I really liked this hotel. It is centrally located with great facilities, beautiful bedrooms with a nice restaurant. Regarding food, we had dinner and breakfast there and I can honestly say the breakfast was absolutely delicious. Dinner was also very good (chicken liver pate was the smoothest I've had). The only slight annoyance was having to pay for the extra... More

We stayed at the hotel over a long Easter weekend. The hotel is nice but the staff was a bit stuffy at first and somewhat condescending when we asked about some tours. The internet was definitely spotty and you had to reconnect every 24 hours and when one device went out, the others went out even if it wasn't 24... More

My husband and I visited Edinburgh to catch up with our son on his launch night of his bar. We got a really good deal and stayed at the Sheraton Grand on a Saturday night. The hotel was plush, very welcoming and the staff were friendly and warm. We have stayed in various hotels of various price ranges and I... More

When we arrived the hotel was quite busy with booking people in. We didn't have to wait long and managed to arrange for our cases to be stored until we returned later that day. The rooms were good and very clean. We eat out in the evening as the prices were very high! We found it was better value to... More

Our recent stay in The Sheraton was everything we could have expected and more. We have stayed at Sheraton a number of times and the service is always exceptional. Every time we have stayed we have always received a personal service and made to feel like a guest, something a lot of hotels forget. The location of the hotel is... More

Hands down the best hotel in Scotland, if not one of the best I have stayed at PERIOD. I stayed in a castleview room - gorgeous view, spacious room, extremely clean. Bed was extremely comfy and bathroom was spacious. The service was even better - the employees of the hotel are well trained and beyond accommodating. We had a slight... More

Was fortunate enough to win a 2 night break in a suite at the Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa though the WeWin4u website last year, and decided to take it last weekend. Almost had a major panic at reception when it transpired that we had had a Saturday and Sunday night booked for us, when in fact we arrived for... More

We have visited this hotel before, about 5 years ago before the refurbishment. I liked it then, but love it now. We stayed in a club room with access to the club lounge and the spa included in our stay. It was for a special occasion and the hotel certainly gave us a feeling of first class service. The staff...

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods 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 theaters 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.
