Hotel Features.
Called The Scotsman Hotel because it once housed the Victorian offices of The Scotsman newspaper, this majestic building was restored and converted to a boutique hotel in 2001. Original period features blend with contemporary art and furniture in the oak-paneled lobby to provide guests with a grand welcome. North Bridge Brasserie serves regional cuisine and is known for its marble pillars and wood paneling complemented by a dramatic steel floor and staircase. Flexible event spaces at the hotel include 8 meeting rooms, a private cinema, and a drawing room. Free WiFi and a 24-hour business center are also available to guests. The Scotsman Spa has treatment rooms, an indoor pool, aerobics studio, sauna, steam room, and fitness facilities.

The Scotsman Hotel's 69 guestrooms combine modern, neutral tones with tweed fabrics. Serving hatches mean that room service need not disturb guests. Rooms have climate control, free WiFi, minibars, safes, tea/coffee making facilities, and coffee tables with inset Edinburgh Monopoly boards.
