Locations, reliability of service, cleanliness, and what facilities have to offer determine three, four, and five star ratings of Glasgow hotels. Three star offer a nice, clean room, room service, restaurant, pool, and fitness center usually close by main roads. Four star facilities are a classier service with concierge, specialty food services, shuttle and valet services, and are close to businesses and shopping. Five star accommodations will be luxurious. Rooms may be ornate with state of the art furnishings. Butler service 24 hours a day and in house restaurant with highly trained chefs are also part of these. Golf courses may be on grounds or very near. If children need occupied during golf outings or any other time, they provide safe child care. All may require additional fees, but will make a stay first class. Contacting the desired hotel to find out their rating ahead of booking a room can give one and idea of what they offer.
Transportation by car, cab, train, or bus are all incorporated into travel for the city of Glasgow. A subway system is also in place for the city itself. Air travel, nationally as well as internationally, is readily available for quick access. Hotels can be found close by the airport or close to the M8. From downtown Glasgow, it takes about 15 minutes to get there.
Sometimes just getting away for the weekend can be a refreshing change of pace. City center hotels offer bustling city sites day and night. Proximity to shopping, museums, and government buildings for daytime will highlight stays. Nightlife is abundant if that type recreation is desired. One may choose to remain in house in Glasgow hotels with room service handling all dining needs. Spa services and massage, garden centers, and lounges in hotels are some of the attractions offered. Multiple night stays sometimes bring costs down, too.
Company groups, wedding parties, reunions, or clubs can take advantage of group bookings. Rooms can be blocked so people have rooms close by each other. A hospitality room may have refreshments for guests in a group so they are separate from standard guests. For those who having hen or stag parties that might imbibe in alcohol, the safety of having a room where the party is can give peace of mind. Glasgow hotels can provide this.
Westend hotels offer a more suburban stay, but still offer closeness to the main city of Glasgow. Many are housed in remodeled townhouses or estates with rolling grounds of gardens perfect for strolling. If more modern hotels will make a stay more comfortable, many of those are available, too. The Burrell Collection on the Pollock Estate gives visitors a look into the past with the immense collection of tapestries, bronzes, and artifacts. Some are thousands of years old and are from all over the world. Volunteers give wonderful guided tours. Many who come to this place return so westend hotels are fine places to stay. Westend and city center hotels are near the University of Glasgow main campus within a few miles of each other. The hospital is located at the west end if there are medical needs and hotel stays may be wanted by family members who would like to stay nearby.
The River Clyde also brings major industry to Glasgow in the form of shipping. Corporate shipping businesses headquarter in Glasgow and may need employees or clients, from elsewhere, to stay. Some hotels have kitchenettes for those staying long term that need the function of an apartment without the cost or upkeep. Housekeeping staff will keep the room tidied. Business people will have the freedom to do their work without worry of temporary home upkeep. Along with shipping, other sailing industries flourish. Cruise lines also use ports at Glasgow. Shelter for an overnight stay may be desired for tourists who want to extend their holiday time on land. Of course, there are places to fish from land or on the river also. Salmon run the river once again.
If one just wants a clean bed to sleep in or a place to stay with all the bells and whistles, this beautiful, historic yet modern city has everything to accommodate travel needs. Come and stay in Glasgow.
