This is an older feeling hotel. The brick outside kinda threw me off. But when I entered the hotel loby, it was very nice.

Price. Quite reasonable for a Marriott hotel.

Rooms. Very clean, and comfortable beds.

Staff. The bell hops were fantastic. I was going to a football game there and the bell hop supported the team I was seeing and gave me the low down on everything. Made my first football game a great experience.

Food at the hotel. A little pricey, but the fish and chips were great.

Location. You are a five block walk from fantastic shopping, and major train station to get you to the next place.

Will stay again if I come back.

Booked in to Marriott for one night on business. Rooms are comfortable but pillows not particualrly so. Disappointed with the charges for wi-fi and thought the snacks in the bar downstairs we expensve for what they were. No problem with the quality though, service was really good, staff were friendly and responsive.

The hotel is in a resonable position with easy access to the city. Plenty of taxis outside. I would use again for business but not otherwise.

Room Tip: All seem pretty good, no real views to speak of as in business district and adjacent to motorway.

I stayed at Marriott previously and I am very much impressed by the service of the hotel. I stayed there for 4 nights and really enjoyed my stay. One thing which i dont like about the hotel was the staff member of the gift shop. He was really very rude and I believe he doesnt have any manner to treat the guest. That thing pissed me off but overall the service, room and the location was top class.

Room Tip: Try to get room near to the elevator as the ice machine is right opposite to the lift.

This hotel was disappointing for a 4 star. The bathroom had a strange, unclean smell. The knob to turn the shower on/off was really stiff and my husband was the only one who could turn the shower off completely. The cold tap for running the bath didn't work. We requested a quiet room and ended up next to the party animals who had invited others to their room. I know the hotel has no control over this but it is very annoying for familes when they get woken up at 1am as someone is locked out of a room and won't give up banging on the door.

The main areas of the hotel and very nice and clean and the staff very polite and helpful. However, the Glasgow hotel was disappointing and we will return to our favourite Marriott in Edinburgh rather than come back here.

Cannot believe that in this day and age Marriott is charging £15 a day for WI-fi access. Macdonalds and many others supply this free. Loyalty programme at least should include this free. Parking also charged @ £8 per day - ridiculous. All in all, staff service very good, but hotel services poor value. Is there a charge for these services in North America? Would that be tolerated? Having stayed in several other hotel chains, Marriott has a significant gap to close.

Just what you would expect from the Marriott chain - a good quality hotel that could be anywhere in the world. Excellent clean and well-furnished room, and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Although the room overlooked the motorway, the room was perfectly soundproofed and the panoramic view was actually quite atmospheric. The staff were friendly but as the hotel was fully booked they were stretched, and service was slow, especially in the restaurant. The only drawback was the soft lighting in the room - perfect for a romantic getaway, but hard to work in. Also, given the price, I think free wifi should be standard nowadays, not charged extra.

My wife and I have just returned from a great weekend in Glasgow. Due to a morning flight from Cardiff we arrived at the hotel approx 12:00 but we were still allowed to check in. Our room was spotlesly clean, a great size with a huge bed! (I requested a high room with a view and we got the 11th floor facing the river). It was very quite considering it was very close to the motorway. There was a large TV, safe, hair dryer, mini bar, kettle, tea/coffee & biscuits. The staff were very helpful and did'nt mind spending time with us advising us of all the tourist sights, bus times etc.
The traditional Scottish Breakfast was excellent including haggis and porridge with whiskey! A huge choice of both hot and cold buffett, fruit, cereals etc and again the staff were fab.
The location of the hotel is approx a 8-10 min walk into the center. If you are driving, it's just off the M8. We took the shuttle bus from the airport which runs evey 15 minutes and stops fairly close by. (£7.50 each open return).
The "hop on-hop off" open top city tour bus also stops very close by. The tour is great value at £10 p.p and is valid for 2 days and covers all the tourist attractions. The hotel also gives you a £1 p.p discount voucher. The new transport museum is a must see but allow plenty of time as you can spend hours in there! (and it's free!)
I have no hesitation in recomending this hotel as the service, faclities, (and breakfast!) were all first class.

Room Tip: If you want a view request for a high floor facing the river.
