As part of the company’s global hotel makeover, Holiday Inn has spent thousands of pounds giving the popular hotel at Glasgow Airport a freshening up the year before it celebrates its 40th birthday. The hotel is a popular stopover point for thousands of travellers every year, including air crews and celebrities. Every year, more than 120,000 guests stay at the hotel, which is less than a minute’s walk from the terminal building.

Under the makeover, new signs have been installed and new music has been introduced. Rooms benefit from more than 1,200 new pillows and more than 1,000 m2 of new carpet has been laid. Altogether, more than £150,000 has been spent on the hotel, which has had famous guests including Elton John, Rod Stewart, former-PM Margaret Thatcher and Billy Connolly. Guests will now enjoy the smell of the hotel’s signature fragrance in the lobby.

Holiday Inn Glasgow Airport celebrates its 40th birthday next year. It opened as the Excelsior in 1971. At the time, it was one of the most luxurious hotels in Glasgow, as well as the only hotel at the airport. In 1992, it became the Forte Crest Hotel. The change to Holiday Inn came a decade ago.
