Manager of Glasgow’s new ibis Styles revealed
Wednesday, 15 August 2018
The man who will look after the soon-to-open ibis Styles Glasgow Centre West has been appointed.
Jason McKerrell, who hails from Ayrshire, will take up the Hotel Manager post prior to the hotel’s opening in the coming weeks.
The new property will be the second ibis Styles hotel in Glasgow, joining the brand’s first hotel in the city – on Miller Street – which opened in 2015.
As well as running the new hotel on Glasgow’s Waterloo Street when it opens, Jason will assist General Manager Rory MacAleece – who was looked after the Miller Street property, and is now set to oversee operations across both ibis Styles hotels.
With a unique design inspired by Glasgow’s vibrant music scene, ibis Styles Glasgow Centre West will boast 137 contemporary bedrooms as well as a bar area.
Hotelier Jason, who has more than 13 years’ industry experience, worked at hotels and resorts across Benidorm in Spain from 2005 until 2017, when he took up the post of Food & Beverage Manager for Crerar Scotland in Pitlochry.
Jason McKerrell, Hotel Manager of ibis Styles Glasgow Centre West, said: “Glasgow’s hotel market is booming right now, so it’s very exciting to be looking after the city’s latest addition – particularly following the success of the ibis Styles property on Miller Street.
“ibis Styles Glasgow Centre West is in a fantastic central location, close to Central Station and a stone’s throw from all the amazing shopping, bars, restaurants and famous attractions Glasgow has to offer. We’re also perfectly positioned within the city’s business district for any corporate guests. We can’t wait to open our doors to welcome our first guests soon.”
The hotel is operated by the UK’s leading independent hotel management company, RBH.
