I stayed at this hotel every week for about 6 months. They have done a lot of refurbishment: each floor has its own theme and the rooms on that floor tend to have similar decor. I particularly like the 2nd and 3rd floor, but the 6th floor is quite quirky too.
The staff are generally quite polite and helpful, the breakfast buffet is great value, especially if you can get it included in your room rate.
The location is very good - there's the more colourful side of life immediately around the hotel, but it's very tame. It's a very short walk to the banks of the Clyde and it's a great walk or run along the riverside, especially in the summer.
The gym downstairs is great - a good sized, well-equipped one, with helpful staff, and complimentary to guests at the hotel.
Wi-fi can be patchy, but accessing via the fixed network is easy (and both free!).
Watch out for the glass sided lifts (elevators) if you are on the higher floors and suffer from vertigo...
One minor issue is that the beds are quite firm. I like soft, squishy beds.
