I normally don't write reviews, when I do it's really good or, in this sad case - horrible-. The Bad : I am Platinum for life, stayed in hundreds of Marriott Properties around the world, This has made my list of 5 worst on earth. This property needs it's flag pulled or a total renovation yesterday. Are you listening Marriott Corporate? Please take a look at this place and -PLEASE- don't just renovate the lobby, we are way past that here. This property has missed the last 3 Marriott brand makeovers and now sits as a living memorial to early 1980's. Rooms are matchboxes and in absolutely terrible shape. The hallways and public areas were great when Def Leppard was #1 on the chart. The large gym has wall to wall carpeting and smells. At present, the AC and Heat have been broke for 2 days now - in the entire building. Somehow Marriott has missed its inspection of this place. It's sad, tired, terrible bordering on gross and outdated. Serious letdown. The Good - the staff is absolutely outstanding (maids, maintenance, bar and front desk). I truly feel bad for them having to work in this hellish property. Bar food is good. Ask staff for recommendations they are honest.

We often use this hotel for our internal company meetings, therefore a large number of us stay here fairly regularly. The staff are very friendly, courteous and helpful...as one would expect from a Marriott, however the hotel itself hasn't changed much at all in the 15 years I've been going. It feels very dated, especially compared to other Marriotts. The rooms feel like 5* rooms from the 80s. Location is excellent.

Spent a cold Glasgow weekend here with the family. Nicely located on Argyle street with a short walk into the centres bars, restaurants and clubs. Public areas are nice and the bar has a laid back vibe. We used the pool, sauna and steam room a couple of times and found it spacious and comfortable. Our room was a bit tired but clean and large. Lots of parking and a great location for visiting the city.

Stayed at the Marriott for one night as it’s downtown and near meeting area. Excellent location but a very tired hotel if I compared to other Marriotts I have stayed at. However the staff make up for any building issues and they are friendly and helpful from the front desk staff to the restaurant, bar and cleaning staff. Beds are a bit hard for my liking but for overnight you will have everything you need. I chose to run inside on the treadmill this time and other then the long walk to the gym it’s will equipped with loads of cardio equipment and weights. To find the gym you need to follow the signs and continue to basement then go back up to find entrance. This is because I believe gym has outside memberships. Ate at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast which were both delicious with many options on the breakfast buffet. Great beer selection at bar with lots of seating . Not sure if I would return but it’s an option as price is fantastic.

A night's DBB in this welcoming, relaxing airport hotel. Monika , Josh, Diego and the lovely young lady on reception, didn't get her name made us so welcome. Our deluxe room was indeed deluxe. It goes to show that good customer service and a friendly attitude can really make a difference. Thank you.

Stayed for a long weekend, great value for money and only a 5 minute walk to Central station and surrounding restaurants. The room was very clean and with excellent lighting to apply make-up (according to my wife!). They even provide cups for beverages "to go". The breakfast was amazing with such a wide range of choices and all the food was delicious. We also had a bar meal one night which was also very enjoyable. The staff were wonderful. This is the only place we stay when we visit Glasgow. The only criticism I would have is that they apply a service charge of 12.5% for meals (not breakfast) although it is deemed voluntary.

Stayed 1 night on Thursday 5th April with my 8 year old son, unfortunately his Dad had to work. Arrived at the hotel around 1pm and room was available. Received an upgrade to the executive rooms on the 11th floor with lounge access. Room was smaller than a standard room but fine for 2, it was very warm despite having the air conditioning on all night with the temp set at 5c. Used the lounge on the 12th floor for access to Coke, biscuits and nibbles for my son and I managed a wine. Breakfast was amazing as usual and it was a delight to see Muriel still there as she's amazing.

Yes it was a voucher deal but one of the poorest value for money that we have been on. Staff all pleasant but no robes or slippers.. long walk to changing rooms... pool side was chilly in a cold day. Steam room the best. Treatments had were facial and a massage. Both poor. We could tell therapists not very experienced.... Waiting area was not private and all you had were towels on top of wet swimwear... no water offered after treatment... would not recommend.

Great for a city break. Pleasant staff throughout the hotel. Room was clean and comfortable and the food was good. We had an evening meal which was excellent and the breakfast had lots of choice. Definitely worth a return trip.

I travelled to Glasgow from Newcastle as a group of 15 to celebrate a hen party. Check in was smooth and we were all placed within a few rooms of each other which was great. Once in the allocated rooms and having unpacked I then noticed we were without our room mirror. I called reception who could only move us to a different room rather than fix the problem. As we’d unpacked this wasn’t something we were willing to do however in future I’d suggest you make guests aware of any fault prior to going to the room. Once we had freshened up we all gathered in reception where the lovely Amy called us all taxi’s to take us into the city centre, these were around £5-£6 per cab. The beds are not double but more 3/4 therefore two adults sharing can be a little snug. There are only two towels in the bathroom however located in the chest of drawers are two sets of spares. The tea making facilities were great and the maids were very accommodating in providing extra milk, tea etc. The location of the hotel is great, only a 15 minute walk to the city centre with a Wetherspoons on the way for a pit stop. I would definitely recommend this hotel and should I come back to Glasgow I’d certainly stay at the Marriott again.
