Our Edinburgh hotels can be found in the most convenient areas for business travelers and first-time visitors to the city center.

The capital city and beating heart of Scotland, Edinburgh is situated on the waterfront of the Firth of Forth. Many call it the city built upon seven hills.
Humans began making this stunning cliff over the water their home by the Bronze Age, and over the centuries, Edinburgh grew to be the most dominant settlement of Scotland. Centuries of conflict followed over who should rule the city, but in 1701, Scotland and England joined their Parliaments with the Acts of Union. You’ll still note an air of Scottish independence in the air, however.
You won’t find many cityscapes more dramatic than Edinburgh’s, with its 12th century Castle fortress looming over the city on a hillside of jet-black rock and bright green grass. From there, the Royal Mile runs down the hill in a jumble of medieval splendor to Holyrood Palace. In contrast, the bordering New Town area is a model of Georgian order and refinement, and was built to accommodate the expanding populace many centuries later. Don’t miss your chance to tour these richly atmospheric areas.
If you happen to visit during the summer months, be sure to catch one of Edinburgh’s wildly popular summer festivals of art and culture. The Royal Lyceum Theatre stages shows year round, while the National Gallery of Scotland hosts a diverse collection of masterworks for the artistically inclined.
Put on your walking shoes and get ready for fabulous shopping along Princes Street, where you can hunt down souvenirs as well as the latest in British fashions. At one end of Princes Street, the St. James Centre holds another wide selection of retail dazzle.
As a major destination for tourists and businesspeople alike, Edinburgh is served by the Edinburgh Airport, Lothian buses, and the major hub of Waverley train station.
