Rutland Hotel

1–3 Rutland St., Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH1 2AE, Scotland

This building at the west end of Princes Street is thought to have been the residence of Sir Joseph Lister (1827–1912), who performed the world's first successful surgery carried out under anaesthetic, but no such harsh measures are needed to guarantee a good night's sleep at his old pad now that it's an acclaimed boutique hotel. Nominated for several style awards, the design is chic without being intimidating. Guest rooms have flamboyant fabrics and classic furnishings like Barcelona chairs. A luxury apartment provides a stylish and flexible option for a family or two couples traveling together. The gourmet steak restaurant is earning a fine reputation.
