Stayed two nights during the Fringe. Ideally situated for all tourist attractions and Princess Street for shopping. The hotel is modern. Our room overlooked Usher Hall and the Castle for which we paid extra. Breakfast was very good. Staff and service first class. Lighting in the room was somewhat confusing and the water pressure in the bathroom was very low.... More

I spent the weekend in Edinburgh at the Sheraton hotel and had an amazing experience. I came up after a business trip in London where I had a disappointing stay at an SPG property. From the time I walked in I was treated well, my SPG platinum status well recognized with a nice room, newly renovated, modern yet functional with... More

Stayed for two nights in a castle view room. Luxurious suite with mood lighting and amenities galore. We also partook of an afternoon at the adjacent one spa. Close enough to most of our personal 'tourist' destinations. Drawback is cost. Not inexpensive.

I just returned from a week in Edinburgh, Scotland, where I stayed at the Sheraton Grande for six nights. We were on the club floor, which I would highly recommend. First of all, I would note the hotel has a wonderful location. It is across the street from Usher Hall and the Traverse Theatre, where we saw excellent theatre and... More

I have just stayed at the Sheraton Edinburgh for a week. This is a lovely hotel. The room was very well appointed and, as always, the bed was really comfortable. The breakfasts were good without being exceptional and the evening meals were good. My only suggestion relates to breakfast. It is served from 7am and there were always people waiting.... More

From the moment we arrived the experience was made memorable by the attitude of your staff. Quite the friendliest and most helpful of any hotel that I have stayed at. An absolute pleasure to deal with. The late check out time was great after a late night in the city. The room was sumptuous, the bathroom decadent. Loved it!! Parking... More

Although the Sheraton in Edinburgh is not cheap, it is great. Large spacious room and a wonderful bath. The location is perfect, we had a castle view. Easy walking on the street in front of the hotel with many restaurants to choose. The bathroom was exceptional and Sheraton beds are hard to beat. If we get back, we will stay... More

We stayed five nights on points so consider this review in those terms. We were there during the Commonwealth Games (diving) and the Fringe Festival which is traditionally a busy time of year. Our check in was excellent and fast. Unfortunately, due to the busy season, we were not upgraded (this seems to be a reoccurring theme at SPG properties... More

We were very impressed with this hotel. The hotel is very well appointed as you would expect for any facility in this price range. Our room was very clean and contrary to other reviews, we found the staff very friendly and helpful. Especially Stuart, the concierge. Funny and engaging. The entire staff was very patient as we learned what to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sheraton Grand has been Edinburgh's gathering place for many years and it is the perfect place to discover this unique destination. From the moment you set foot inside the granite-floored lobby, you'll feel welcome. One Square, our restaurant and bar, serves a delicious range of classic British dishes all day long, while our beautiful bedrooms blend contemporary comfort and Scottish materials with cutting-edge technology. Of course, some things at the Sheraton have always been unbeatable, from One Spa's iconic rooftop Hydropool, to the breath-taking views of Edinburgh Castle. We can't wait to share them with you. ... more   less
