Went to an event in the hotel. Once it was over they REFUSED to serve us alcohol cause we weren’t residents, absolutely ridiculous!!!! After the pandemic this should be welcomed as the whole world has suffered!!!!!

It’s been a while but returned in business and got an excellent warm welcome from the staff. Amanda on reception was amazingly helpful, a big thank you to making my stay so comfortable and Dawn in the restaurant for her time. Food was great quality, rooms were really clean and warm! look forward to my next stay.

Completed in 1989, the building that is now home to the Crowne Plaza is located on the banks of the Clyde in the Finnieston area of the city, adjacent to the SEC Centre and opposite BBC Pacific Quay. It’s a fairly stark but shiny exterior that greets guests as they arrive. The hotel is unusual in layout in that it doesn’t really have a lobby – or at least, not one that feels like most other hotel lobbies. The reception is just to the left of the main entrance, in front of the lifts and in what is essentially the corridor to the fitness centre and car park beyond. Immediately to the right of the entrance is the hotel’s bar and restaurant, in a high-ceilinged extension to the building. The whole space feels quite transient, and the dated mid-2000s interior design, whilst in reasonably good condition, adds nothing to the ambience. There was no queue to check-in, where I was offered the usual choice of 600 welcome points or a complimentary drink at the bar. We were handed a letter explaining that due to a shortage of staff caused by self-isolation requirements, there would be no housekeeping during our stay; 500 points would instead be credited to my account for each night, and a small selection of self-serve housekeeping items would be available in a room just off reception. I hope the pandemic doesn’t become a convenient excuse for hotels to reduce service standards on a more permanent basis in the future. As it was, housekeeping was inexplicably provided on the first day, although was absent on the second despite us requesting a quick refresh of the room before we left for the day. Our Executive room on the top (16th) floor was an upgrade from our booked standard room, although the front desk staff had apologised that the Club lounge was closed at the time of our stay (it has since reopened). Whilst small, the room was in good condition and had clearly been refurbished within the last few years – a refurbishment which had happily extended to the bathroom, as is often not the case. The expansive view west along the Clyde was the undoubted standout feature of the room. The team had kindly set up a welcome cake platter on the coffee table alongside the complimentary still and sparkling mineral water, and whilst the minibar was empty, the tea and coffee tray held a plentiful supply of teabags, a miserly sole sachet of hot chocolate, along with a couple of tea cakes. Cups were paper (presumably a pandemic precaution), and the room was devoid of paper, pens and other unnecessary virus-attracting accoutrements such as magazines and hotel information folders. The room service menu had been spared banishment. We rang down for some cutlery for the welcome platter, which was promptly delivered. I was a little disappointed that, given this was an Executive room, there was no coffee machine. The room was well equipped with power and USB sockets either side of the bed and adjacent to the desk, Sky TV (a rarity in UK hotels, and I believe exclusive to Executive rooms and suites at this property) and fast wifi. The wardrobe could’ve done with a few more hangers. The bathroom featured upgraded Antipodes toiletries in large pump bottles, and a powerful rainshower, even if it was over the bath. The bath was on the narrow side, and the plug had to be removed to enable the water to drain easily; at least there wasn’t a shower curtain. The usual extra toiletries were missing – I’m sure a dental or shaving kit would’ve been available on request, but the pandemic has surely done away with these often wasteful extras as standard. I particularly liked the large Vitra washbasin, bright lighting and the anti-steam mirror – although the lack of face cloths, plastic glasses, peeling door and ceiling paint, and wobbly toilet roll holder were less appealing. Both robes and slippers were provided. A comfy bed was let down by soft and unsupportive pillows; aircon was quiet and effective enough on the lowest setting for an undisturbed sleep, although higher settings would’ve been a little too intrusive. We used the swimming pool on a few occasions; the changing rooms were well appointed, towels were provided at the dedicated fitness centre reception, and whilst the pool was small and fairly basic in design, the facility was clean and quiet in the mornings. A sauna, steam room and jacuzzi were much appreciated extra features. Breakfast in the Mariner restaurant had all the basics covered, and was more than adequate – just what you’d expect from a Crowne Plaza. Due to social distancing, at the time of our stay guests had to pre-book a breakfast time, which is somewhat constraining but understandable. We found the staff to be fairly flexible in actual arrival time, there was never a wait of more than a few minutes, and the rather primitive 45-minute table time for breakfast at the weekend was not enforced. The buffet was in full operation – indeed, everything was self-service, with no waiter service or à la carte menu available. Tables were cleared promptly, although not particularly regularly when guests were still sitting. The front desk team accommodated a 14:00 check-out – the latest they could offer, which aligned perfectly with our departure for the airport. The Crowne Plaza delivered a perfectly adequate stay, well located between the West End and the city centre.
