Fodor's Review

Once a seamen's hostel, Edinburgh's link in the pioneering boutique hotel chain draws a refined clientele. A dramatic black-and-taupe color scheme prevails in the public areas. King-size beds, CD players, free Wi-Fi, and digital TVs fill the bedrooms. Tartan designs and shades of heather dominate the standard rooms, while suites have bolder fabrics and colors. The French theme of the hotel is emphasized in the bar and brasserie.
