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.

We stayed in an executive room on a Sunday and Monday night. The hotel was nice and peaceful as you might expect but also because we couldn't hear any of the traffic noise directly outside, so good soundproofing! The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Room was very

The Standard Double Room at The Rutland Hotel
My kids were all beyond the age to require babysitting, so I don't have personal knowledge of this. Trip Advisor lists this hotel in the top 5 hotels in Edinburgh with babysitting, but I would check with the hotel directly if I were you - and let them know the ages of your kids. (On a related note- look for a toy chest full of kids games in the apartment you stay in- we didn't see it until we were leaving).
