The best thing about this hotel was the staff. They were very helpful and friendly.
Another great aspect is that it is a quarter block from the new tramway that goes out to the airport. It runs about every 10 minutes starting at 5:30 in the morning. The bus station is also close, and Waverly train station is within walking distance. Rose Street (great pub crawl) and Market Street (great shopping) are about 5 blocks away. The neighborhood has interesting pubs and restaurants, and is quite walk able.
This is a very stylish hotel. Everything was new, modern, stylish and updated but still had some historic character. Out of an 18 day trip in the UK it had the best bathroom. It was large, nicely tiled, clean and with good bath products. The room was a typically UK sized room but it was not cramped like many are. We were put in a below ground room that had a large window that let in light, but did not have a view of any kind. I have allergies and asthma so I was concerned. However the room was so clean I didn't have any issues.
