Courtyard Glasgow Airport has undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment before joining Courtyard by Marriott, marking the brand’s debut in the city. Formerly Ramada Glasgow Airport Hotel, the hotel is conveniently situated on Glasgow Airport’s doorstep, and a 15 minutes’ drive from the city centre.
Courtyard Glasgow Airport
All 114 guestrooms have undergone an extensive renovation, in addition to the public areas, leisure facilities and restaurant and bar venue, The Bistro. Carrying the latest Courtyard by Marriott design, the new spaces offer business and leisure travellers a refreshing hotel experience with contemporary and efficient design to ensure convenience and productivity throughout the entire stay.
The lobby has been redesigned into a flexible space to promote engagement with guests. The GoBoard, a unique Courtyard by Marriott concept, offers touchscreen technology to allow users to view the latest airport information and research popular tourist attractions. Guests can also enjoy the use of complimentary WIFI.
New features of the property include a fully-equipped fitness centre, as well as a business centre with three meeting rooms. In addition, the hotel’s 24-hour market provides refreshments and travel accessories. The hotel also plans to add a further 56 rooms by mid-2017 taking the total to 170.
The transformation follows a significant investment by owner Cairn Group.
Courtyard Glasgow Airport is one of two additions for Courtyard by Marriott in Scotland this year, with Courtyard Edinburgh anticipated to open in December 2016. Courtyard by Marriott has one existing outpost in Scotland; Courtyard Aberdeen Airport, which opened in 2013.
As one of Europe’s fastest growing airports, 8.7 million passengers travelled through Glasgow Airport’s doors in 2015. The city itself is a popular conferencing location thanks to the likes of The SSE Hydro, SECC and the Armadillo, attracting thousands of conference delegates each year.
