Glasgow Marriott Hotel, a leading hotel in the heart of Scotland’s largest city, has announced a comprehensive renovation project designed to elevate guest experiences with a complete revamp of the public spaces, luxurious upgrades, new facilities, and contemporary styling, transforming the hotel into a modern, stylish design-led destination.

This award-winning 303-room Glasgow Marriott Hotel now features a spectacular new Greatroom, the pulse of every Marriott Hotel, where the guest journey begins with a heartfelt welcome. The Greatroom encompasses the reception area, lobby, a beautiful new lounge bar, and the signature Cast Iron Grill restaurant; a place to socialise and connect, work or unwind.

All guest rooms are included in the upgrade with an additional six spacious Junior Suites created, there are 75 Executive Rooms benefiting from access to the Marriott Hotel’s Executive Lounge and an enhancement of the ten meeting rooms with project completion due December 2024.

The Hotel’s interiors are inspired by the local surroundings and reflect the unique character and charm of the area with beautifully appointed rooms, bespoke fabric and carpet designs in a fresh contemporary colour scheme featuring spacious ensuites. Other standard aspects include indulgent Marriott bedding, cosy armchairs, air-conditioning and 55-inch wall mounted flat screen TVs.

Glasgow’s iconic bridges, best known for connecting the city’s districts, music and exhibition and leisure venues form the basis for lobby interiors with curves and linear forms used to bridge the space within the public entrance areas. The mood in the connecting bar area is created through clean lines and sharp detailing with tile textures reflecting the rippling waters of the River Clyde. Pops of burnt orange, deep blue paired with light timber tones feature in public areas with a palette of blues, greens and muted tan accents reflected elsewhere.

The reception desk features a striking ceramic plate mural, which is a real talking piece, that’s inspired by the city’s ceramic industry. Made up of individually decorated plates – playing homage to the city’s key landmarks – on further inspection, look closer and you’ll see the Finnieston Crane, SEC walkway, The Armadillo and the infamous “squinty bridge”. The Hotel’s Executive Lounge is inspired by the Nouveau Era and Glasgow’s engineering history with geometric shapes and Glasgow Maps abstracted in a striking tile layout.

Glasgow is celebrated for its art and design, vibrant music scene and designer shopping, it’s where the old and the new meet, bridging the past with the future; the new look Marriott encompasses all of this in its design blending the city’s rich history character and vibrancy, its manufacturing heritage, iconic bridges, and famous street murals. Multi-dimensional, textures and neutral colour palettes are woven throughout the Hotel’s artwork with furnishings and feature installations inspired by the City’s artisan trades – textiles, glass and pottery manufacture – all historically produced on the banks of the Clyde.

The guest experience is elevated with inspired artworks from the public areas through to bedrooms and meeting spaces, which display works that reflect Glasgow’s Architecture; all guest rooms feature beautiful pieces from Glasgow’s famous street murals on buildings.
