We booked the HGI as we wanted to be close to the Clyde Auditorium (2 minutes walk). Room had been recently refurbished and was very nice. Free wifi through an iMac in the room which also served as a TV. Small but perfectly functional bathroom/shower room with plenty of toiletries if you need them. We ate in the City Cafe and the food was excellent. There is a lovely big outdoor space with tables and chairs overlooking the river, it is in a lovely location.
Taxi to the city centre cost less than £5 each way but it's around a 15/20 minute walk if you are that way inclined. There is also the option of walking down to the SECC and catching the underground into Glasgow Central station.
Car park costs £5 per night however we found that reasonable as some other hotels charge more. We will definitely stay here again.
