Glasgow Marriott Hotel
Advantages: Nice plasma TV . Very Clean Room
Last weekend, I stayed at Marriott Hotel in Glasgow with my husband and daughter. I stayed their for two nights. The first night was for a Kings Size Room for which we paid £85. The second night was for a King Size Room, purchased using skywards miles which you get from travelling frequently with emirates airlines.
The First Day of Our Stay
The first day of our stay was absolutely fantastic. When we walked into the room, it was immaculate. The pillows were really soft and there about 5 or 6 of them. Luxury bedding featuring fluffier pillows and cotton-rich linens was provided and it was really comfy, There was a catalogue from Marriott selling the bedding that they provided in the room. However the bedding set is very expensive if you want to purchase it and it costs nearly a grand! The room had a really nice 32 inch flat screen TV. However, you do have to pay £6.95 if you want to watch any movies. You have to enter the room number you are staying using the remote control and it will get charged to your hotel bill. The cot they provided for the baby was satisfactory but it looked more like a play pen so make sure you bring extra bedding for the baby. A nice ironing board, iron and hairdryer is provided which is of good quality. I still prefer to bring my own hairdryer though as my hair kept getting tangled in the end of the hairdryer but that could be because my hair is very long! High speed internet was provided as well. The tea and cofee provide in the room was of excellent quality.
The Second Day of Our Stay
The second day of our stay was dissapointing as they gave us a room with a broken air conditioning unit and a broken fridge. The weather was very hot and my baby was crying all night. I called customer services and they said maintenance was not available to fix the air conditioning unit till morning and by that time we checked out. I was quite disspointed as I used 25000 skwards miles to book the room. It takes about 5 or 6 flights with Emirates to collect that many miles(rewards points) . I have logged a complaint with Marriott and skywards. The rest of the room was perfect but the absence if the air conditioning unit had a bad effect on the rest of our stay. It was such a shame as the first day rated ten out ten :(.
