    Technology is to the fore, with keyless entry, self-check-in and check-out, plus  the RED app, which guests can use for a number of things, from requesting extra pillows to arranging a group ride to airport.

    Radisson RED Glasgow is the brand’s fifth hotel to open around the world, joining RED hotels in Brussels, Campinas, Cape Town, and Minneapolis. In terms of design, natural materials meet colourful accents and eclectic design pieces – the bold wallpaper, designed by Glasgow comic artist Frank Quitely, is intended to make the rooms feel fun, modern and minimal.

    The ground floor space with the OUIBar + KTCHN is the hotel’s food, drink and social hub, serving food, wine and craft beers.

    Meanwhile, each of the three events studios – 66sqm, 40sqm and 55sqm – is equipped with modern tech and super-fast Wi-Fi.


    Hotel Curator Michael Weston said: “We’re all so excited to open and introduce RED to Glasgow and the wider UK. The RED experience is different – we encourage laughter, playfulness and even a little mischief with guests, and we use our spaces as a showcase for some of the best local talent in art, design, music and fashion. We really hope people come to the hotel, love what they see, and come back again and again.”

    Richard Moore, Area Senior Vice President, UK, Ireland & Western Europe, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Radisson RED is bold and pushes the boundaries of the traditional hospitality experience, and I can’t think of a better fit for the UK’s first RED than the city of Glasgow. We’re genuinely excited to give people the opportunity to enjoy RED, and I feel confident that as well as having a fantastic product in a great location, we have the best team in place to deliver a memorable and RED experience for guests.”
