The Grand Central Hotel opened its doors in the heart of Glasgow in 1883. Constructed in the Queen Anne Victorian style, the hotel is a great example of this architectural approach, complete with picturesque details, intricate gables and multi-paned windows. The Grand Central Hotel took its place in history as the venue to which the world’s first long-distance television pictures were transmitted on 24 May 1927 by John Logie Baird. Since then, the Central Hotel has entertained most of the world’s leading politicians – from JFK to Winston Churchill, and a multitude of Hollywood superstars including Frank Sinatra & Roy Rogers. A much-loved icon in the city, the hotel has recently undergone a 20 million pound refurbishment, assuring its place as one of Glasgow’s leading 4-star hotels. The hotel was the winner of 7 awards at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2013, including Scottish Hotel of the Year.
Charming and cozy, our bedrooms at the Grand Central Hotel are thoughtfully furnished to create a relaxing environment after a long day of work or exploration.
