“Superb Hotel”
Reviewed 29 July 2009

We stayed here in May 09 of our honeymoon, and they granted us every courtesy. The view was excellent, the food marvelous, the staff excellent. We weren't keen to go out at night, but there was no need.

The service was great; the staff on reception were very friendly and helpful. Check in and out was smooth and quick.

The room was really comfortable and clean and just what I wanted for a comfortable night's sleep. Everything very high standard but relaxed.

The hotel has it's own secure underground car park (think it was £10 for the night which was fine). Situated in the centre of town, it's a short walk from Sauchiehall Street and the centre of town and a short taxi ride from the SECC,

Overall I had a very comfortable and realxing stay.

Very nice hotel. Our room was on 17th floor with queensize bed and sofa bed. Even with sofa bed made up the room was still a decent size. Mini bar expensive as is usual in most hotels. Pool open in evening and was never crowded. There is also sauna, steam room and gym. Breakfast lovely as was evening meal in restaurant. Staff very friendly and helpful. 10 mins walk to shops and taxis always outside hotel. Parking under hotel at £10 a night.

We stayed there on the occasion of my son's graduation and were so disappointed. There was conflicting info on website about smoking/non smoking rooms so i booked by telephone and was told all rooms in the hotel were non smoking, but when we arrived to check in there were only non smoking rooms left. The desk clerk couldn't have cared less and more or less told us we could take it or leave it. The rooms were stinking of cigarette smoke and so were we by the next morning. I have no idea where the hotel gets it's five stars. I have had better rooms in travel inns. The lobby is nothing special, the room was basic with few facilities We had a meal in Cameron's restaurant and it was not bad, apart from the fact that we had to send one of the steaks back as it was not cooked as expected. There was no atmosphere in the bar and the whole hotel lacked the five star label.We wrote to the general manager to complain and we got a standard letter apologising and offering a room upgrade the next time we stay there. We will not be taking him up on his offer as i would not stay in a hilton hotel anywhere again.

We stayed here on a Sunday evening in July 09 in a Queen room on the 19th floor, classed as Executive, which gave us access to the Executive Lounge.

Good points - room was clean and tidy, nice view, everything worked ok. Reception staff seemed friendly enough. Used the pool and jacuzzi etc and they were ok. We didn't arrive until after 7pm but the pool was still open until 10.00pm, which was a blessing as some places shut at 8. Breakfast was good, lots of choice. (Tip - use the Exec Lounge to avoid the crowd - if you are booked in an exec room). Has its own car park under the hotel.

Downside: Bar prices - cheapest glass of wine was over 6 quid!!! Pint was £4.25. Outrageous. Car park costs £10 per night. Location - walking into the main city centre in the late evening felt a little intimidating due to the hotel's location, yet its too short to pay for a taxi.
Exec Lounge closed at 8pm on Saturday & Sunday.

I would defn recommend this hotel for a luxury stay in Glasgow. Prompt checkin, friendly service, large room, bathroom had shower and bath, great breakfast selection and loved the leisure facilities- we used the gym, pool and spa during our stay. A 10 min walk to Buchanan street or there is a taxi rank outside the front door. Concierge service was quick and very helpful.

The only downside - the mini bar and room service very expensive.

We loved this Hilton and will defn be back. We got a great deal on hotels.com.

Booked this on lastminute.com, and the price seemed reasonable when compared with other lesser hotels.

Room was a good size. There was an adjoining door to the next room which was thankfully locked. Bathroom had a slightly fiddly mixer tap contraption on the bath/shower.

Minibar is very expensive (see photo), e.g. £4.35 for some chocolate raisins or £2.75 for a can of Coke. Be warned it's also triggered just by lifting any item.

Checked in fairly quickly in the afternoon. Went down to the gym/pool for a quick swim, but no one was on the desk. Waited around for a couple of minutes but nobody showed. Unfortunately I didn't have time to wait any longer and had to go without a swim.

Went down again on the Sunday morning. The gym is a decent size, about 6 treadmills, a few cross trainers and exercise bikes. Several resistance machines and free weights, etc. The pool is a decent length, maybe slightly cold for some.
For some reason the jacuzzi wasn't in use (despite it still being on its timer). To stop people going in, the leisure attendant had just put a plastic chair on the top step into the jacuzzi, which not everyone understood (i.e. they removed the chair and jumped in, until the attendant came and asked them to leave the jacuzzi). Perhaps an explanatory sign might have worked better.
The sauna and steam room were also good.

If you are walking here from the city centre, I'd recommend coming along St Vincent Street, then turn left when you reach the motorway. That's probably the most direct route without having to go up too much hills. It's probably also simplest, as the road layout there is a bit confusing.

I didn't have breakfast or any other food at the hotel, so no comment other than to say Glasgow has many fine cafes and restaurants.
