GLASGOW, UK -  Work has started on a massive one year refurbishment and improvement plan at one of the city's most loved and well used hotels - Hilton Glasgow.

With over eighty bedrooms receiving a well needed upgrade as well as a new front door has enhanced its offering for busy executives thanks to a £100,000 refurbishment of its Executive Lounge.

Open to visitors staying in the hotel's executive floor bedrooms and Hilton HHonors Gold & Diamond members, the lounge has moved to the ground floor giving easier access for guests visiting the hotel.

The lounge has been completely transformed to create a relaxed haven for busy business travellers. The layout ensures privacy for business meetings and offers state-of-the-art business service support to accommodate requests from secretarial support to updating flight bookings.

The work was undertaken by Thompson MacLeod, one of Scotland's leading interior designers and has completely transformed the space. It is kitted out with full dining facilities, business pods for internet access and cutting-edge art work and accessories, offering both intimate surroundings for the individual while also being perfect for small business meetings.

Craig Gardner, Hilton Glasgow general manager, said: "With more and more work being done away from the conventional office, business people and busy executives find themselves constantly travelling for meetings.

"They need to be more flexible about how and where they work whilst maintaining productivity, be it to finish off a presentation, catch up on email or meet with clients. Our new lounge provides a unique facility within Glasgow city centre and is a direct response to our clients' needs."
