What's on the weekend of 23-24 May, 2014? One hotel is full

Is there some event in Glasgow this weekend? I looked at booking Grasshoppers Hotel but all double rooms are already booked!

Don't know, however the Grasshoppers hotel is budget priced and not all that big so it may just sell out early

There could be any number of reasons?

Glasgow hosts a lot of big conventions, we are the entertainment capital of Scotland so there could be a huge name from the rock world playing that weekend.

Another possibility is that the Monday is a UK Bank Holiday and Glasgow is a popular City Break destination.

Try other Hotels.

Other dates around that time are still open, so it must be some event. Wouldn't people coming for the bank holiday weekend book three nights, not just two? Sunday night is still open, just Friday and Saturday fully booked.

We'll hope for a rock concert, and look for a different hotel in that area. We would like to walk to and from the train stations ( arriving at queen Street and departing from GG Central). Suggestions?

While Grasshoppers was above Central Stn the City Centre is compact.

The 2 stations are only 5 mins walk apart.

Any hotel within your budget in the centre will do.

If there is a concert on when you get here it is highly unlikely you will get tickets!

Possibly the owners' daughter is getting married and they are giving the family all the rooms that weekend. Who knows?
