The drawback to having a hotel room in the midst of the pub scene, is that the pubs empty out at 3AM -- and you'll be reminded of this as the revelers stagger home. For some reason, the windows fit poorly and so didn't keep out much of the noise. To top it off, our room faced Trongate, where buses run until 12:30 AM and trucks run all night. And we had asked for a quiet room! On the plus side, the hotel offered to switch our room, but there wasn't much selection left.
The suite itself was OK -- the furniture stylish, but not particularly comfortable. Having a fridge is nice -- there's a Tesco Express a few blocks away to buy groceries at. But, all in all, I wouldn't come back.
