenity fees.

"We fully expect the hotel to become a beacon of activity and showcase Virgin's ability to bring something different and much needed to Glasgow. With numerous investments in Glasgow, we are so thrilled to bring another incredible project to this energetic city."

The property joins Virgin Hotels' rapidly growing roster, which includes Virgin Hotels Chicago, Virgin Hotels Dallas, Virgin Hotels Nashville and recently opened Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.
