This would not have been my first choice of hotel to stay in, I'll be honest. This is mainly due to location - there are closer hotels to where I conduct my business trips in Glasgow. But my HR people stuck me here and I was dismayed at first.
However, my disappointment soon disappeared. With polite and friendly staff, a cosy room, spacious bathroom and free wifi (always a bonus, am I right?), I was in my element.
I like my hotels to have a gym so I can pound the treadmill at night, but this hotel is a stone's throw from the lovely Kelvin Grove Park so it was trainers on and off I go, running along the picturesque Kelvin River. The lack of gym (although there's a deal with a nearby one you can take advantage of for a fiver) was soon forgotten.
There's plenty of bars and restaurants in easy walking distance, and Buchanan Street's shopping nerve centre isn't that far away either.
There was a problem with the electricity in my room one night. Fearing hours of waiting, I waited in the lounge with a cuppa. The staff ensured it was a priority to fix and I was back in my room before I'd finished my brew.
I'll be telling my HR people to book me back in the Best Western Glasgow City Hotel in future.
