Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Milly45 Excellent Value for Money
I paid in advance for a double room with breakfast included and on arrival when my room was not ready we were instantly upgraded to a suite which left us delighted. The reception staff were lovely and very helpful and the room was beautiful and clean. The facilities were excellent, my daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful swim in the pool and the excellent staff were again welcoming and supplied us with towels. We dined in the restaurant and it was lovely and breakfast was even better. Overall I had an excellent stay and this hotel offers so much more than a budget hotel and I would stay here again and again. So thank you very much.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Audioglow Dont arrive late
We booked a prepaid suite online and advised would be arriving after 10.00pm - when we got there (tired) they couldnt find the booking - glad I had the written confirmation - finally got to the room - a bit disappointing they are a bit "tired" now could do with a refurb. Lounge TV didnt work - broken glass - one of the hottest days of the year (decade) and the air conditioning was turned off - Its the little things that count. On check out had someone elses dinner on my bill (difficult as the restaurant was closed when we arrived). Parking with validation showed £5 on the online booking but was charged £6. TV check out on the 2 nd TV didnt work. Have stayed in many many hotels around the world and this is in the low percentile - shame as it used to be good

My friend and myself came down to Glasgow from The Highlands to see a show in the SECC. I wanted somewhere close by and thats one of the reasons why I booked the Crown Plaza. The other reason was that my friend had never stayed in Glasgow before and with myself being a 'weegie' (Highland nickname for Glaswegian) I wanted to 'push the boat out' and book us into somewhere 'swanky'! and we weren't disappointed at all. We had a very enjoyable time in and around the hotel, the views from our rooms were fabulous (the beautiful River Clyde) the staff in all departments were both friendly and helpful and I had a bit of the 'Glasgow Banter' with them which I really enjoyed. The room was brilliant and there was everything that I needed for a very pleasant and comfortable nights sleep after the show. I would definitely stay here again, when next down in my home town. It's amazing!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Caramac Very comfortable stay
Stayed at Crowne Plazza for close proximity to SECC where we were at Kenny Rogers concert. No taxis to get after show - great. Had a nightcap in the hotel bar - great. Bed - great. Room - great. breakfast - great. A thoroughly enjoyable stay and we will be back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gti211ps Great service, excellent location
Pros: amenities, location - right next to the SECC, great view of the river Clyde, very, very clean, vast choice of tv channels for when you are beat at night. Staff was excellent throughout. Service at the bar likewise.
Cons: Only 2 cons really. One is that I booked this stay via British Airways, and I haven't received any points on my Priority Pass yet.
Wi-fi connection; the hotel only offers one hour of free internet for Priority Club members and then charges per hour. Wi Fi reception in my room was not that great, I couldn't use skype because of the low bandwidth. I find it insulting to charge residents for wifi access when shopping centres in town offer limitless accesss for free even for people who are not actually buying anything. The least Crowne Plaza could have done was to offer an hour per day for free.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by freetalk Crowne Plaza glasgow
The room and hotel were good. But it was all spoiled by very poor restaurant service. Order was slow and partly wrong. We both ordered salad with dressing. Both got salad without dressing, but in any case was dry and did not seem fresh. One salad was largely inedible. Made a formal complaint, in the end to 3 different members of staff. Eventually got an apology but no explanation. Offered free coffee, which was available anyway. No change to the bill. Next morning made formal written complaint at check out. No reply nor acknowledgement of any kind. Do they take complaints seriously?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pster Two night stay
We recently stayed for two nights at the Crowne Plaza. The room was large and I a m jphappy to say they had hot chocolate as a choice in the room as I do not drink tea or coffee. The staff were extremely helpful and the food they serve was great too. I intend going back to Glasgow and intend staying at the plaza again. Could not fault them apart from the fact that you have to pay or wifi connection when even small B & B's these days offer it for free.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by flyfifer Only one complaint.......
We stayed for 2 nights on the second weekend in June - and our only problem was the unbearable heat in the bedroom. Because the windows are sealed units, there was no way of cooling down on the first night. We did have a fan put in the room on the second night, but it just moved the hot air around....
It was a lovely hot & sunny weekend (not the norm in Scotland), but we found it impossible to get a good night's sleep.
Apart from that, we had no complaints - the bedroom was clean, well-furnished and comfy, the bathroom lovely, and the breakfast was one of the best we've had anywhere. Any hotel which can cook a tattie scone to perfection gets my vote - and the Crowne Plaza got it right!
The location couldn't be better for tourists & shoppers alike - right on the river, but not too far from the buzz of the city.
Will definitely be back!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dad23 Average
The reason for the average was firstly the toilet was dirty obviously no toilet brush was used, the duvet was torn and on opening the net curtaining a large cobweb and loads of finger marks and grease on glass desk so unhappy improve that and it would have been a good stay

