Yotel plans to open a 256-room hotel in Glasgow city centre, creating more than 100 jobs.

The property will be the chain’s second hotel in Scotland and fifth in the UK.

The new hotel, which is expected to open in November next year, will be located in a converted building opposite Glasgow Central Station.

Features will include a rooftop bar and a bowling alley.

Yotel chief executive Hubert Viriot said: “Glasgow is a forward-looking city that has real vibrancy and energy, bolstered by careful planning and investment initiatives.

“The city is building on its excellent infrastructure and is shaping up to be a world-class business destination.

“These were all important characteristics that helped us choose Glasgow as our next UK location and we’re excited to be part of the positive momentum that is driving growth in the city.”

Rim Abram, vice president at Starwood Capital Group, a leading investor in Yotel through a controlled affiliate, added: “Following the announcement of Yotel Edinburgh in 2017, this is a very exciting next step in our strategic partnership.

“Glasgow continues to go from strength to strength with significant new investment planned for the years to come, and we believe that Yotel will bring something new and unique to Glasgow’s well-established hotel market.

“We are also incredibly excited to be creating Glasgow’s first rooftop food and beverage destination which will include a bowling alley – this will be a one-of-a-kind offering and clearly differentiate Yotel Glasgow from its competition.”
