Grasshoppers is located close to the heart of the city centre with nearby access to the M8, M77 and M74 motorways, and as with all big cities, finding your way around can be complicated. Recent anti-congestion measures mean that Union Street is closed to private cars between the hours of 7am and 7pm and even outside these times parking is very difficult except for the briefest of drop-offs.(Note: taxis are unaffected by the restrictions).
If you're coming by car we recommend you park in the Jamaica Street Car Park, which is approx 300m south of the hotel and costs £9 per day if you use our discount voucher obtainable from reception when you check out (you don’t need it when you park).
Please see our guide to help you find your way here by car.
Public parking is available very close to Grasshoppers Hotel Glasgow.
Discounted parking rates have been agreed with Thistle Parking Jamaica Street for Grasshoppers guests at £8 per 24 hour stay. The car park holds the Safer Parking Award, has CCTV throughout and is supervised 24 hours a day. Please contact us for further information.