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AS1963 Edinburgh Rock in Glasgow?
As a Platinum Card Member I obviously stay in Crowne Plaza Hotels regularly as part of the IHG Group. While I don't expect to be treated differently from any other member of the general public, I think the reception staff in the Glasgow Hotel could at least take a bit of interest in their guests. I arrived about 12.15 pm to be told no rooms were available as the hotel was full the previous evening. We had three rooms booked and could not even get into one (I find that hard to believe). I received a letter with vouchers for 20% off meals and drinks - there was already a special breakfast rate for £10 so the 20% as a platinum member was an insult on a £14.95 breakfast! I was then given a "free" gift - a box of Edinburgh Rock... this beggers belief in Glasgow!! Laughable for us as Scots but even more laughable to give this to guests from other countries. Surely something more appropriate could have been given - would be fine it I was staying in Edinburgh. This lets Scotland down. Come on Crowne Plaza management in Glasgow do a bit better than this!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TheWalkers Great location, little spoilers.
Great location as we were going cruise on the Waverley Paddle Steamer.
Could not beleive that parking was not free for residents and cost us £6.00 extra.
Also could not beleive that there was no wi-fi in the bar area again this was chargeable.
Also to many foreign staff going around like little robots no attentiveness.
No table service for the bar area or very short staffed.
Breakfast was excellent and the room were ok but maybe a bit tired.
Overall ok but parking and wifi very greedy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jenno01 Room too hot
This would be a lovely hotel if the room wasn't so hot - not the first time I've experienced it. There's no decent aircon and the windows don't open, so I had an almost sleepless night! I won't be staying again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wildwesterners Please revise parking policy!
This hotel is wonderfully convenient for events at SECC and has great views of the Clyde. Staff were friendly and efficient. We slept well. On these grounds, we'd recommend it. However, three gripes which reduce our rating to a generous "average":
* the breakfast was only OK, with food items not available in the last half hour of service
* the room we stayed in really needed refurbishing, especially the tired bathroom (the pool area was also rather sad)
* the parking charge took us by suprise as we had assumed it was included in the rate for bed and breakfast.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Welcomes1 A poor executive room
I stayed in glasgow over night as it was my sons birthday , this hotel is a bit run down and needs a facelift , my exec room was looking the same way but the real problem was the dried sick on the bathroom wall i found this to be disgusting , Once i had seen the sick i phone reception to get the mess cleaned and tried not to make a fuss , The receptionist assured me that while we were having our meal in the hotel restaurant where i should mention now that our bread rolls come while we were eating our sweet we asked 3 times for bread ? , anyway getting back to the sick it would be cleaned and it was clearly not , directly after the meal we went to see a movie so by the time i got back it was midnight , This is very poor service i am a platinum IHG card holder and this level of service should not be tolerated , Not good at all a poor show all round just not good enough , i am very disappointed with Crown Plaza on so many differing levels .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JukeBoxHero Best night's sleep in ages
When visiting Glasgow, for business or pleasure, I tend to use the Holiday Inn / Holiday Inn Express due to close proximity to the city centre.
However, for concerts at the SECC or Hampden (I'm an ageing closet rocker) the Crowne Plaza is second to none. So much so, that I no longer bother to check rival hotels in the vicinity.
The comfort of the room, particularly the beds, is as good as anywhere I've stayed in the world.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsJM Overall a good experience
We used he hotel for an overnight dinner bed and breakfast deal.
We were going to a concert at the Secc. The staff were friendly and helpful. The meals were good value and plentiful. The room was clean and bed comfortable. The only slight gripe was the noisy air conditioning which fortunately we were able to turn off at night as it was not too warm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Celebon Great Service and great room
A great stay in a great hotel, every stay that I have had has been as good as the last. The room was clean, well kept and modern with great amenities and a wonderful view down the Clyde. The bed was very comfortable, there was a fridge, a good flatscreen tv with good interactive system and the bathroom was well arranged and spacious. The only minor con was when the air con was cranked up to high and maximum it made a bit of a racket so had to be switched off going to sleep and the room became rather warm but then again it's not very often that Glasgow basks in temperatures of 20oC+. Good with the bad and really, not that bad considering the room.

My stay was, as usual, excellent. Comfortable bed with good quality bedding. Plentiful breakfast and evening buffet. When I encountered a problem with my allocated room, the situation was resolved quickly and in generous fashion with an up-grade. Full marks to reception staff. Looking forward to returning again and have already made a booking.
