Fodor's Expert Review citizenM Glasgow

60 Renfrew St., corner of Hope St., Glasgow, Glasgow City, G2 3BW, Scotland Fodor's Choice

There's no lobby at the futuristic citizenM—no reception area at all, because you can only book online—but there are chic "living spaces" with ultramodern furnishings where guests can congregate and streamlined rooms that are smartly designed. Each has a square bed with storage space beneath and wall-to-wall windows with shutters and blinds that are opened and closed with a touch pad that also adjusts the lighting and air-conditioning. Wi-Fi is free, as are on-demand movies on the LCD TVs. Bathrooms are compact, but clean and efficient. The bar-restaurant offers food around the clock, from sushi to sandwiches, via automatic vending machines. Though the bar is staffed, this is a futuristic establishment with most things arranged via computer. Breakfast is not included, but you can book it ahead for £10.95.
