A touch of the modern in timeworn Glasgow
In the heart of Scotlands largest city, the citizenM Hotel Glasgow is a state-of-the-art establishment that accommodates visitors down to the tiniest detail.
With cash-free, online-only booking theres more than a dash of a modern approach to this particular 4-star hotel. Whilst guests are provided with your typical amenities (television, bed, en-suite toilet and shower) its the presentation of such that stands out.
The en-suite toilet is contained within a roller-door enclosure to maximise privacy. The shower is referred to as a rain shower with high pressure water that mocks a summer rain storm. The television is a large, flat-screen LCD number that includes free on-demand movies. Its your standards with a twist.
Each room features a wall-to-wall window that allows for more natural lights, a full-length mirror, and a luxury king-size bed. A global plug system allows guests from all corners of the world to charge mobile telephones, laptops, and the likes.
The most remarkable bedroom feature is the mood pad. This electronic device allows guests to remotely control the television, lights, blinds, temperature, alarm clock, and general ambience of the room, which has a number of different coloured lights to suit your mood.
Its not only the rooms that have been given a splash of the unique at the citizenM Hotel Glasgow. A concierge desk is swapped for self-service check-ins which allows you to adjust your room settings before you even enter. The lobby is made up of three living rooms, one for work purposes, one for relaxing in front of the television, and one for meeting with friends. Each is stylishly furnished and has an atmosphere to match.
The hotels restaurant, named canteenM, offers guests a wide range of snacks and meals. Sandwiches and salads are prepared for on-the-go visitors, whilst sushi and warm meals can be prepared for those with a little more time on the hands. A bar also serves the building, offering cocktails and other beverages until 3am. Its a fine destination for those about to head out onto the streets of Glasgow and anybody just hoping for a quiet drink.
Meeting rooms can also be booked by both guests and the public, and WiFi access is free.
Whilst everything you could possibly need is contained within the complex, it would be rude not to venture outside to see what the city of Glasgow has to offer.
Only moments away youll find the Royal Concert Hall. The venue regularly features events such as diverse as opera, orchestra, ballet, comedy, rock music concerts, and musicals. Other local theatres include the Theatre Royal, Pavilion Theatre, the Kings Theatre, and Glasgow Film Theatre.
Festivals are held in the city throughout the year. Visitors to the city can expect to be entertained by the likes of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, Celtic Connections (which focuses on traditional Scottish music), the Glasgow Film Festival, the Glasgow International Jazz Festival, and a multitude of others.
This is only a dip in the ocean in terms of the activities and events youll find within walking distance of the citizenM Hotel Glasgow, meaning there should be something to keep you at least a little entertained.
