“What a beauty of a hotel and oh so professional!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Loved it here. In such a great location. My large comfy room looked out on to the Castle and was minutes away from great shopping and walking. We were here as part of a tradeshow trip and could not find fault with anything here. Excellent food, attentive staff, all amenities you could want, quiet rooms with tub and separate showers, coffee and tea tray, safe, bathrobe and desk.

Totally wonderful hotel to stay in!

I have stayed at many Sheraton's and this property is on another level. The beautiful design seems to blend the modern details with the traditional Scottish experience. The rooms were set-up perfectly for an international business audience with plugs for both Britain, Europe and the US. The lighting was a great bonus. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was very luxurious. As a SPG member the club level was wonderful with lovely food and beverage options. I wish I could of stayed longer and taken advantage of the spa.

Room Tip: Ask for a castle view - beautiful at night!

Our first time in Edinburgh Scotland, we had booked the Sheraton thru Delta Vacations and were not disappointed. The staff at the hotel was simply great. Wayne, the Doorman, made us feel like long lost friends who had dropped back in for a quick chat and update on what had been going on over the last year. After 15 minutes we let him get back to his work and agreeing to chat again in two days when he returned to work. I looked forward to our chat and his interest in insuring we were well taken care of at the hotel. The staff there has all been great and each one has made us feel as if we are the only ones spraying here at the hotel. We will return here again. Only a short walk to Princes street and eventually the Edinburgh Castle which the hotel overlooks. A very nice hotel with a convenient location to all of downtown Edinburgh. Did we mention a great breakfast at the Red Squirrel!

An excellent hotel, top quality, not cheap of course, but you get what you pay for. Nice spacious rooms, excellent service, superb spa and all of that in a perfect location to easily visit the whole city.

We had booked a castle view room and when we went there they gave us a room on the third floor wher the view was blocked by the entrance arch an it reflected in the mirror giving the room a hideous look.its room no311. We asked the lady to change our room to a higher floor but she told us that the rooms were pre assigned and she couldn't do anything about it. Maybe they should assign such rooms to single business travellers and not family holidayers who would enjoy the view.But after a lot of persuasion and talking to two different people and wasting an hour of our time they shifted us to a top floor.
Apart from that, the hotel is well located,service is good,rooms are a good size. I don't really understand the color changing lights in the bathroom ,I think it's silly.The breakfast is great. On weekends it's open till eleven.The staff in the breakfast room are very helpful too. The restraunt seems to be popular .

Room Tip: A castle view room in the 4th floor and above.

I spent one night here on May 19th and was upgraded to a Castle View room by the very kind Stefania at check in and was very happy with my beautiful room! This is the nicest Sheraton I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in many around the world. You will be very happy if you choose this hotel as well when you visit the lovely city of Edinburgh!

Location a little bit of a hike from downtown, but lovely none the less. Room very nice. Staff was wonderful, my husband wasn't feeling well and they directed me to a pharmacy where I could get some medicine, as their gift shop was closed. The Spa was first class, therapist helped me out tremendously, had a stiff neck. Was a wonderful first experience in Scotland.
