Not a 5-Star Hotel
Everyone at the hotel – the people who worked in reception to restaurant staff were very friendly and warm. Especially Ivor, the concierge. The food in the restaurant was also superb. The reason I rated the hotel so low is because we had a problem with the room that was not handled well -- certainly not even handled as well for a 3 star hotel. Our room had a terrible odor – like a sewer – and the carpet was damp in the front of the room. I complained about this 3 times during the two nights that we were there and also at our departure. The most that was done were bathroom towels placed on the damp carpet and then after sterner complaints – some harsh chemicals were used on the carpet but now the room just smelled more like chemicals rather than sewage, -- but the foul odor was still there! No one in management ever checked in with us – even though one of the hotel staff told me he could smell the odor, as well, even though he had a cold! We had 2 nights sleeping with the window open (making the room noisy and requiring us to put in ear plugs to sleep) and we kept the room fan on for some circulation (hotel rooms do not have A/C). All this for $600+ a night! If you don't mind this kind of treatment for this kind of price - this is your hotel. However, if you want better service when something goes wrong, stay clear of this "5-star" (ahem) hotel.

Great location just off the Royal Milwaukee. But the hotel is definitely run down. Not worth the price. Needs an overhaul.

Scotsman: Venerable Venue, but Not Really Modern?
Scotsman is an elegant venue at an outstanding downtown Edinburgh location. But, the property is a remodel of the headquarters of the "Scotsman" newspaper. And because the property has been remodeled (as distinguished from being built "new), it has features that are charming and consistent with its age. But, it doesn't have air conditioning, and the bathroom we had didn't have a modern shower facility. The buffet breakfast (included in the price) was very satisfactory; the dining room is elegant with wood paneling, comfortable seating, and reasonable distance between the tables. The staff was outstanding as they helped us deal with a luggage mishap, even though we checked in around midnight, and the facilities for dealing with luggage mishaps were closed for the evening at the Edinburgh Airport. Perhaps the developers determined that a modern shower facility and air conditioning were areas where they could skimp. I'm sorry they made that decision as it turned an evening to which I had been looking forward into an "OK, but I'll not make an effort to stay there again" experience.
