We had our work nightout in the hotel (2/12/2016). The food was good and bar staff excellent but the whole experience was let down by overly aggressive and threatening security guard who kept dragging people of the dance floor. I feel hotel's management could really do a better job in vetting their staff and certainly I dont expect this type... More

Our stay was for a significant birthday and the whole experience was wonderful. Our room overlooked the Usher Hall and above was the Castle, beautifully lit at night.

We arrived at the hotel pretty early at around 1 o'clock, when we checked in we were informed that our suite was not ready, this wasn't a problem as we were going to the Christmas market anyway however I received a phone call before 3 saying my suite was ready. The classic suite was spacious, modern and very comfortable. Our... More

We have been to this hotel twice now and have not been greatly impressed. The staff are all friendly and efficient but for the price we paid for our room it was not brilliant.

An impressive and classy hotel. Nicely appointed rooms with fabulous bathroom. Separate shower and bath. Excellent facilities, superb catering (was on a two day business conference so assume it was hotel prepared food) Helpful and professional staff. Impressive artwork. A little tucked away but still very close to all the Edinburgh main attractions.

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.

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
