We stayed in the Marriot for the first time on the 19th and 20th November as a base for some Christmas shopping,eating out and cinema going.We stayed in a double room with a king size bed,the room was tastefully decorated,comfortable bed and a large flat screen tv.The bathroom was immaculate with a power shower.Staff were always very pleasant and eager to help with any questions we had .We got a good deal through Trivago £166 for 2 nights BandB.The hotel was only a 10min walk from the city centre.My only 2 moans were the fact that your charged £8 a day for parking on their own ground and breakfast on the 2nd day felt as if some of the cooked items(tattie scones,black pudding)had sitting to long,Would definately stay again.

Recently had the pleasure of staying here for two nights over a weekend. The rooms are very spacious, twin rooms having two double beds as you'd get in the US. The beds are possibly the most comfortable I've experienced in a hotel. Room was quiet despite being next to the lifts and the air con worked well.

Breakfast was excellent! Large choice of hot and cold items including some nice Scottish touches like haggis and tatty scones. Plus the restaurant is also very bright and modern. There was no queue either morning, which being a weekend was great!

Location was great, easy 10 minute walk to Central station and also very handy for the west end.

Service from the staff was also excellent.

Will definitely stay here again if we return to Glasgow, which I'm sure we will!

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.
