I was lucky enough to stay at this hotel with a friend during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We had a room on the 7th floor with a fantastic view of the castle - wow! Check in was easy, quick and hassle free. The room itself was spacious, the bathroom fantastic and the view, incredible! We were staying on club level... More

Very good location, walking distance to the castle and railway station. Overall experience in the hotel is great, as the room is good size, and staff is always attentive. The interesting thing is that its front and back entrances are at different levels. Struggled to find the entrance on the map at the beginning. The bit odd is about the... More

They always recognise my SPG platinum status, which is always appreciated. Good SPG lounge with excellent canapes and a good drink offering. The beds are always uber comfy with a great night sleep almost guaranteed. The Spa is simply stunning too. Staff are wonderful with that amazing Scottish charm, but I'm biased ;-) Full breakfast offering is to die for.... More

Complete remodel makes this hotel an incredible, modern and comfortable experience in this great old town! Convenient for old town and the Tattoo, with plenty of new world luxuries. Rooms are average size for a European hotel, but the layout is very clever and maximizes all space. We will be back!

The Sheraton Hotel and Spa as such a great hotel and spa. From the minute you walk in to the reception with the giant chandelier to the luxurious rooms and amazing views over Edinburgh. The hotel staff are so courteous especially the staff in the Club Lounge ( ) where you can settle down at 2 set times during your... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on business. Very handily placed just off Princess Street with most rooms having Castle views. I guess this place must have had a major re-furb in the last few years? All areas of the hotel were bright, modern and very client focussed. Very efficient check in, great bar (pricey but you would expect that). All... More

The walk to new town however is nice and easy. The room was nice, clean, and modern! There are many stores close by the hotel as... More

We stayed here during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015. It was a good place to use for the Festival. It is walking distance to the castle and other sites.. There is a nice breakfast too..!! A very solid hotel directly under the Castle, perfect for anyone visiting

Excellent hotel because of its location and friendly staff. Great place to relax the club lounge 7th floor and superb staff. We arrived late the first day but Lucretia at the 7th floor took care of us and was very helpful during our stay.

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.
