|Suites are known for their Scottish details, such as monochromatic tartan walls.|
In Edinburgh, the Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa is celebrating its silver anniversary this year, and its spa is celebrating its 10th anniversary. To stay contemporary after 25 years, the hotel’s 269 rooms are undergoing a refurbishment that should be finished this month. The bathrooms have been expanded, and light flows throughout the space via frosted glass and sliding doors.
Hi-tech Touch: The Media Hub in each room lets guests hook up their own electronic gadgetry like they would at home. They can look at their camera’s photos on the room’s 37-inch TV, or use Bluetooth to stream their favorite music to the in-room stereo from their laptops or mobile phones. (There’s also a USB charger for gadgets.)
Cool Detail: The hotel’s 10 suites are all unique, with custom-designed monochrome tartans for a traditional-yet-classic feel. For families and groups, the Grand Suite has a private lobby and two full bedrooms with such touches as a walk-in wardrobe, a rainforest shower, double sinks, a Bose sound system and Bisazza tiles.
The hotel also has the largest city-center spa in Europe, spread out over five floors using both indoor and outdoor space, including a thermal suite and a Hydropool on the rooftop. Luxury travel advisors can contact Assistant Director of Sales Fiona Soeder (firstname.lastname@example.org).
