Canadian hotel group Sandman Hotels has officially opened Sandman Signature Glasgow following its multi-million pound development of the Pegasus office building on West George Street.
It is Sandman’s first in the city and its second in Scotland following the Sandman Signature Aberdeen. The Group also has Signature hotels in London and Newcastle and is believed to have acquired a development site in Edinburgh.
The new 179-room, 10 floor, pet-friendly Sandman Signature Glasgow was granted planning permission to develop in 2019 and includes a fitness centre, private meeting and function rooms, the on-site bar and restaurant, Chop Grill & Bar.
Mitch Gaglardi, Director of Sandman Hotel Group United Kingdom & Ireland, 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.”
He added, “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.”
