After debating what hotel to book, I arranged to stay here with my Fiancée on the 3rd and 4th March 07 for her forthcoming birthday. I was delighted to have been told that we were given a free upgrade to a suite, which we subsequently found out was probably the best room in the hotel.
The suite was very spacious and clean. We received bottled water each night, which also came in useful after a few alcoholic beverages. The best thing about having a suite was access to the 'library' which was a designated room for guests staying in suites only. Here, breakfast was served as well as afternoon tea and cakes and champagne in the early evening.
The restaurant was nice and modern with great food served. The wine list was also very extensive which came in handy.
We also used the swimming pool, sauna and steam room which were all very good.
Overall, we had an excellent stay and with the addition of very good staff, we would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Edinburgh.
