The location of this hotel is excellent. It is in the city centre area, just a block or so away from Buchanan Street. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful, giving us recommendations on what to see and do in Glasgow. It is an easy walk to the Central Train Station where you can catch a train to anywhere (we went to Edinburgh). It's also within walking distance to the Glasgow Cathedral (about a 15 minute walk) and the Necropolis.
The room itself was very nice. We had one of the newer, renovated rooms. It had a large comfy bed, new bathroom, large TV and desk/chair space around the room. Although the hotel is currently under renovation to fix up the other rooms, we never heard any noise. We were told that the work was being completed on other floors and that the work would only be done during the day while most people were out. Even when we were back during the day, we didn't hear anything. I definitely wouldn't worry about it when booking or call and ask that your room be on one of the completed floors.
