Work is scheduled to start within the coming months on a 245-bedroom AC by Marriott hotel in Glasgow's George Square.
The hotel is set to be part of a £100m mixed use development to transform the north east corner of George Square into a new neighbourhood called ‘Love Loan', which is being developed by the Chris Stewart Group (CSG).
CSG is finishing demolition works ahead of construction, which will involve bringing A and B listed buildings back into public use through sensitive alteration and adaptation, with plans to create a "sustainable and energy efficient community".
Chris Stewart, chief executive of the Chris Stewart Group, said: "We have a great relationship with Marriott having opened the Courtyard hotel in Edinburgh a number of years ago. We're delighted to be working with them again on the same franchise basis, this time bringing their AC brand to Scotland. The interiors of the hotel are very much understated elegance and timeless in style, which works in both the new build element as well as the A listed 266 George Street element."
