Two night stay. Arrived on the Tuesday, efficient check in, as you would expect. £5 per night car par charge though. 4th floor room which overlooked the river and bridge. Weather dull, river dull but out with hotel remit.
Room quite small but ok. Clean and crisp, no complaints other than the big red wine stain at the side of the bed. Facilities ok but hair drier rubbish. Room fitted with an I-Mac so no tv. Not brilliant if you want to watch a movie in bed but very modern if that's what floats your boat.
The bed was too hard for my liking but I suspect that's a Hilton standard. The air conditioning was very loud and was promptly switched off, it's Scotland, open the window instead! (They do open).
The breakfast was buffet style. It was pretty good. All the staples and a surprise guest on the plate-haggis. It wasn't too spicy so a good addition to breakfast.
The proximity of the hotel to the Hydro arena is a 2 minute walk, a treat!
Try for a cheap deal for your stay though as £128 per night plus breakfast is a bit pricy on top of a concert ticket.
