G2 7DA Travel Guide
Well, that told us. No sooner had we expressed doubts that Hotel Indigo Glasgow would be opening on schedule last Monday, what with the website not accepting bookings and no staff around to answer the phone when we called to reserve, someone from the hotel told us we were wrong, and that the hotel did in fact open as planned on 18 April. Our bad. Maybe having some staff on rezzie duty three days before opening might have solved that confusion.
Anyways, a room tonight will set you back £129, whereas last time we checked, they were going for £115. Itís an odd decision to up their prices, seeing as Malmaison, which is probably the hotel theyíre most likely trying to challenge, has rooms for tonight for £89, or, if you spend £75 in the restaurant, theyíll give you a room for £10.
Alternatively, you can score a room at the delicious Hotel du Vin Glasgow for £75 tonight. And that, donít forget, is not only among our top sexy hotels evah, but also comes with free sightings of The Great Piers Morgan thrown in on the side.
Ruh roh, are we looking at another delayed hotel opening? This time itís the turn of the Hotel Indigo Glasgow, which was scheduled to open on Monday. Only problem is, that although the website states that the opening date is on track, it isnít showing any availability until the following Monday, 25 April.
It does, however, have a note saying that for reservations before 2 May, you're meant to call them. So, to give them the benefit of the doubt, we gave them a call today (during office hours - at 3pm Glasgow time no less) and found the phone ringing, ringing... and going straight to voicemail. Not answering the phone at 3pm? That doesn't sound like a hotel opening in three days time.
According to the website, it's due to open April 18, though the fact that reservations are only being taken for 2 May onwards makes us think that it's going to be another delayed opening. Located on the corner of Waterloo and Blythswood Street, in the heart of Glasgow's financial district the hotel will be housed within a 19th century Victorian building - letís just hope they keep some of its original features.
Rated a four-star plus each of the 94 rooms will have wood floors, wool rugs, unique murals featuring city scenes, free WiFi and iPod docks. Whilst the property will also feature state of the art business facilities and a bar and grill named Limelight. And we have to say, that studded headboard is looking fly already.
