We visited Ediburgh for 2 days as the kick off to our tour of Scotland and it was a great home base. The girls at the front desk were very accommodating and, the stout young lads intervened and carried our bags (and my parents who were travelling with us) up two flights of stars, as the elevator was broken (no biggie - the part had to come from Italy or some such - it was a fancy looking elevator after all). The desk staff also gave us some nice tips of local restaurants and the like as well and really helped take care of our party.
The rooms were stylish and modern and since the hotel is parked at a busy roundabout corner the views of the New City around it are great. And of course, it's across the street from a view of the majestic castle and Royal mile and is in easy walking distance of all of the key sites downtown. Theirs a funky bar downstairs where we had delicious inclusive breakfasts, including the first taste of haggis for all of us (quite tasty) as well as some pre-evening outing drinks. There's a fancier steak resto upstairs but we didn't go there.
