First time staying in this hotel in late 2012 and cannot fault our stay at all. Every staff member we came across was friendly, the service was great and we had an excellent view from our room. Will definitely return in the future.

My wife and I stayed here after returning from holiday and before heading home.

Check in was friendly and quick and our room on the 11th floor had an excellent view over the river.

We ate in the restaurant and, although disappointed that the carvery wasn't operating, had a very nice meal at a reasonable rate.

I really like staying at the Crowne Plaza hotels; as you know what you are getting for your money; it is pretty much the same everywhere:
great welcome and friendly staff.
Comfortable rooms: clean and with all the amenities necessary
This hotel in particular may be a bit away from the city center but it sure has several other advantages: it is nicely located along the river, it is quiet and if you are staying in towns for a concert; well it is just around the corner....
Last stay was this summer and the climate control of the hotel didnot work properly, so the rooms were very warm and it was rather uncomfortable to sleep. However the hotel provided me with a fan ....

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I’m pleased to read that our hotel impressed you and you found us to be comfortable with great amenities. As you quite correctly state, we may not be in the City Centre but the views are great and we have a taxi rank outside along the front door and there is a train station at the SECC. I hope to welcome you back to the hotel soon.

this was our 3rd visit to the Crowne Plaza as it is so convenient for the Clyde Auditorium events. my daughter who is disabled with MS and I had interconnecting rooms. mine was excellently fitted out but her disabled room needs rails at suitable places along the bedroom walls as there are none at present; the bathroom ones could be augmented by another two. this is really important if disabled guest can walk but is unsteady. additional equipment we were offered and accepted on check-in arrived very promptly and was useful. housekeeping, dining room and reception staff were extremely helpful; buffet breakfast very good indeed and i will certainly recommend the hotel to friends, and return there myself. another really enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the Clyde.

I stayed one night with business. The staff, rooms and facilities in the hotel were all excellent. The bar and restaurant offer an extensive menu of both food and drink and the leisure facilities are second to none. My double room with breakfast cost £89 mid-week. I really could not fault the hotel. If you want somewhere comfortable to stay in Glasgow you will be hard pushed to find somewhere better.

Room Tip: Hotel is in a quiet area, a higher room gives excellent views.

Just had an amazing night at the Crowne Plaza Glasgow Hogmanay gala ball with the family. The function room was very impressive and the entertainment was fantastic with a troupe of pipers welcoming in the new year! The snow Machine and never ending confetti drops was really effective too!
The food was the best I have had in terms of volume banqueting, hot, good quality and perfectly presented. There really isn't anywhere that does it so well. Great start to 2013 and big thank you to all the staff who made it so special - well done Crowne Plaza Glasgow!
