Hotel Missoni Edinburgh

As we reported last month, Rezidor and the Missoni fashion brand have pulled the plug on the Hotel Missoni, announcing a mutual decision to “to terminate the worldwide Master Licence Agreement.” Hotel aficionados have been curious about what’s in store for the existing hotels, like the property in Edinburgh which has attracted a star clientele in its six-year life.

A recent article in The Edinburgh Evening News has the skinny. The hotel will be rebranded at the end of June, remaining in Rezidor’s portfolio, and the staff will stay onboard. General Manager Carina Svensen was quoted as saying: “We will continue to operate as a five-star hotel, offering an experience that will reflect our local culture here in Scotland. We will still be a design hotel at heart, in an enviable location in the capital city and all of our beautiful interiors, style, five-star level of guest service, management team, staff and our ethos will remain.”

Previously housing offices from the Scottish Parliament, the building was lauded by the Civic Trust for its “high quality design.” The Hotel Missoni brought a sense of style and glamour to the location, explains the newspaper. If the staff and service standards remain the same, the hotel will most likely keep its reputation even as it rebrands.
