The first ever Radisson RED in the UK has opened in Glasgow. The 174-room hotel is aimed at millenials and just the fifth of the brand to open worldwide. It features keyless entry and self check-in and out. It also has its own app that guests can use for additional hotel requests and for chatting with other guests.
Curator Michael Weston said: "We're all so excited to open and introduce RED to Glasgow and the wider UK.
"The RED experience is different - we encourage laughter, playfulness and even a little mischief with guests, and we use our spaces as a showcase for some of the best local talent in art, design, music and fashion.
"We really hope people come to the hotel, love what they see, and come back again and again."
The hotel has a food, drink and social hub on the ground floor and a Sky Bar, Glasgow’s first rooftop bar. It also has three event and games studios that feature modern tech and super fast WiFi.
Richard Moore, area senior vice president, UK, Ireland & Western Europe, Radisson Hotel Group, said: "Radisson RED is bold and pushes the boundaries of the traditional hospitality experience, and I can't think of a better fit for the UK's first RED than the city of Glasgow.
"We're genuinely excited to give people the opportunity to enjoy RED, and I feel confident that as well as having a fantastic product in a great location, we have the best team in place to deliver a memorable and RED experience for guests."
