The Scotsman: The Best Hotel I Have Ever Stayed At
I cannot recommend this place enough. I was blown away by the fabulous service. I went to Edinburgh on a solo trip to explore and this hotel was so close to the train, so it was an easy decision. However, wow. The service was phenomenal. From the moment I checked in, I felt like I was at a luxury spa. In my gorgeous room was a delightful complimentary whisky and an array of brochures on what do to and where to eat. Also, when I had first checked in, I told the woman checking me in (Lisa) that I was on a solo adventure celebrating my new job. A few hours later, I have a knock at the door, and it's room service with a complimentary bottle of champagne from the staff congratulating me. They did not need to do that, but I will never forget it. Not only were they over the top considerate, they also recommended fantastic restaurants and local sightseeing spots. Also, I'm a huge stickler for a clean hotel room and this, by far, was the cleanest. The staff really pays attention to detail. I only stayed for two days, but I am 100% returning to Edinburgh to explore more and I am 200% returning to The Scotsman.

Good 6.0
The good: Excellent Location, Beautiful Hotel, Comfortable bed, Large Room The not so good: WiFi was down for over a day, robes not in room - received after 2 requests, hotel undergoing construction but no notice on website of construction The bad: 1) The deadlock on the room door was offset and therefore did not engage. We weren't comfortable not being able to lock the room while in it. The gentleman from reception did not see this as an issue. 2) I called reception before 10:30pm to order from the 24 hour room service menu. I was told the kitchen was closed and was offered information for local places that might still be open. On check out the next day I mentioned this to reception who claimed that the kitchen was not closed and a limited menu was available. Why was I told otherwise the night prior? 3) The room got chilly in the evening and the air conditioning/heating in the room did not work.

Fabulous Hotel
The room was beautiful, comfortable, clean and quiet. We only were there for 1 night and wish we could have stayed longer. The staff was so helpful, I had a rental car and the fellow came out to my car, sat with me and showed me step by step of where to go to get parked and back to the hotel. When we arrived back our check in was quick and easy and our bags had already been placed in our room. We also ate dinner at the cafe restaurant - was quite delicious.
