Rated 5 out of 5 by Eli23 Holy crap is this a nice hotel!
Exceeded my expectations. Nicest Starwood property I have stayed in, and I've stayed in about 10 in the U.S. Apparently, it's undergone a renovation and it shows! I loved the oversize tub, the ability to choose the bathroom uplight color, seeing my name scroll on the TV, and the ability to change the lighting mood from the bedside as well as from the door. Oh, and the two entrances to the bathroom - nice! Only problems were waiting at the front desk with no staff in sight. But when the employee got there, he was very nice. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Note that this is a bit of a walk to Old Town (if that's where you're going) but not too bad. There are certainty other hotels closer, but probably not as nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by santri1969 Perfect Edinburgh location
Stayed couple of times at the Sheraton Edinburgh and was upgraded so good SPG Platinum benefits, wonderful bar with a huge scotch selection, and good walking Edinburgh access.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobLV Our Stay
We loved our stay at the hotel. It was near the train station and is near the hop-on/hop-off bus line and a airport express bus stop. The room was roomy, comfortable, and modern. The restaurant food is excellent but expensive. The bar is very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Coz1 Great Hotel Poor Bar
The room was excellent and the view of Edinburgh Castle was brilliant. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were very helpful.
The only negative aspect was the refusal to open the bar for residents at 12:30am on my 2nd night. We were able to order room service and have it brought down to the bar though?? Lacking in customer service considering the group I was with were all sober and only wanted a couple of beers together. This didn't spoil our stay but was dissapointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by John2727 Greedy to charge extra for sauna usage
The facitiaties are not included in room rate! The Cleopatra Baths were out of order. I wouldn’t consider a sauna a spa treatment and would not expect to be charged £30 per head for the what is inclusive in 99.9% of all other hotels of a similar standard.
It’s really very disappointing indeed.
I could understand managing demand by booking allocating times for guests on arrival or charging for peak periods but to charge for a accessing a sauna is not fitting with what I had expected from the Sheraton group.
I doubt I will be back as long as that policy exists. I think is greedy to ask for that on top of the room rate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lil88 The best Sheraton
As a starwood platinum member I've stayed at many Sheraton properties, and this is by far one of the best. The castle view suite was pretty much perfect in every way. The staff were outstanding and breakfast was a favourite of my husband's. in fact the kitchen went out their way to find something which was requested and not available on the first day. Staff in the lounge were professional and made good recommendations. We look forward to being back..
