Motto by Hilton to open first hotel in the U.K.

Hilton has revealed plans to extend the Motto by Hilton brand to the U.K. with the anticipated opening of Motto by Hilton Glasgow on the banks of the River Clyde in Fall 2024.

The 186-room hotel will follow the brand’s European debut in Rotterdam, with the Netherlands hotel opening last week. Motto by Hilton Glasgow will join more than 160 Hilton properties across the U.K. and seven existing Hilton properties in the Glasgow area. The hotel is part of a franchise agreement with Cycas Hospitality and is under the ownership of Silk Property Group.

Motto by Hilton is an urban, lifestyle brand designed to help guests live like a local in prime locations globally. Guests can expect flexible hospitality experiences with features such as multiple confirmed connecting rooms for larger groups, and communal spaces with access to gather, work or socialize for guests and locals.

Motto by Hilton Glasgow will feature interiors influenced by distinctive Glaswegian architecture styles, including Art Noveau references and Mackintosh-inspired designs. The property overlooks the River Clyde. According to the company, Glasgow’s colorful character, industrial history and incredible art and music scene greatly appeal to domestic and international travelers, drawing 2.5 million visitors to the city in 2019.
