The location is wonderful-overlooks Charlotte Square and is 2 blocks off the noisy, touristy Princes street. The hotel itself has a early Georgian front with a new wing built in. Definitely ask for the new wing. Room was quiet and comfortable. Lobby, sitting areas, bar , restaurants were well designed and comfortable.
Two issues were problematic- housekeeping was erratic- first night we got chocolates- never saw them again .On the last night we were given bathrobes. Each day the room was made up very late in the day-seemed to focus on check outs first which is annoying to come back at 3.30 and find the room is still not made up. There were several weddings on the weekend and the last one had a very disruptive band that thumped away very loudly until12 midnight.
The entrance to the hotel is very small and all the smokers congregate there for a puff which makes exiting and entering smelly and difficult. The hotel needs to find another area for the smokers to congregate!
