Reserved one night in standard room with points during Festival Fringe at last minute.
Surprisingly, even as Silver HH only, upgraded to HH floor. Was Saturday night stay, so may be reason for upgrade. Seemingly only perk for this floor, other than high floor, was bottled water in room.
Room: King. Large. Lots of room. Normal windows. Nothing special with windows so room a bit on dark side. Lots of great lighting in room fixtures offset however. Bed & pillows okay. Large flat screen (didn't turn on).
Bath: Compact. Shower only. Shower good size with good water pressure. Absolutely no room for stuff in bath. No outlet for women either.
Towels: Okay. Not hotel worn, yet.
Cleanliness: Bath could be better. A few issues.
Standard: Iron/board; mini-fridge. Hair dryer was awful. If thick or long hair, you will suffer.
Kettle: In room.
Staff: All encountered, exceptionally nice & helpful.
Breakfast: (Didn't eat.) However large area off lobby with huge windows to outside.
Wifi: Free in lobby only.
Lobby: Two huge PCs for use with nice printer.
Elevators: As noted by others, slowest two ever. Except 0630 Sunday morning!
Location: From Royal mile, go toward castle. At roundabout in last block before castle, veer left onto Johnston Terrace. Follow around exterior of castle. Turns into Spittal St which ends at a T on Bread St. Right smack at the Doubletree. So super easy to walk from main train station, Waverly.
Value: For points used, good stay in nice hotel close to castle, tattoo, royal mile and Waverly train station.
