The new premium budget ibis Styles Glasgow Centre George Square has opened its doors following a £7m investment converting the property from the abandoned Telfer House building.
Operated by Glasgow-based Redefine|BDL Hotels, the hotel has been designed with Glasgow’s culture in mind, along with a large dose of humour as it celebrates the city’s bold personality.
From the grit of the Clydeside shipyards and the creative genius of Glasgow’s most famous sons, to the hilarious traits of “The Big Yin” himself, Billy Connolly, the ibis Styles Glasgow Centre George Square captures the city’s bountiful banter throughout its design.
Inge Van Ooteghem, SVP Operations Economy and Budget Hotels, comments: “We are delighted to open ibis Styles Glasgow Centre George Square – a hotel that perfectly blends humour and creative flair throughout its design. Whether guests are here for business or leisure, they’ll experience the vibrancy and charm of Glasgow through the fabric of the hotel walls.”
Whilst the design is outrageously fun, there are subtle touches throughout the hotel. Carets feature quotations from the local shipyard works and weaved within them is the beloved rose emblem, a subtle nod to the world-renowned Glaswegian architect, designer and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Guest rooms feature a digital print headboard featuring iconic images of the city and traffic cone lights, with stencilled crane illustrations in the bathroom mirrors and on the bedrooms walls, giving the impression the TV is suspended from a height.
A city where visitors are welcomed with a warm hug and a wee dram, ibis Styles Glasgow Centre George Square offers business and leisure travellers the perfect stay with great location at a great price. Visit www.ibis.com to book your stay.
