“Wonderful Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Always my first choice when visiting Glasgow!

Located on Argyle Street, close to the motorway/highway and only walking distance from the main shopping and city life of Buchanan St, etc. It is also located within walking distance of the Train Station!

I have returned to this hotel a few times as they have always been consistent and deliever great customer service.

Room Tip: Ask for a South facing room. They are generally quite I find and have a better view.

Spoke at a conference here recently .Conference room really needs a makeover .Noted that two of three stalls in Gents toilet were out of use with cracked seat in the remaining one ;I spoke with a receptionist about this whilst trying to resolve a parking problem .

Unhelpful and not a problem solver ,was given my problem straight back to resolve myself .When i mentioned the problem with the Gents ,she mumbled about passing it on, no changes 8 hours later .

Conference lunch buffet was really nice and restaurant staff a much pleasanter bunch than front desk.

Stayed here for a couple of nights on business, the hotel is close to the M8 (noisy) and town centre. Room was spacious, very comfortable bed and I even managed to open the window for some fresh air. As others have said, a fridge in the room would be good, there is room for one. Bathroom looking a little tired, but clean. Sadly, I had a room with a view over the bins again, but suspect as my business hotel bookings are made by an agency which bargains hard on price this is inevitable.

Staff very friendly and helpful, with the exception of the concierge who did not appear to notice customers waiting to reclaim left luggage, with a taxi waiting outside it would have been better if he was more efficient. Breakfast was good, with a large number of options.

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend in Glasgow during November 2012. It's in a convenient location, about 5 mins brisk walk from Glasgow central station. If you don't fancy walking then there are plenty of buses that go past, and a taxi will probably take you there for a small fee.

The hotel is your typical convention/conference hotel, with a large number of rooms and a leisure club. For me the real attraction was the leisure club, which was excellent, a gym that operates as a health club in its own right, with great equipment and a decent pool. It was a really nice way to spend the afternoon before heading out on the town.

Staff were very friendly, and able to give good feedback on the area. There are plenty of newspapers and reading materials in the lobby, and the exec lounge is well-stocked with snacks, drinks, canapes and all the usual stuff you'd expect.

The hotel rooms themselves were disappointing. They were the same size as you'd get in a London hotel (tiny!), and really need refurbishment. The décor is really showing its age, and some of the furniture/cabinets were well-worn. Water pressure in the shower could do with a bit more zip. That said, the bed and linens were great, really comfy and clean.

Breakfast was great, Scottish breakfast with haggis, black pudding and your usual artery-clogging fare. Fantastic :-) If you prefer you can have your healthier stuff, but when in Glasgow...

On reflection, I don't think that I would choose this hotel for a weekend away again not until they have a refurb. There are plenty of modern, spacious hotels in the area at a similar or lower price. It is charging 4* prices for an ok hotel room, hence the rating.

This was great value for money. The spa treatments are fab. The pool, sauna and steam room were great and very relaxing. The hotel location is great for shopping and dining out in town. The concierge is a wealth of knowledge and if you sign up to Marriott rewards, you earn points for future free stays.

Stayed here for business, was a great few nights sleep, room nice and comfy, and everything required!

If I could give any room for improvement it would be to include a fridge in the room, there clearly used to be one

Breakfast excellent, everything you could need, including haggis which was excellent

Nice hotel, good location (central). Breakfast was great. We had a meal in the bar on arriving but not very good for a 4 star. Huge chunks of carrot and potatoes with steak pie. Looked unappetising. Pastry was not home made. Pasta dish was quite nice.
Room was nice but cold so was given a fan heater (after asking a few times). Room service was excellent. Pool was nice. Room was clean but bathroom was a bit tired. Took a couple of attempts to flush toilet and taps leaked on to area around the sink. There is parking but its £8.00 per night. Overall nice enough hotel for B&B (I'd eat in some of Glasgow's fab restaurants at night). Quite expensive for what you get hence the Average score.
