We visited in March 2017 and were given a very friendly check in and welcomed with hot cookies and the chance to become a Hilton Honors Member for free. The room was very nice, clean and well equipped with a TV at the bottom of the bed, tea coffee, free wifi, iron, hair dryer and a very very large comfortable...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 February 2017 via mobile

We stayed at the Doubletree for four nights in early January and had a very nice time. Our Castleview room on the fourth floor had a lovely unobstructed view of the castle. The room itself was a nice size though not overly big. We did however expect this for a city center Edinburgh hotel. The bathroom was compact yet very...

Visited this hotel in March for a weekend away with my boyfriend. We arrived at the hotel around 4pm on a Friday and we had to wait for 5-10 minutes before there was an available receptionist, bit annoying but it was Friday so understandable that they were busy. We were greeted by Melise who was very friendly, and we were...

Stayed for a few nights, and overall enjoyed being here. Staff were friendly, & efficient, but on check-out, it appeared new staff were being trained, as all staff seem quite distracted on other things. Rooms were very comfortable, and clean. Only downside was we could hear movement from the room above us. Location was great, easy to walk to things...

I was disappointed by my stay… it is a Hilton Hotel so you do expect same quality service as anywhere else… and I must say that quite a number of people dropped the ball during my 5 day stay… Not all employees are bad or not doing their job, but those few who “suck” really made it not pleasant for...

Clean, updated, and lovely hotel. The staff were extremely accommodating with directions, services, and activity/restaurant recommendations. The location was central and within walking distance to most everything.

Nice hotel and pleasant staff, and nice to be able to check in and choose my room beforehand as a Hilton Honors member. Good location, especially for the Usher Hall that night.

We were looking for a hotel close to the Usher Hall and this was perfect - away from the noisy main road and with a sneaky view of the Castle. We were welcomed with warm cookies (chocolate & walnut - ??? a strange choice based on how common nut allergies are) but there was also complimentary fruit in reception. The...

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.
