We've stayed at this hotel under all of it's guises, City Hotel, Mint Hotel and now Hilton Garden Hotel. It's always a pleasurable experience staying here. Nothing is a problem to the staff. I take the kids to various events at the SECC and it is not possible to book 1 adult and 2 children via their website. I usually just call in advance to make sure their policy hasn't changed but they always tell me to book 1 adult and 1 child and write in the extra requirements section that a second child will be staying and they sort the rest out. They usually ask if we would like an extra bed placed in the room but to be honest the large queen bed is more than adequate for us. Their beds are tall and comfortable just as a good hotel should be, with lovely fresh cotton sheets and we always get great nights sleep here. The rooms aren't huge nor luxurious but they are bright and well equipped. There's the iMac for starters, that keeps the kids entertained. The room has TV, fridge and Tea & coffee making facilities. The rooms are always spotlessly clean too. The bathroom is bright, very well lit, clean and stocked with toiletries.
The hotel is situated just a stones throw from the SECC and the Hydro so it has a great location. It has lovely views of the Clyde from the riverside rooms too. The staff are polite and helpful.
I've read a few negative reviews regarding their breakfast but for us, it's always the perfect ending to our stay at the Hilton. The food is cooked in small batches so it isn't sitting around for a long time, There is a choice of cooked food, cereals, toast, pastries and the kid's favourite - the waffle machine! They love making their own waffles. There are fresh fruit juices, tea and coffee. Yes as others have mentioned it can get busy in the dining room especially the morning after an event at the SECC but you always get served and they never rush you to leave, I don't see what the problem is with being busy, surely that's a good sign?
We will be back in December and are looking forward to it.
