Whether it’s business or leisure that brings you to the Scottish capital, you’ll find spacious rooms, comfortable beds and modern amenities are waiting for you at all Holiday Inn Express® Edinburgh hotels. Check in then check out this fascinating city that blends medieval castles with modern architecture and offers world-class museums, excellent shopping and dining, and festivals year-round.
Edinburgh’s city center is divided into Old Town and New Town with the Princes Street Gardens directly in the middle. Both Old Town and New Town have been honored as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and if you choose one of our Edinburgh hotels in the city, you’ll be happy to know that these areas are easily accessible by foot. Old Town dates back to the Middle Ages and offers the big tourist draws: the storied Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the Royal Mile and Mary King’s Close, underground tenements that date back to the 16th century.
The Georgian New Town is the commercial heart of the city and dates back to the late 18th century. Here you’ll find the city’s best shopping and arts. The National Gallery of Scotland features both masterpieces and traveling exhibitions, and if you’re craving a little theatre during your Edinburgh hotel stay, you can catch a West End show at the Edinburgh Playhouse, Europe’s largest theatre.
Edinburgh is also a great destination for sports enthusiasts. Murrayfield Stadium hosts the UK’s biggest rugby matches, as well as regular games for the official Edinburgh Rugby team. Edinburgh also boasts two professional football clubs (soccer to American audiences) and an American-style football team, the Edinburgh Wolves. If you’re staying at our East Edinburgh hotel, you can enjoy the big game, then head to the waterfront district for dinner and cocktails. Or skip the sports all together and enjoy a leisurely day at the beach.
Of course, this is only a small sampling of what you can expect. Our Edinburgh hotels also make an excellent base during the summer festival season and popular Hogmanay New Year’s celebration.
