Hotel of the week: Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa in Edinburgh, Scotland
Situated in the dramatic shadows of Edinburgh Castle, the five-star Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa has been a popular gathering place at the heart of the city for many years, and following a complete refurbishment, there could be no better time to rediscover this unique destination.
From the moment you set foot inside the granite-floored lobby, you will feel perfectly at home. The Library, with its welcoming fireplace and refined colour palette, offers a haven of tranquillity, while Link@sheraton™ makes it easy to catch up with friends or connect with the world outside.
Drawing inspiration from the grand cafés of Europe, the new restaurant and bar, One Square, serves a deliciously inventive range of classic British dishes all day long, from laidback brunch and indulgent afternoon tea to relaxed late-night dining. Thanks to its tempting drinks list, and stylish glass frontage, One Square is fast becoming the venue of choice for hotel guests and locals alike.
Of course, if you’d prefer a quiet night in, the new bedrooms won’t disappoint. Blending contemporary comfort and subtly Scottish materials, these feature mood lighting, media hubs and glass-walled bathrooms. In total, there are now 269 stunning guest rooms.
Guests staying on the luxurious Club Level have exclusive access to the Club Lounge – where they can savour a complimentary breakfast, and help themselves to a drink or snack.
While much has changed, some things at the Sheraton Grand have always been hard to beat, from One Spa’s iconic rooftop Hydropool, soothing Thermal Suite and Spa Treatments, to the breathtaking views of the Edinburgh skyline.
If you’re looking for a luxury Edinburgh hotel this Christmas, then look no further.
