GLASGOW, Scotland - Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor is delighted to announce a £1.3 million refurbishment programme, restoring and upgrading 96 bedrooms and suites in a style befitting the grandeur of the landmark building in Glasgow's West End.

The six-week programme will involve a complete overhaul of the bedrooms including the installation of new fixtures and fittings, fresh décor and a brand new look and feel to each of the rooms.

Stuart Nelson, general manager of Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor, said, "We're delighted to be able to announce this further investment in our property.  Coupled with our new stylish steak restaurant Bo'Vine and cocktail lounge Bobar, as well as plans for additional investment in 2012, we are continuing the ongoing transformation of one of Glasgow's most iconic hotels."

Design consultants Cunningham McLean have been commissioned with the interior design and project management for the scheme, which will start at the beginning of October 2011 and is due for completion in January 2012.  The bedrooms will be designed using a palette of silvers and dark greys with a dark oak timber finish to the wood and pale leathers.

Sandy Phillips, director of Cunningham McLean, said, "This is a design-led project which will give a quality boutique feel to this iconic hotel. It is fantastic to be able to reflect the elegance of the original Georgian terrace within the bedroom plan, something the hotel was keen to make the basis of the new design".

Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor recently invested £300k in creating the stylish West End steak restaurant, Bo'Vine.  Since opening in 2010, the restaurant has become a firm favourite with foodies and regularly showcases the finest locally sourced ingredients in its mouthwatering dishes.  Bo'Vine prides itself in offering the best Scottish matured fillet, rib eye, sirloin and Chateaubriand steaks.
