You will not be disappointed with this hotel. Staff so friendly. Hotel is amazing. Rooms immaculate. Spa is amazing. Only slight disappointment was that the first time we went to the spa it was far too busy. Next morning was quiet and far better.

From the second we arrived on Friday afternoon our experience was nothing short of exceptional. Maria checked us in and set the tone for our stay, phenomenal customer service, she was the best receptionist we've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Food is superb and the service exemplary throughout the hotel. These staff obviously take what they do very...

This is not a charming boutique hotel with cosy nooks and timeless charm. From the outside it doesn't look that great. Inside, decor is clean and modern. (Standard) rooms have smallish windows so while, yes, you may see the castle, in practice it's not that impressive. They tried to pimp up the rooms with a convoluted bathroom design and fancy...

This is the service that I'm expecting from a 5 star. Reception and concierge (I remember just Lukasz ) outstanding. Spa area good I'm expecting a pool bigger but everything was nice and quiet! The room facilities outstanding and bathroom really great. The room was quiet small but for one night was enough, in case I need a bigger room...

Some rooms have a view of Edinburgh castle which is a short uphill walk to the Royal Mile. Rooms are modern. Concierge is helpful -- he was able to get us a reservation at a restaurant that had no tables available that evening. The lighting in the room is a little challenging because some lights turn on by entry and...

Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Sheraton. On arrival we got a nice upgrade to a room with a view of the castle which was a nice wee surprise. The room was lovely and spacious and spotlessly clean. There were lots of nice little luxuries in the room. Had a few drinks in the hotel bar and...

Visited here on a few occassion, great hotel, modern, fresh clean and well located in Edinburgh. Multi storey car parking to rear of building offering close safe parking if driving. Rooms are faultless as is the service. This is exactly what you would expect from a city centre hotel. Will definitely be back.

We came here before Christmas for my fiancées birthday for 3 nights. The room was with a castle view. It was spacious, nice decor and spotlessly clean. Walking distance to the shops and castle roughly 10 mins. We used the spa and enjoyed the rooftop pool! Breakfast was good and the staff seem very professional. Hopefully will be back and...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods 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 theatres 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sheraton Grand has been Edinburgh's gathering place for many years and it is the perfect place to discover this unique destination. From the moment you set foot inside the granite-floored lobby, you'll feel welcome. One Square, our restaurant and bar, serves a delicious range of classic British dishes all day long, while our beautiful bedrooms blend contemporary comfort and Scottish materials with cutting-edge technology. Of course, some things at the Sheraton have always been unbeatable, from One Spa's iconic rooftop Hydropool, to the breath-taking views of Edinburgh Castle. We can't wait to share them with you. ... more   less
