Vir­gin con­firms first Euro­pean ho­tel

The Business Travel Magazine - - The Review -

THE vir­gin Ho­tels Group will open its first Euro­pean prop­erty in Ed­in­burgh. Sir Richard Bran­son has re­vealed plans to ‘re-en­vi­sion’ the Scot­tish cap­i­tal’s In­dia Build­ings on Vic­to­ria Street, con­vert­ing it to a 225-room ho­tel sched­uled to open in 2020. The prop­erty will fea­ture mul­ti­ple din­ing and drink­ing out­lets – in­clud­ing the brand’s flag­ship Com­mons Club – as well as nu­mer­ous meet­ing spaces.

“Ed­in­burgh is such an iconic city and we’re thrilled to be able to say it will be the home of the first Vir­gin Ho­tel in the UK and across Europe,” says Bran­son, Founder of the Vir­gin Group. Ho­tels in Nashville, Dal­las, Wash­ing­ton DC, New Or­leans, New York and Sil­i­con Val­ley are also in the pipe­line, and the group is also ex­plor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties in Bos­ton, Los An­ge­les, Mi­ami, Austin, Seat­tle and Lon­don.
