Channings Review

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.
