I spent one night here while on a job in Edinburgh, you couldn't ask for a better location, rooms are nice, comfortable and there is a genuine Scottish breakfast. All I need for a business trip, except for a proper business centre. I was having a few onlie meetings on the second day and was left to have them in...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Visited in February for a 3 night stay at the DoubleTree. The check in staff were pretty friendly, and as with all DoubleTree's you get a warm cookie on arrival - exactly what we needed after the Plane>Tram journey! Our room was quite large, with a huge bed (with TV at the foot of the bed) and a large clean...

I have stayed at many DoubleTrees, in the UK, they tend to be a mixed bag. This was however a good option, modern and clean. The room was a little on the tight side, but was quiet and I slept well. Staff were helpful and friendly. Will certainly be on my list of hotels in Edinburgh

The hotel was very comfortable, the staff was helpful and very friendly. It was nice to get a cookie upon arrival. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning. The hotel is in an excellent location, just a short walking distance from the city's attractions and many restaurants.

Our first evening at this hotel was an absolute horror. We arrived late and decided to eat at the brasserie. The Indian manager( we are Indian) decided to seat our party of five on the one table where you could not even pull out the chairs, even though the restuarant was relatively empty. We specifically enquired if the Thai green...

Excellent service, good location, comfortable rooms pretty much sums up this hotel. The location is interesting to say the least. What looked like the business district is loaded with good restaurants, theatres and even a couple of strip bars offering lap dances! The staff are extremely polite and helpful. A fairly senior member spent a good deal of time to...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
