Virgin Hotels is looking to expand its portfolio in Scotland and the United States with three new openings set for 2022.
Virgin Hotels has announced it will expand in Scotland, with anticipated openings in Edinburgh and Glasgow scheduled this summer. The 222-room Edinburgh hotel will be located at the landmark India Buildings, constructed in the 19th century. The Glasgow outpost will be located on Clyde Street in the city centre, with panoramic views of the River Clyde and 240 rooms.
Virgin will also expand on America’s east coast with its first property opening in New York, located in Manhattan. With 28 floors and 463 rooms, the hotel will also feature a rooftop pool and bar.
“Expanding into the United Kingdom is a major and much-anticipated milestone for Virgin Hotels. Our two new hotels in Scotland blend their distinctive personalities with the vibrant, playful, and personalised touch unmistakably Virgin. We couldn’t be more thrilled to call the beloved cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow home to our first locations outside the United States,” said Virgin Hotels CEO James Bermingham. “And with our first New York City hotel following shortly after, Virgin Hotels is poised for a busy year of growth and elevation—and it’s only the start”.
