Fodor's Expert Review The Scotsman

20 N. Bridge, Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH1 1TR, Scotland

This magnificent turn-of-the-20th-century building, with its grand marble staircase and its fascinating history—it was once the headquarters of the Scotsman newspaper—now houses this modern luxury hotel. Dark wood, earthy colors, tweeds, and contemporary furnishings decorate the individually designed rooms and public spaces. For peace and quiet, ask for an upper-story room with a view. The hotel serves a lovely afternoon tea and has a chic bar, but you will need to head out for dinner.
