“Good value for money and great Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

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.

Stayed for three nights on a business trip. As always with this chain the staff were really friendly and polite. Lots of 'good morning's' and 'hello's' throughout the day. Rooms ok, TV always seems like you press a load of buttons and go through menus galore until you can watch TV. My real bug bare with this place is paying an £15 a day to have wifi in my room. That is boarding on being mean and cheap ... To the point it is putting me off coming back. There are lots of other hotels in the area.

Lovely weekend stay. The hotel was very convenient for the concert we went to at the hydro and the town centre for shopping. We were able to walk to both from the hotel and not use the car at all over the weekend. The hotel staff were all delightful and helpful. Breakfast was fabulous and liked the fact that it was available until 12.00. Our double room was quiet but clean. Dusty in parts but comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: our room was on 7th floor

Good deal obtained for a Saturday night in Glasgow made even better by a 1200 breakfast finish and check-out. Room was ok and clean although we had a problem with the toilet flush and a strange knocking sound during the night - guess this reflects other reviews - its not a bad hotel - needs some TLC. If I had paid full wack prob would have been a bit miffed.
Staff were really nice and very friendly at breakfast which makes a change for a chain hotel.

Stayed two nights
Not good value.
Sink and toilet cracked, paint peeling in bathroom.
Moved room, no shaving mirror, extra noisy air-con.

Old room prepared again for next 'visitors', suspect repairs not going to be made.

Disappointed in this hotel. We had booked in for a two night stay. The room we were allocated had a cracked sink. There was paint peeling of the bathroom wall with the flakes of paint on the floor. The toilet bowl was badly cracked... It looked at first glance like a giant spider was lurking in there. None of this damage looked new so I am sure the hotel must have been aware of it. After complaining we were moved to the next room, which was better although a magnifying mirror in the bathroom had been broken off and not replaced. The air con / heater had a rattling fan.
On the morning of our departure, we saw the room with the cracked sink, toilet and peeling paint made up ready to be let out again. Not impressed by the Marriottt and would not recommend it.
Oh... And £6 for an hours wifi was a charge I was not prepared to pay to a hotel who thinks it's alright to give guests a room with a broken sink.

Great value for the weekend city break. Gorgeous clean modern room. King size bed with crisp clean linen and large spotless bathroom. Everything we needed was at hand and a short walk along the road to the City Centre. Will definitely be back.
