Expert Review

Baroque meets modern at this glamorous bespoke hotel in New Town, where exceptional attention to detail has been lavished on every nook and cranny. The designers searched the world over for the unique furnishings featured in the public spaces and 12 individually decorated guestrooms. Ornamental wallpapers, intricately carved furniture, ornate mirrors, and textured draperies are complemented by simple, modern accents. The effect is visually arresting, yet never busy. Guestrooms feature Egyptian-cotton sheets and goose-down duvets, wireless Internet access, flat-screen TVs, rain showers, complimentary newspapers and muffins, and iPod docks. Two “Castle Suites” offer exceptional views of iconic Edinburgh Castle. The Rutland’s award-winning restaurant focuses on locally sourced, modern brasserie-style fare, while The One Below, its ultra-sophisticated club-lounge, will have nightlife aficionados swooning. Popular with locals, the moody, jewel-toned space has an iBar (an interactive bar top that changes color and pattern), private iPod booths, one of the best sake collections in Britain, and an elaborate cocktail list.
