Accommodaiton - Finnieston Area of Argyle Street

Would like to spend an evening sampling the Food and Bar offerings in the Finnieston Area of Argyle Street in August this year.

Would like to stay at either the Hilton Garden Inn or Hilton Glasgow.

Is the walk from these hotels :-

1. Relatively Easy

2. Safe at night.

If these hotels are a crazy decision can anyone suggest alternate accommodation that offers car parking.

Thanks

Brad

If the Hilton brand is your thing look at the Hilton Grosvenor in the west end.

Jump a taxi to Finnieston, a short ride or about a twenty minute walk.

No problems with safety other than that which you would expect in any city anywhere

All the Hiltons will involve a walk or taxi to the Finnieston Strip, both the ones you mention though are probably slightly nearer the the Grosvener, about 10-12 mins to the start of the Strip.

If you are not fussed about the Hilton then there are approx 10 hotel/guest houses one street back (100 yds) on Sauchiehall St, Lorne Hotel, Devoncove Hotel, Argyle Hotel amongst others, some have Parking but cheap or free overnight street parking available in the streets around Kelvingrove Park.

The Hilton at the squinty bridge on the Clyde is about five mins walk from the argyle street side it finnieston. I lived there for years and no issues with safety, great place to visit
