Over the summer of 2014 I spent four weeks in Glasgow. During that month I probably spent most of my time in the foyer of the Radisson Blu.We had borrowed a friends flat just up the road on Argyle Street which was great but lacked a fundamental and very necessary component – WiFi, which meant that most days were spent locating the best place to work, answer emails and generally know what was going on in the world. The Radisson Blu become a home away from home and I must say by the end of the month everyone in the hotel treated us like we were family members!
After spending many days in the Atrium of the Radisson I was really excited about seeing the rest of the hotel. Checking in was a particularly smooth process as we were on first name terms with the reception staff and I must say I was delighted to finally see a bedroom! The room was lovely and comfortable with a great desk, large bathroom and cool artwork dotted throughout the space.
The location is great, not just for people staying up the road, but for those on business trips and tourists. The hotel is opposite Central Station and a few minutes walk into the city centre with all of its shops and attractions. Within the hotel there are a number of conference and meeting spaces, all of which were used regularly throughout our stay in Glasgow, and a variety of restaurant and bar areas. Guests also have access to the local Sports Direct Gym which has a gym, pool sauna and steam room.
The glass fronted atrium means that there is plenty of natural light coming in through the windows of the hotel making the Grahamston Bar a fantastic place to enjoy a working lunch, afternoon tea or a quick coffee. I can also honestly vouch for the WiFi throughout the hotel – it is excellent.
