“training needs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2010

stayed her on Friday and Saturday night 9th and 20th March,

The room could have been a bit cleaner need to take a duster and hoover around the bedroom, it is a bit tired and worn to be honest.


Was impressed on check in,

my partner on the Saturday went to ask the Concierge about the walking time to the Kelvingrove gallery, she was astonished when she said her partner was familiar with the area only to be asked "do you mean your husband " to which she replied well my nearly husband, no we are not married but after a great 10 year we might give it some thought, I personally think the question was inappropriate and not relevant in any conversation, seeking directions

On check out we had 2 charges on our bill, 1 for the mini bar and 1 for the complimentary newspaper, both were removed without to much fuss by a quick call to reception following the express check out bill to our room, when i went to check we had no further charges, i was told you have nothing to pay, I asked about the car park and as quick as a flash the cost was added to my bill, so i did have something to pay, to be honest the receptionist on duty on Sunday morning was off hand and not in the slightest way warm or friendly, not ideal as a lasting impression.

We also experienced what seems to be the norm at weekends the usual drunken shouting in the corridors at 2am in the morning, people think drink is a suitable excuse for totally inappropriate behaviour and inconvenience to others.

The leisure facilities were excellent, as were the staff, the saving grace of this Hilton anyway.

Stayed the night after a charity event at the hotel. I have to say I was pleasantly suprised with the price and what you got. I payed a slightly bit more and stayed in the executive rooms, these are big and lavish. With it included access to the executive lounge which is where you have breakfast and between 6pm-8pm free selection of light bites and alcohol. Having stayed at a few Hiltons this is by far the best. The staff and friendly and curtious. The rooms are spotless. The only downside is the parking, they charge you £10 a day to park which I think is a bit extreme considering you are paying to stay there! You are within 10 mins walking distance to Sauchiehall Street where there is plenty to eat and drink.

This hotel is modern and clean, would definitely stay here again. It is not quite walking distance to the city center, you will need a 10 minute taxi ride, but that was worth it to us as we wanted the comfort of knowing we were staying at a Branded hotel that we could rely on. The lobby is huge with plenty of seating, and the bar was fun with great food and decently priced cocktails. The concierge helped us set up a few sightseeing tours, and went out of their way to help us confirm available tours in light of the bad weather. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable - quite large compared to other European guest rooms that I stayed in. I would definitely stay here again.

Went to this Hilton with partner for some R and R and in the usual Hilton fashion it delivered. We stayed in an executive room on floor 20, the room was good with a balcony (not really useable in Scotland in Feb though!).The only minor gripe about the room was that the hot water could be warmer and indeed so could the room but it was ok.
The executive lounge is good if a bit souless due to the lack of windows but the staff were extremley helpful.
I do grudge having to pay for parking on top of a £200 a room but thats city centres I suppose and the access was easy off the motorway.
The location is slightly off pitch but if you can walk it is a 10/15 min walk to George square and if not there is a taxi rank outside the hotel.
It also has a fast check in/out unlike some.
All in all a good base to use for visiting Glasgow and further afield.
We will be going back.
