Airport to Apex City of Glasgow hotel City Center

What are the options of getting from the Glasgow airport to the Apex City of Glasgow Hotel in the city center?

Is there a Tram/Subway stop at the airport that goes to the City Center area?

The hotel says the regular bus service is reliable: " From Glasgow Airport, the First 500 shuttle leaves the airport from Stance 1 approximately every 10 minutes. Take the bus to its final destination at Buchanan bus station. Head toward Buchannan Galleries and turn right onto Killermont Street then left onto West Nile Street. Continue down the hill and then take left onto Bath Street where the hotel is to the right. "

Then there are always cabs. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.

Thanks.

The hotel instructions are in a way correct! With a small tweak!

500 Airport Express as mentioned, but get off at Central Station!

It is quicker and more straightforward to walk up Hope St (800 yds) to Bath St rather than stay on the Bus another 10 mins while it meanders through the City Centre going through around a dozen sets of Lights, then walking a zig zag route for 10 minutes back to the Hotel!

No trains/subways/trams from the Airport!

Taxi would be about £22.

2 additional Platforms built at Central, track tripled between Central and Paisley, Land purchased between Paisley and the Airport (1 Mile), then!
