The eagerly anticipated Radisson RED Glasgow opens its doors today in Scotland’s largest city, ready to shake up the UK’s hotel scene.
Radisson RED is Radisson Hotel Group’s upscale, select service hotel brand that 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 also the first new-build Radisson RED property to open in Europe. Located in the heart of the city’s music and art scene, RED Glasgow provides travellers with an ideal base from which to explore the city and is only minutes away from some of the best music venues in Scotland, including the world-renowned SSE Hydro.
From keyless entry to self-check-in and check-out, technology features heavily throughout the hotel. Managed through the RED app, guests can do everything from requesting extra pillows to arranging a group ride to airport. They can even chat to other guests and find out where the best gigs are in town that night.
Radisson RED Glasgow is the brand’s fifth hotel to open around the world, joining RED hotels in Brussels, Campinas, Cape Town, and Minneapolis.
The ground floor space with the OUIBar + KTCHN is the hotel’s food, drink and social hub, serving food, wine andcraft beers – open all day and offering food-on-the-go.
For anyone looking to watch the sunset over the River Clyde, the hotel’s new RED Sky Bar, Glasgow’s first rooftop bar, will be the place to be. Opening in early May, guests can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the action with a RED cocktail in hand, tapas to share, and music from some of the city’s best up and coming DJ’s.
