Best Hotels for Business Travel Glasgow

Following years of strategic investment into Glasgow’s cultural and sports scene, the city is today recognised as a leading events destination across the UK. As a reflection of its impressive status, the Glasgow hotel market has recently welcomed a variety of quality venues for corporate and leisure events.

In 2018, the Glasgow hotel sector grew at eight times the UK average, with the average cost for an overnight stay increasing by 7.5% and occupancy rates increasing to 79.1%.

Over the past five years the city has opened 17 new hotel properties, with another 26 properties currently in the final planning stage. Looking ahead, 60 new projects are expected to open over the next five years, adding 7,608 rooms to the market. 

Specifically, growth is expected around the Pacific Quay and the SECC Waterfront area, as the area hosts a number of key venues including the SEC, Glasgow Science Centre and IMAX.

With a booming industry seeing heightened demand, the city’s growth demonstrates the importance of implementing a preferred hotel programme, ensuring an affordable rate for business travellers and last room rate availability.
