I had a recent four night stay at the Holiday Inn Express Glasgow Riverside. I book the room at 10,000 points a night which I think was a great value as I was trying not to spend much on my lodgings for this trip. The hotel now is 20,000 points a night which may not be such a great value. The cash rate was around 90 pounds a night while I stayed in early May. The hotel is in walking distance of many shops and restaurants and some sights. It is in walking distance from the Airport Bus stop at Queen's Road Railway station and a cab is 15-20 pounds one way. My assigned room was not immediately ready (I got "upgraded" to the biggest room on the floor with a river view because of my Platinum status). I was offered a drink from the lobby bar while I waited maybe 10 minutes. The room was clean but not the most up to date in decor which really does not bother me. The heating/air register is on the wall and was rather loud. I just turned it off at night. The bathroom was rather small but I was traveling by myself at this point in the trip so it was not a problem. There was not a lot of counter top space in the bathroom. The breakfast was included with every room and was ok. I would stay away from the hot food. I can make my breakfast on fruit, yogurt and croissants. The one thing I feel was a real negative was I found out from my cab driver when I went back to the airport that if the hotel rings you a cab they get a cut from the cab company. So if I had rung the cab company myself it would have been 15 pounds not 20. It left a kind of negative opinion of the hotel at the end of my trip. I would have liked to know the hotel was getting paid to ring the cab for me. I would stay there again at the right price. I think the IHG hotels in the theater district are slightly better located.
