I just returned to the US after spending seven days in Glasgow. The Argyll Hotel was my home for the entire visit. I arrived VERY early in the morning, and the staff was more than willing to store my luggage until check-in time, and in fact they said they would have my room ready early since they knew I'd been flying all night and might want to take a nap. The hotel is located on Sauchiehall Street, and is quaint, lovely and thoroughly Scottish. Each room features a different Scottish tartan. My room was decorated with the Scottish National tartan (lots of green and red). As a woman travelling alone, my safety and security were a concern, but I never once felt a concern at The Argyll. There was always staff manning the reception desk, and my room had good locks. My room was on the second floor, facing Sauchiehall St. It's a busy street, but I didn't notice any extra irritation caused by busses or cars going up and down the street. The Argyll offers a FULL breakfast every morning - eggs, sausage, bacon, toast, cereal, fruit, juices and more!! Linda, the waitress who was on duty every day I was there, was so nice, friendly and helpful. She made it her duty to make sure all of my needs were met, and my stomach was full went I left each day for sightseeing. I met wonderful Glaswegians at The Snaffle Bit, next door. They immediately welcomed me. Their haggis and cheese panini was delicious. I would NOT hesitate to recommend the Argyll Hotel to anyone going to Glasgow. It's a very short walk to the Kelvingrove Museum, the University of Glasgow, the Hunterian Museum, and the Botanical Gardens. And the Glasgow City Bus tour stops just a few steps from The Argyll. The bus tour is cheap and an EXCELLENT way to get an overview of Glasgow in a 1 hr. 45 min. narrated tour.
