Dalata Hotel Group has reached its 50th hotel milestone with a property in Scotland under its Clayton Hotels brand.
The 303-room Clayton Hotel Glasgow City follows the opening of Maldron Hotel Glasgow in August 2021.
The 16-storey hotel has been developed at Glasgow’s Grade A-listed Custom House building, situated on Clyde Street in the St Enoch neighbourhood, and the hotel has secured a. BREEAM rating of Excellent for its sustainable design.
The refurbished listing building serves as the entrance to the hotel with a reception, public area, ballroom and event spaces located here. Connected to the building by a glazed ceiling is the Custom House Bar and Restaurant.
A terrace on the seventh floor provides space for both corporate and private events, with panoramic views across the city.
Dermot Crowley, CEO of Dalata Hotel Group, commented:
“The opening of our 50th hotel, Clayton Hotel Glasgow City is a significant milestone for us and is a further demonstration of the excellent team we have in Dalata, who continue to deliver on our ambitious growth strategy. We are delighted to expand our presence in Glasgow where we now have over 600 rooms.
“The hotel, our first with investment partners Union Investment, has been expertly developed at Glasgow’s Custom House, an iconic listed building that has been part of Glasgow City for 180 years. This truly stand-out property has been made possible through the hard work of our partners on the project – McAleer and Rushe who constructed the hotel on behalf of the developers Artisan Real Estate and our landlords Union Investment.”
