After staying at Radisson Blu hotels in both Iceland and Edinburgh this was by far may favorite of the three. The accommodations were top notch and the staff was very personable and efficient. My one complaint would be that while we were visiting it was very hot outside and the air conditioners in the rooms were having a hard time keeping everything cool. It took almost a full 8 hours after arriving for our room to cool to a comfortable level. I had family staying in two other rooms on the same floor who had the same issue. It doesn't help that whenever the rooms were cleaned for the day the staff turned off the air so you had to start the cooling process anew when arriving back after a day of sight seeing. However, this was more than made up for by the rooms and the overall hotel.
The upshot to this was that we spent a good deal of time in the lobby bar and were served by a great bartender named Matt. Matt was very friendly and you could clearly tell he had a passion for the drinks he was serving. Ask him to make you something and it will be great. It is always nice to be able to talk to someone from the area learn the things the guide books won't tell you.
I also loved the elevator system here and that many of the staff at the front desk wore kilts. It is also very convenient that the hop on/ hop off tour bus stops directly in front of the hotel. Ask the concierge and they can get you coupons for a discount. It would be nice if there was more than one computer to print boarding passes from as it always seemed it was occupied.
I only spent a little bit of time in Glasgow and I am already wanting to go visit again and stay at this hotel.
