We stayed in the Marriot Glasgow in Dec 2013
Hotel is well positioned for access by road and has parking facilities. The walk into the City Centre takes about 15 minutes, via a straight, flat, direct route, and is not a problem, if the weather is good and it is daylight. Walking at night is less attractive as the road is somewhat uninviting. However, there is a bus stop, for both directions, immediately outside the hotel (Bus No:1, which goes via George Square) and, the hotel is well served by Taxi (about £5 to Buchanan Gallery shops).
It is possible to walk to the SECC and Hydro venues – again, weather permitting – and takes about 20 minutes.
The hotel is comfortable, clean and well furnished. It provides more than adequate, comfortable, public seating areas throughout the hotel and a good bar and restaurant service. Bedrooms are well furnished, of a good size and with comfortable beds / pillows. Bathrooms are well appointed, well stocked with toiletries and, along with the room, are serviced to a very high standard daily. One issue was the shower curtain, which failed to prevent water covering floor area – a slipping hazard and necessitated using spare towels to mop up.
The children loved the swimming pool, and used it three times, in 24 hours! However, the route from hotel reception to the pool is rather tortuous and uninviting.
One of the best features of this hotel is the Staff. Friendly, helpful, highly trained / competent and a real pleasure to interface with. We regularly stay in Glasgow Hotels, and this ranks highly in our opinion and is value for money. Highly recommended.
