Glasgow is a city that really has it all. Amid its enticing hodge-podge of Victorian and Art Nouveau architecture, you’ll find world-class museums, historical wonders, inviting art galleries and a vibrant music scene. Voted the “world’s friendliest city” by Rough Guides readers, Glasgow is as much about its people as it is its institutions, making it a unique cultural hub with a distinct vibe. With a stay at Radisson Blu Glasgow, you’ll be in the midst of it all, right next to the city’s Central Station.
Radisson Blu Glasgow offers a contemporary respite from the city’s buzz and is home to a go-to restaurant, Collage. Roy Ackerman’s concept has been brought to life here in the form of an eclectic menu that can be enjoyed alongside walls filled with Sir Peter Blake artwork. After a fine-dining experience, head up to your room for a quiet night in with a film, all set to the backdrop of the city’s lights as they twinkle through the floor-to-ceiling window.
Rooms are stylish and modern, with floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of light and allow for wonderful views over the city. Standard rooms are 291 square feet in size and come with one double or two twin beds. Business Class rooms are the same size, but offer added perks, like a daily newspaper.
Collage Restaurant, as the name suggests, serves a varied tapestry of dishes within an interior concept specially designed by Roy Ackerman, CBE. Enjoy British classics and Mediterranean dishes alongside a well-curated wine list, within the impressive shadow of Sir Peter Blake’s artwork. Collage Corner Bar is a stylish space, with large windows that allow for people-watching over a coffee, while Grahamston at The Atrium is a concept bar with a menu of premium and exotic spirits, world-class whiskeys and quality wines. Breakfast is served buffet style, with Continental, European and American options all on offer.
Radisson Blu Glasgow is located right next to the city’s main railway station, in the International Financial Services District. Glasgow airport is just seven miles away, and there’s an airport bus that stops just feet from the hotel. Trains to Edinburgh leave Central Station every 15 minutes during peak hours, or every 30 minutes during off-peak hours, and take 40 minutes. Both the M8 and M74 motorways are within easy reach.
How to Get There
Have just come back from 5 nights here, lovely hotel perfectly situated. The staff are a welcoming, friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
Nice large executive room, quiet, clean, with complimentary water available everyday.
Will definitely be back and will not hesitate to book again.
Thank you for making a long hard working week away a pleasure.
I’ve had two recent stays here and have to say, both have been brilliant. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the hotels itself is stunning the moment you walk in. Both rooms I’ve had have been really nice, modern and bright. Loads of room and everything you could possibly need in it. Beds were extremely comfortable and I got a really good nights sleep! I didn’t get a chance to try out breakfast as we left late, parking is £15 for the night, make sure to tell reception and get a pass otherwise you’ll be stung the NCP £24 rate!!
All in all a really good couple of stays and with such a great location I will definitely be back.
Visited with my partner through an Itison gift we got for Christmas. Beautiful entrance and lovely welcome, check in smooth and efficient, staff warm and friendly in the welcome. Room was fine, good size, comfy bed and big enough bathroom, only slight fault which is minor was the room woodwork had some chips and wallpaper had a bit of patch repair so a bit of tlc needed but didn’t distract from our stay. Hotel bar was beautiful with beautiful decor, good atmosphere and staff again warm and friendly with good selection of drinks. Didn’t have an evening meal or use facilities but food looked good! Good breakfast and again great welcome as you enter from the staff, good selection of cooked, fruit,cereals,cold meats and drinks. You also get to choice from menu on table as well which gave different cooked options. Good hotel and would stay again.
Had a really lovely stay here, the room was clean, great fluffy towels and the bed was really comfortable. We arrived early and were checked in straight away. All the staff were friendly and helpful, especially the lady on reception. It’s in a great location for shops, bars and restaurants. Looking forward to my next visit.
We stayed here for two of three days in mid October when another hotel did not work out for us. I went to the hotel personally to see some available rooms and inspect them and initially had a hard time talking the front desk personnel into letting me do that. They finally relented and I finally saw two rooms and talked with a bellman about which rooms would be best for us as my wife is very sensitive to noise. The bellman advised back or inside of building and upper floor as opposed to lower floor and front of building do to street noise and band playing on some nights. I inquired of the front desk personnel about best rates and was quoted an outrageous 265 pounds per night and observed that I had checked on line booking sites and could do much better there and told him the price through TripAdvisor and he told me the rate he quoted me was the best he could give me and that I should book the room on line instead of through them. I did so and when we came back I requested a high floor on the inside of the building away from the street and advised them of my wife’s sensitivity to noise. They placed us in a third floor room on the back of the building directly over the nightclub. We had trouble sleeping the first night as the noise was deafening and the bass travelled right up through the floor into our room. It was very bad for me and I’m virtually deaf with my hearing aids out so I can only imagine how bad it was for my wife who possesses acute hearing. I called down to complain about the room they had given us and the noise and was told they would switch our room for us but my wife was reluctant to do that as we had already changed hotels that day and were already settled into the room. As we were told the band would stop playing at midnight we elected to keep the room but we should never have been assigned that one in the first place! They have bottles of still and bubbling water than you can take up to your room and we did so on the first day and I went back to do so on the second day and was confronted by a rude and insulting employee dressed in Indian garb who did not want me to take the bottles of water back to the room and acted as if he was afraid we wanted to steal the bottles which were fairly heavy and offered to put the water into plastic containers for us instead. I was put off by his repeated harassments and finally dismissed him telling him I was taking them back to the room as I had the preceding day and that housekeeping had not even picked up the bottles from the preceding day when they had made up the room earlier in the day. The rooms were quite nice and spacious with a nice queen bed and nice marble bathrooms and free cookies and tea and a mini refrigerator. Accommodations I would rate a five stars and location is great next to Central rail station but customer service is not what it should be for such a nice facility and should be rated two stars as not even what I would expect as average and below five of the seven hotels we stayed at on this trip and only better than one which provided the worst customer service we have ever received. Advise: book on line rather than through the hotel as it will likely save you considerably and make sure your room is what you expect and need before settling in. They did have complimentary blu alcoholic drinks in the lobby during a happy hour the first night we stayed there and big complimentary umbrellas that are available for guests if it is raining as well as complimentary still and bubbling dispensers of water in the lobby that can be taken back to the room that keep the water cold and bubbly and nice ample storage place for clothes and luggage!
