The Howard Review

This hotel is in a classic New Town building, elegant proportioned and superbly outfitted. Plush fabrics, antique furnishings, and original art throughout make the Howard feel like a swank private club. You can expect the most upscale services, including private butlers. Some of the best rooms overlook the garden. Afternoon teas are served in the lounge, while the restaurant has an appealing menu starring quality Scots produce.
