Only 10 minute walk to Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle etc and also close to pubs and eateries in Grassmarket. Didn't have breakfast in hotel by choice...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed February 12, 2017 via mobile

We stayed at the Doubletree for four nights in early January and had a very nice time. Our Castleview room on the fourth floor had a lovely unobstructed view of the castle. The room itself was a nice size though not overly big. We did however expect this for a city center Edinburgh hotel. The bathroom was compact yet very...

Visited in February for a 3 night stay at the DoubleTree. The check in staff were pretty friendly, and as with all DoubleTree's you get a warm cookie on arrival - exactly what we needed after the Plane>Tram journey! Our room was quite large, with a huge bed (with TV at the foot of the bed) and a large clean...

Great location, great staff and wonderful ambience. Although our room was located on the street side, the windows rattled frequently it did not mar our stay as the entire team ensured we were well looked after

Good hotel in good location except if you are at the front of the hotel its is loud due to Chanters bar downstairs which seems to be full of students and the busy street outside. The bar is OK and the breakfast isn't bad and cheaper than some of the other hotels.

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.
