Stayed in the Glasgow Hilton Grosvenor over the Easter weekend. Really comfortable hotel and very friendly staff. I stayed in one of the newly redecorated rooms. I was on a relaxing break so was glad to have a big, comfy bed, a decent tv, and free newspapers.
One downside is that the hotel is entered via a dark, back door type entrance and not via the beautiful facade seen in the advertising. It's a clean and modern enough entrance but it's such a shame they don't maximize the front facade as you don't get the feeling of arriving at, or staying, in a grand hotel.
On the plus side the rooms are comfortable (luxurious), breakfast delicious and the staff very approachable and friendly. The hotel has been tastefully decorated and feels contemporary inside. The location is ideal for the botanics, the university, the bus tour and the west end shops/restaurants. It's also fairly close to the underground.
If you're flying back after your break, ask the hotel staff to order your taxi back to Glasgow Airport - it was less than half the price of the cab we hired from the airport to the hotel. They must have an agreement with a local cab firm.
Restaurants in the west end and Glasgow on the whole close early compared to London etc.(last orders 9pm ish). Shops closed at 5.30pm even on the weekend!
Overall Glasgow is a fantastic city and the Grosvenor a great hotel!
