The £40m hotel has created 80 new jobs for the city and provides a vibrant new offering for visitors to Scotland’s largest city renowned for its culture, style and the friendliness of people.

In celebration of Glasgow’s strong cultural heritage and the hotel’s location with the city’s iconic theatre district, a dazzling troupe of local young people from Glasgow Ace Tribe Dance Company greeted the first guests arriving at the hotel.

Maldron Hotel Glasgow City, centrally located at the junction of Renfrew Street and Renfield Street, is a stunning 12-storey hotel. It features new stylish spacious air-conditioned bedrooms, a bar and restaurant, resident’s gym, and state-of-the-art business facilities. The hotel is also highly tech-enabled with chrome cast in each bedroom, digital check-in and a virtual guest services platform.

Maldron Hotel Glasgow City’s General Manager, Hazel Galloway commented: “What better way to mark our official opening today and welcome our first guests than an uplifting and energetic performance from the fantastic young members of Glasgow Ace Tribe Dance Company and I am also extremely proud of our own 80-strong team’s performance today! People are at the heart of our hotel, and they have worked extremely hard to ensure the finest welcome to our guests arriving today.

“The preparation which goes into an opening of this kind is considerable – and it takes a huge team effort, and we are delighted to welcome guests today.

“We are passionate about all the Maldron brand offers, quality and value, and we are confident that it will be just as popular in the Scottish market as it has already proven in Ireland and in other parts of the UK. Glasgow offers a blend of internationally-acclaimed museums and galleries, stunning architecture, vibrant nightlife, fantastic shopping.”


A number of Scottish and Glasgow tourism and business organisations welcomed the new opening:

Welcoming the new arrival to Glasgow, Jim Clarkson, Regional Leadership Director (West), VisitScotland commented: “Congratulations to the team at the Maldron Hotel on opening in Glasgow this summer. At a time when we are working hard with partners to restore the city’s tourism industry to growth, this is a welcome addition to Glasgow capacity for attracting new events and leisure business in the months and years ahead.

“Tourism is a force for good, creating economic and social value, and enhancing the wellbeing of everyone who experiences it. This new hotel and its 80-strong workforce represent a fresh boost for the city centre, and a great sign that Glasgow is back in business.”


Susan Deighan, Director of City Marketing & External Relations at Glasgow Life said: “Glasgow enjoys an international reputation as a vibrant, welcoming destination with an unrivalled tourism offer and world-class customer service. Attracting the Maldron brand is a perfect fit for the city and this stunning new development, located at the heart of the city centre, will offer visitors an ideal base from which to explore Glasgow’s outstanding cultural experiences and attractions as well as Scotland’s breath-taking natural landscape.”

Stuart Patrick, Chief Executive of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, said: “As we approach COP26 later this year and prepare for the World Cycling Championships in 2023, the Maldron Glasgow City Hotel will complement the city’s portfolio of hospitality businesses ready to cater to both leisure and business guests alike.

Glasgow was named as the World’s Leading Events and Festivals destination in 2019, and as restrictions are eased and we begin to once again play host, the Maldron Glasgow City Hotel is a welcomed investment which will support the rebuild of our city centre for future events.”


Maldron Glasgow City Hotel offers interactive Clevertouch technology in all meeting facilities, alongside Clickshare wireless connectivity, enabling ease of streaming for virtual meeting integration.

The Dalata Hotel Group PLC, the largest hotel operator in Ireland and one of the fastest growing in the UK, already operates over 45 hotels across the UK and Ireland and is an award-winning employer, but today’s opening of Maldron Hotel Glasgow City is its first in Scotland.

Maldron Hotel Glasgow City represents a significant investment and vote of confidence in Scotland by Dalata Hotel Group PLC, providing a substantial economic boost to the city as it recovers from the impact of Covid-19.

The hotel is located on the site of the former STV headquarters and is perfectly positioned close to the city's major transport links.

The new 80-strong team in Maldron Glasgow have all been enrolled in development programmes through the Dalata Academy. These programmes will be undertaken by personnel across all hotel departments, including chefs, reception, food and beverage, sales, marketing, HR, operations, maintenance, accounts, reservations and housekeeping.

Aligned to Dalata’s Green Tourism commitment, the hotel has been built to a BREEAM sustainability assessment of ‘Very Good’ standard and has new technologies such as Air Source Heat Pumps and Heat Exchangers to reduce carbon emissions. It also holds the ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard which shows they have agreed to comply with Covid-19 safety guidelines.

Maldron Hotels can be found in prime locations throughout Ireland with expansion across the UK in recent years. Providing rest and relaxation that's always close to the action, whether it's leisure or business, a romantic escape or a family break. Each Maldron Hotel offers the perfect combination of facilities and service, value and hospitality, designed to meet the needs of guests, whether for business or pleasure.
