Channings

12–16 S. Learmonth Gardens, Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH4 IEZ, Scotland

Five Edwardian terraced town houses make up this intimate, elegant hotel in an upscale West End neighborhood just minutes from Princes Street. Beyond the clubby, oak-paneled lobby lounge are quiet guest rooms with well-chosen antiques and marble baths. North-facing rooms have fine views of Fife. Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton lived here, hence the fascinating photos in three suites. Channings Restaurant offers Scottish and Continental cooking.
