Expert Review

Scottish tradition is nowhere to be found at this quirky, cutting-edge New Town hotel, where some of the world’s greatest cities are tastefully represented in 18 individually decorated “boudoirs.” While all accommodations offer similar amenities – Egyptian-cotton sheets, wireless Internet, rain shower, under-floor heating, and a champagne-and-chocolate-filled minibar – the décor varies greatly. “Tokyo,” for example, features a cherry blossom mural, red lanterns, framed silk kimonos, and black lacquer furnishings, while “St. Petersburg” is bedecked in a palette of silver and ice blue with décor modeled after Catherine the Great’s palace. “Atlantis” is one of the most popular suites, with its wall-size blue light box and bubbling aquarium over the bed. Three vibrant restaurants and bars (Paris, Milan, and Vienna) are definitely not for those seeking a quiet tête-à-tête, but they do offer an array of reasonably priced fare. Those in the mood for post-dinner dancing needn’t look further than Shanghai Club, Le Monde’s pulsating ground-floor nightclub.
