Where do we start? I don't know where some of Ethernet other reviewers are used to staying, but the Glasgow marriott was dreadful.
Check in- receptionist asks what sort of room do you want? A large quiet one I ask for, she gives me one overlooking the lifts & so small that I couldn't walk round the room without bumping into things.
Minibar? Screwed shut ! Decor? Dated and grubby.
I did raise it with reception to general indifference.
Every morning I woke at 5 as the room was so cold, the AC was too loud to have on whilst you sleep and seemed to have a whole new approach to climate control - none!
Breakfast was fine, you could even have whisky on your porridge if that's your bag. We were on a course and so were stuck there for lunch and dinner- the food at both was no-where near what you would expect from a 4 star hotel, it was no surprise that the restaurants was empty. It was so bad we managed to get approval from our company to go out for dinner despite them having paid for full board already.
The bar - managed the old trick of charging for drinks ordered but not poured and one colleague found a £24 misc charge on her bill. On the final day, lunch was so unappetising that I just gave up and went to the airport - it's gotta be bad if an airport weatherspoons is a more attractive option!
Checking out was probably the best experience of the 4 days there. All in all, I would never stay there again, and I am a Marriott gold member.
