Very clever landscaping of the hotel roof garden against the dramatic background of Calton Hill makes you forget that you are in the centre of Edinburgh, a few minutes walk from Princes Street and Waverley Station. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully furnished in a contemporary "boutique hotel" style. A great welcome from the concierge and reception staff - all... More

We stayed at this hotel and our room was upgraded to a suite. I was surprise with the upgrade but it was a nice gesture. The suite was spacious and beautiful with modern amenities. It has a huge balcony with a lovely view of the city. It also has a roof top garden with a nice view. The staff are... More

Booked a weekend there at the end of July and was upgraded at checkin to a corner suite room, I'm a gold member with Marriott so I think this was why. The hotel is a short walk from Waverley Station. Access to the city from the hotel is terrific. It's a 10-15 minute walk to most sites in Edinburgh. The... More

The hotel was located close to everything. There were plenty of restaurants, shopping, and sights close by. We were upgraded to a Suite which was spacious, clean and modern. We had the the terrace view which was great and nice to just sit and relax. My only qualm with the hotel was that the staff seemed annoyed when we asked... More

This cost us all our Marriott rewards but it was well worth it. Great rooms, great service, great location. Excellent places to eat within a five minute walk. Breakfast was great be sure to try the porridge with strawberries in it. If you are a platinum Marriott rewards member, the evening snack of cheeses and fruit is a wonderful surprise.

The glasshouse is my hotel of choice in Edinburgh., and have also hosted several group events here. Rooms are quirky, slightly separate areas for sitting or working and then the main bedroom. Garden in the middle of the hotel is pretty pleasant , honesty bar also nice. No traditional big lobby or restaurant, but that's part of the charm. Also... More

A very unpleasant and stressful experience and not worth the hassle! With great expectation we arrived outside the hotel at a small, totally inadequate 'Taxi' rank where we were forced to double park in a busy bus lane while we went to reception to enquire about parking. We were advised that it was a simple matter of going up the... More

The hotel is beautiful and in the perfect location for a visit to Edinburgh. However, upon arrival in my room I noticed crumbs on the floor by the bed. When I pulled the bed away from the wall, behind the headboard I found an open package of cookies, crumbs, and a balled up tissue. Yuck! I requested a transfer and,... More

I found The Glasshouse through the Marriott website. Having been to Edinburgh three times before, had some idea of the part of town I wanted to be. The Glasshouse is close to the main rail station, Waverly, and also has a Big Bus stop right in front of the hotel. The lobby is rather sparely furnished but has an interesting... More

I stayed in the Glasshouse for one night, and loved it! The room was exceptionally comfortable, and the bathroom was clean and spacious. The garden out the back of the hotel was stunning, and a wonderful little oasis. The location could not be beat, backing up as it does to Regent Park. Absolutely perfect for setting of on a wander...
