Expert Review

The former home of The Scotsman newspaper now houses this five-star boutique hotel just steps from the Royal Mile and Princes Street, the perfect home-away-from-home for those seeking Scottish elegance and tradition. Great care has been taken to preserve original 19th-century Baroque architectural details, such as elaborate woodwork and an impressive marble staircase. Ten floors accommodate 69 rooms (including 11 suites, 1 baron suite, and 1 penthouse), all of which feature comfortable tweed-inspired décor and stellar amenities, including Egyptian-cotton bedding, bathroom with marble vanity and heated towel rack, broadband Internet access, complimentary shoeshine and newspaper, private bar, satellite TV, and an Edinburgh Monopoly board – but no air-conditioning. Rooms also include a handy “service hatch,” which allows guests to receive room service or items from housekeeping without having to open the door. A new 20,000-square-foot Spa & Health Club features the first stainless-steel pool in Scotland, a steam room, and a dry sauna. After enjoying a meal at North Bridge Brasserie, the hotel’s excellent restaurant, guests can venture into The Screening Room to watch a rotating program of classic and seasonally themed films.
