Stayed here for a 4 day meeting. The location is great for getting around. The train station is right across the street. The airport AirLink shuttle bus stops about 100 meters in front of the hotel and it's a main hub for all the buses. The department stores are on the street just down from the bus stop. If you turn right from the hotel, and right again, you are at the foot of the Mary's Close staircase that is long and steep, but goes directly up to the Royal Mile, the main Edinburgh street. But, you aren't paying the hotel rate for the Royal Mile. And, if you turn left at the top of the stairs, you come to a large Scotch whiskey store with a complete selection including airplane size for gifts. The room was modern and bathroom spotless and spacious. The bed was comfortable, but they did the folded duvet cover thing that is a bit skimpy for me. It took me a bit to figure out the thermostat. The TV was a large flat panel with ample channels in English. I really liked the bar area and the beers on tap. The bar can serve anything. I saw somebody get a mojito, with fresh mint, in Scotland?! The breakfast buffet was adequate and drip coffee was okay. They also had an espresso/cappuccino machine for extra cost. There are at least 5 pubs within 50 meters of this hotel!! Did I mention this is a really great location?
