Wow this room was elegant. In room the fridge were FREE ( !!) waters, chocolate bars, and chips. So impressed. I've been to hotels where they booby-trapped their fridges so if you even MOVE anything around, they automatically charge you a mini-bar usage fee!
The staff was helpful and friendly and they kept a bowl of fruit on top of the check-in counter for guests. This hotel is about 3 blocks to the Central Railway station and there were coffee shops and eateries right there. Buchanan Street was also a right there with MANY more shops. I didn't realize how close we were to everything until we started walking around.
The only complaint was that the shower did not drain well, but otherwise was fantastic with great water pressure. The hotel was stocked with Aveda products. The bed was SO comfortable and the pillows were great. The coffee/tea set up was nice too!
When we arrived at the airport, we went right to the information desk in the terminal just to confirm where to pick up the 500 Glasgow Shuttle to the city center. Indeed, it was right out front. I believe you can buy the tickets for this bus at the info desk as well as on the bus. It took about 15 minutes to get into town. You need to get off at the Bothwell St./ (Central Station) stop. The first stop JUST says Bothwell St. on the sign at the bus stand and we SHOULD have gotten off here. Instead, I focused on the Central Station part of it and got off at the next stop and then we had to walk BACK to the hotel. Get yourself a good map and it will be clearer ---I didn't even have a map...poor planning on my part.
I highly recommend staying at this hotel.
Oh, and there is a Café Nero down the street RIGHT across from the train station --- as you can see from my picture. It was easy and affordable to have breakfast there. We had lunch across that street at Bella Italia - they had lunch deals for 9pounds!
