I stayed two nights on business, having stayed at the nearby Crowne Plaza previously.
The City Inn is the one I would return to - it's modern with excellent facilties and I particularly liked the Imac computer in the room and free Wifi, also appreciated the White Company bathroom goodies.
My only gripes were a couple of minor things in the restaurant. On the whole, breakfast was excellent but they didn't have any vegetarian sausages (but the bubble and squeak was a reasonable substitute, and, unlike many hotels, they had proper decaff coffee rather than instant). In the evening, I had to send my pudding back - it was a tart, and the pastry on the bottom was so hard I couldn't even cut it with a knife. They apologised and took more than the cost of the pudding off the bill though.
You have complementary use of Greens leisure club just up the road - I went for a swim there - and/or use of the hotel's fitness suite which I didn't try.
The location on the banks of the Clyde is beautiful, and it would be pleasant to stay there at a warmer time of year so that you could sit outside on the City Cafe terrace.
