Dalata Hotel Group has announced the opening of its first hotel in Scotland, creating 80 jobs locally.
The four-star Maldron hotel is situated on Renfrew St, a central location, which is near the city’s shopping, restaurant and theatre district.
The £40m property features 300 air-conditioned bedrooms, a bar and restaurant, resident’s gym, and business facilities.
The hotel is also highly tech-enabled with chrome cast in each bedroom, digital check-in and a virtual guest services platform.
Dalata said the new Maldron Hotel Glasgow City hotel represents a “significant investment and vote of confidence” in Scotland by Dalata, providing a “substantial economic boost” to the city as it recovers from the impact of Covid-19.
Dalata already operates over 45 hotels across the UK and Ireland. In 2022 the group will further strengthen its presence in Glasgow with the opening of a four-star Clayton Hotel on Customs Quay.
Hazel Galloway, general manager at Maldron Hotel Glasgow City, said: “It is a momentous occasion today and I am extremely proud to open this hotel in my home city after what has been a challenging year for everyone in hospitality.
“I believe we have assembled among the very best in the business for our 80-strong team and we worked extremely hard to ensure the finest of welcomes to our guests arriving today.”
