Reviewed 3 February 2014 via mobile

Marriott hotels tend to be similar in every city, or country. This property like many others is convenient and well-placed for easy access to city center locations. Rates are good & overall condition better than most, a bit dated but clean and neat.

My room was on the fifth floor and was very quiet despite the busy & noisy motorway nearby. Fixtures and fittings were all in good order and a strong, hot shower started the day perfectly.

I had executive lounge access and could have had breakfast there but I chose the restaurant for its greater variety and higher quality. Free wifi was available throughout the hotel, thanks! Finally, my compliments to the hotel staff - great job folks!!

I stayed for two nights mid Jan; visiting with a friend. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable with a double bed each! The staff were friendly and courteous and went out of their way to rectify the only problem we had.

Sadly on the first night our neighbouring room consisted of a group of cabin crew. In the early hours of the morning they could be heard screaming horrific abuse at each other broken up with occasional drinken laughter together with bizarre banging which went for what felt like hours. Staff could be heard visiting the room to ask them to keep it down several times which they were unable to do. My friend had wisely brought ear plugs but alas, I had sadly not. This was not the hotel's fault and when, the following morning, I went to enquire as to whether the giddy group would be staying again they confirmed not, which was relief enough. The staff then apologised profusely and said that as we had booked via a third party they could not offer recompense (worth noting in general for hotel bookings in case of problems). However we were not looking for this. They asked if there was anything they could do and we requested a later check-out which was arranged. They then offered us complimentary lunch in the hotel bar which we took up the following day and included soft drinks and coffee.

Breakfast on both mornings was excellent - variety and quality. My friend sampled the restaurant on one night which she said was good. Bar service was also good and we were able to use free wi-fi here. I agree with other reviews regarding the hefty cost for in-room wi-fi. Could this be reduced/reviewed?

The sauna and steam room were fine. The pool is a bit shallow and there is no jacuzzi. The spa area looks a little dated but is fine for a quick dip.

We booked via a third party and it worked out approx 41 pp per night inc. breakfast which, considering we each had a double bed, was good value.

Overall we would definitely stay again assuming the price is right. Thank you to all the staff.

Room Tip: Not sure really. Think we just had bad luck with our neighbouring guests. Be assured staff will atte...

This being our first time to Glasgow this hotel met all our needs, close to the shops and close to all the transport systems. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful a credit to them! Our room was very clean but sadly with it being at the back of the hotel it was noisey from motorway traffic avoid rooms at the back if possible . I would like to finish on a positive and say that the standards throughout the hotel was very good and I would certainly stay here again. Hotel not overpriced and value for money

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel away from the motorway

We stayed for 2 nights at a weekend - got a 'deluxe' room on the winter sale B&B rate which seemed good value. I had asked for a quiet room on a high floor which they fulfilled - we were on the 10th floor and although the view over the M8 and the Clyde was not up to much, the room was very quiet. I am not sure what was supposed to be deluxe about the room - I assume it was bigger than standard rooms but it did look very dated - like something from the 80s. It was very clean and everything worked - the king bed was very comfy and, with the blackout curtains, we had two very good nights' sleep. All the staff were superb from the check-in to the concierge and everyone in the breakfast room - really seemed to be enjoying their jobs and were genuinely friendly. Location was great for us - less than 10 mins walk to the centre but also walkable to Kelvingrove and the surrounding area where we headed for dinner on the Saturday night. Breakfast was excellent - huge selection of hot and cold items and all self-service. Would return as long as I got a decent room rate.

Room Tip: Lower level rooms could be noisy due to proximity to M8

Lovely room, surprisingly quiet and very comfy bed. Really good location for getting around central Glasgow . We got there just at the end of breakfast, so didn't have time for a full cooked, but still had plenty of choice of pastries, breads, cereals etc. The lifts were a bit slow when there were a lot of people around e.g. check out time.
