Apex debuts in Glasgow after £10.5m fit out


The Apex City of Glasgow has now officially opened its doors, with the hotel having been created to bring a distinct boutique style to the area.

The four-star hotel marks the Scottish hotel group Apex’s first foray into the market in Glasgow, and has opened after an extensive £10.5m fit out.

The property is situated in the centre of Glasgow, close to Style Mile, SSE Hydro and King’s Theatre.

The new hotel has 104 bedrooms, including five suites with views across the city.

It is Apex Hotels’ 9th property in the portfolio, joining other hotels in Edinburgh, Dundee and London.

Apex is building a reputation on offering affordable luxury to the leisure and corporate markets.

‘The Lounge’ is the group’s new lounge restaurant concept which makes its debut at Apex City of Glasgow. It offers flexible spaces for work, rest and play with all-day dining.

Helen Gallagher, general manager of Apex City of Glasgow, comments: “The Glasgow market continues to boom following the success of last year’s summer of sport. It made perfect sense to us choose the city for our newest hotel.

“Its location means it is at the heart of the action both for the corporate and leisure markets and we expect to welcome many of the visitors who come to Glasgow because of its reputation for shopping, culture and music.

“We’ve created a stylish hotel that offers everything you’d expect from four star accommodation and more – we know that it’s the little things that can make a big difference to a guest’s stay and that’s why we offer extras like free local calls and Sky in every room as standard.”
