citizenM to open new Glasgow property

Holland-based hotel operator citizenM is to launch its third property - and its first outside Amsterdam - on 9 September with the opening of a 198-bedroom site in Glasgow.

Located on the corner of Hope and Renfrew Streets in the heart of the city, the group's new property has been developed in partnership with the Amsterdam-based architectural firm, concrete. Guests will enter the eight-storey citizenM Glasgow through a double-height, glazed entrance leading to the first floor lobby. A canteenM - a kiosk-style cafeteria will also be on offer.

Furnishings by Hella Jongerius, Verner Panton, Jasper Morrison and Vitra - the hotel group's interior design partner - have been used in the public areas, while rooms now feature an integrated bathroom, larger closet and vanity units and a built-in worktable. citizenM chief operating officer Michael Levie said: "Glasgow is actually the number-one conference city outside London, and the UK's second retail destination. And it has plenty of music, art, shopping, everything. We really like its dynamics."

The Glasgow property forms part of a wider bid to expand the citizenM brand, with a new site scheduled to open on London's South Bank in 2011. A second London property - Tower Hill - will open in 2012. Two other hotels are also planned for New York, US, while the group is also eyeing up China, Hong Kong, Paris, Milan and Zurich for the launch of new properties.
