“Another Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

I attended an industry function this week at The Hilton and took the opportunity to stay there as opposed to any other location. I cheked in early afternoon so went to the Connich Bar which had a few people in. I enjoyed a glass of wine and delioecious smoked salmon sandwiches. More than enough and probably too much! The service here was efficient friendly and quick. Just what was need. My room was on the 13th floor facing down the river. It always amazes me how the noise of the traffic below cannot be heard. The room was as you would expect; spacious, spotlessly clean and full amenities. The shower has excellent power and the TV Channels all work. I attended a function in the evening in the main ballroom where the food was top class and the staff top of their game. The breakfast was the usual high standard with a wide range catering for tastes. It was as they say "great to be back"

Room Tip: Any room. I stayed on the 13th facing west (down the river)

I stayed here only one night, but it was a nice comfortable stay. My room was spacious and clean the shower was good, and the bed was soft.
Upon arrival i was shown to a room that had not been serviced, but the staff were very helpful, and immediately brought me up a new room key.
I've never had a problem with a Hilton hotel, they're all to a great standard. This was no exception.

The hotel had welcoming reception, good rooms, good breakfast, and helpful staff (especially concierge).

But the last 300 yards arriving by car, bus, or walking from each direction is quite challenging unless you know the correct paths through what appears to be alley and without adequate signage. My suggestions are (1) the hotel needs to provide thorough guidance on their website including a specific driving/walking map of the immediate area, and (2) new visitors should phone ahead and ask for specific driving & walking instructions.

This hotel is near enough to central city, is located only one block from a bus stop (we used the Hop-on-Hop-off), and close enough to a couple of pubs and small restaurants. It is also adjacent to M8/A804, but the noise from traffic did not bother us even in a room facing the motorway.

We liked the hotel overall, but access needs to be improved and good signage installed.

I stay regularly at the Hilton in Glasgow but this may change soon. I can't believe that they think it is acceptable to charge £14.95 for 24 hours of WIFI this is a rip off and I am looking for somewhere else to take my business. Also they don't provide biscuits in the room which for the amount they charge wouldn't break their piggy bank - all other Hilton hotels that I stay in do. On the plus side the rooms are nice and welcoming. The staff on Reception and at breakfast are very friendly and welcoming.

Typical Hilton hotel, good rooms, good breakfast - won't blow you away with style but it does what it says on the tin. Rooms are generous and despite being close to the motorway you can't hear any of the traffic which is a plus.

Only real problem is the location, this hotel is not convenient unless you have a car, plan to use taxis or know the city quite well. I lived in Glasgow for 25 years so know the city really well but walking to this hotel from the city centre is a challenge, lots of little back streets which are deserted at night except for the cars on the road, not very welcoming and actually quite off putting. If this had better pedestrian links to the city centre it would be a winner!

Stayed here recently and must comment on the very high standard of the hotel which strikes you on arrival. Check in was painless with unbelievably friendly and helpful staff.

The room was really well appointed and spotlessly clean and we enjoyed a lovely evening meal in the restaurant. The Bar staff were very attentive and enjoyed a great chat with one of the lads about football!! Nice to see staff who are never too busy to pass the time away with their customers
