Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rustyplough Good food, rRiendly staff and great location...
We use Holiday Inns a lot and this hotel was up to usual high standard. We had a refurbished room - they may all be now - which was very modern, clean and kitted out. Because it is a city centre hotel and presumably space at a premium the rooms are a bit small.
The lounge/bar area is a bit cramped and not too relaxing but great staff make up for this.
The food was excellent - both dinner in the Bonne Auberge Restaurant and breakfast.
The location is great for a City Break.
Would recommend and will use again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by orangemanstu Delightful stay with excellent restaurant and great staff
As someone who used to travel about 48 weeks a year, for around 15 years, and who still travels a lot for pleasure and for some independent consulting, I've stayed at many hotels, eaten at a slew of restaurants usually avoiding the hotel restaurants, and have dealt with all sorts of hotel staff, from cranky and nasty to OK and kind of like their job. The stay at the Holiday Inn Glasgow - Theatreland was by far, above and beyond, one of the best, extended stay business trip hotel experiences I've had .. if not the best. Don't mean to be rude about the Holiday Inn chain, but they are OK and I have stayed with them a lot especially in the past decade what with the newer Holiday Inn Express hotels and with the renovation of many of the older Holiday Inns. But it's not usually a brand I would choose first.
This particular Holiday Inn was nothing like I expected at all ... non-sterile ambience, immaculate and squeaky clean rooms and environment, impeccably trained and highly professional staff who obviously take great pride in their hotel and their work, and one of the best restaurants I've eaten in, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Oh those dinners ... wow! .... simple, perfect, French style cuisine amazingly prepared and affordable with a friendly (but not overly cloying, "Hi, my name is Becky and I'll be your server tonight" awful American style friendly) wait staff that works together like a true team.
This particular Holiday Inn is up there with seriously high quality competitors. And a great location in the middle of Glasgow. I've traveled all over the U.S. and all over the world ... this was up there in my top 5 favorite hotel experiences, and by far, the best hotel restaurant I've ever experienced. Actually, just one of the best restaurants in my experience ... period. This place is delightful and a treasure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ElizaJane Surprising quality and comfort in downtown Glasgow
Booking hotels on line is always a gamble, and we had middling expectations of a central hotel where we could meet our son coming in from London, after we had come from Toronto.
Holiday Inn City Ctr was great location - for connecting to subway, buses and trains to explore different tourist destinations. We made a day trip to Edinburgh without having to pack and repack. In Glasgow so much to see and do - museums/galleries including The Kelvingrove, the west end for restaurants and bars, the Burrell collection on the south side, the University and environs as well as the botanical gardens. The cathedral area and all the downtown areas and Mackintosh sites were in walking distance down the Mall. The night life in the Merchant City is great for observing or participating.
Multiplex cinema and concert hall and theatres are on the doorstep as the hotel name implies.
Great city, great hotel, great location and great staff. It was comfortable, clean and had all the amenities and luxuries of a good hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jones_250 Enjoyable stay
Stayed for one night and the hotel and room was nice and recently refurbished. Overall, no complaints for a short stay. Price was not an issue as it was with work but I would not want to pay as much for a personal stay

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel,the staff were friendly, food and wine all very good,and a comfortable room.
We have stayed in many hotels in Glasgow, but a first time for here, not the last though!!
Did not have break-fast so cannot comment on that,but if the dinner was anything to go by, I'm sure it would have been very good too!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rockhound1 Normally a great place to stay
The foot print of this room was so small there was only one chair the other person had to site on the bed. For two people with suit cases there should be places to place and open the suit case and leave it there. There were no PC’s available for the consumer to use. It would be nice to get you boarding pass and move photography’s from memory cards to a storage device. No I don’t normal travel with a PC because of the power requirements.
