Rated 5 out of 5 by Broonalso Fantastic Stay
Everything was Perfect for this break over Christmas.
Staff were so helpful and friendly at ALL times.
Club rooms were beautiful. Club Lounge was the best I have been in.
Dinner in the restuarant was first class. The OneSpa (with the outdoor pool) was a fantastic round off to our short break

Rated 5 out of 5 by Coolio59 Beautiful Hotel
Recently remodeled and the rooms are beautiful; modern but still felt "Scottish." Great location, convenient to both new and old towns, Royal Mile, etc.. We walked everywhere, even in rain. The club lounge was wonderful. The concierges and the club hostess were great sources of information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ween Great Experience - would come back again
We had a great experience from the moment we arrived. The staff were friendly and helpful during our stay. Being a Platinum SPG member we were given superb service and upgrades. The spa was fabulous. We only had a short stay but would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Edinburgh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NFSIII Probably the best Sheraton in the world!
Another return to this fabulous hotel, my mood changed the instant I was greeted at the front door by Glen, luggage whisked away, car keys traded for the valet ticket, no line at checkin, rapidly to our Castle suite with a spectacular view of the Castle and Edinburgh. There are so many reasons to praise this hotel, others may have a different bias:
Great location - easy to access yet easy to walk to the shops and sites
Excellent property - internally well appointed subtly modern Scottish decor, clean and well presented (it's not much to look at externally!), always a great breakfast to set you up for the day, oh and the spa!
SPG recognition - consistently excellent with personal recognition from staff
Outstanding staff - a cross of cultures infused with Scottish warmth and hospitality.
In summary, probably the best Sheraton in world! (Disclaimer: I have a Scottish relatives!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by fastingb Excellent spa, very good room service and breakfast
Really enjoyed the room service - restaurant-quality Singapore noodles and raspberry crumble - and the full Scottish breakfast (cooked to order) was probably the best I have had.
The spa is excellent and I really enjoyed my swim in the large pool in the early morning.
Very comfy bed too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gina26 What a welcome!!
I lve staying at the Sheraton Grand because the minute I step through the door I am recognised as a frequent visitor and am welcomed by name, which makes it much more personal and comforting. Even staff who do not know me will go out of their ways to make sure I have everything I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KillerKitten25 A Rainy Weekend Met With Smiles
I spent a weekend in Edinburgh just to get away from the buzz of London. I always prefer to stay at a Sheraton hotel if I have the option as the level of service and hospitality is outstanding. This hotel was no exception.
The staff are unbelievably friendly- even when it is the dullest of days and the most horribly wet weather- they go above and beyond to meet your requirements. Every request I made, was answered within minutes. The food was superb and the late night dessert cravings I had were satisfied with the most delicious and fresh-tasting treats.
Even my annoying check-out time of 3am was met with smiles, a very warm and friendly disposition, and an immediate taxi waiting for me.
I can only fault one thing, the Spa which is something I was desperately looking forward to, was completely booked out for the weekend- I recommend you book any treatments well in advance or as soon as you book your stay, because I promise you will be disappointed otherwise.
A 5 out of 5 from me. Excellent service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrenTraveler Brand New, Great Location!
Loved this hotel, new and great location. Most modern hotel I've stayed in, with swipe keys and setting light options. Gorgeous decor, cozy, not overly metro feel I've found in new urban hotels. Hily recommend if visiting Edinburgh Castle, as it is just a short walk away.

Beautifully renovated hotel, modern and trendy decor, excellent food in restaurant, very friendly staff. Definitely recommend!
Rooms are on the small side but have every amenity you need. The glass bathroom walls mean that you will not have much privacy in the bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tommypomples Sheraton has everything you could possible want for a luxury weekend
Our overnight stay at the Sheraton was amazing. We all booked massages and this was indeed the best ever I've had!
The hotel staff were so attentive and so helpful and forever cheery. Lunch and breakfast were a highlight of our stay which we all hope to do very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Americanbusiness Everything great
This is probably the best Sheraton I've ever stayed at. It should be an example to Sheratons in North America. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was particularly impressive. Even in the lounge they remember who you are and ask questions about your day.

I had a fantastic stay at the Sheraton Grand in Edinburgh. The staff were all fantastic and welcoming. The Club room and lounge facilities were a great idea and I am really glad I chose this option. The Spa was outstanding too. Thank you Sheraton for a great stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JC00 Great value: Location and Service
I stayed in a Castle view room on the Club floor of this hotel. The view of the Castle is wonderful. The Castle view rooms face onto Festival Square. Every day there seemed to be interesting events there (large screen TV coverage of the paraolympics, special classical music concert, etc.) Originally, I wondered if this would be a noise problem, but it wasn't at all a problem. The service in the Club lounge was great. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Very good hors d'oeuvres in the evening--not a full meal, but very nice snacks before going out to dinner. It was nice that the lounge continued to be open on the weekend, unlike many hotel lounges in the US these days. The continental breakfast was also very good. The service of the staff tending to the rooms was excellent. When we asked them to come back to our room at a more convenient time for room cleaning or evening turn down service they politely accommodated and returned exactly when asked. In short the small extra cost for the Club level room was well worth the investment.

We had a wonderful 10th anniversary at Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa, would love to come back next year, not going to wait another 10 years for the wonderful experience. My Aunt is coming from Canada in July so hope to come for a Spa visit. Many thanks

Just the relaxing break we needed. As you would expect perfect. My husband and I went the hotel during the renovations and never enjoyed our stay however renovations complete and the hotel is back to its top class position. Everything was wonderful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nicola81 great rooms, very busy spa
stayed for one night as an anniversary treat in club room. The room was lovely great facilities and a very very comfortable bed. We were left a bit disappointed in the spa however. i booked my space a couple of days prior to arriving and was again prompted to do so at check in desk. It didnt seem to make a difference however as the spa was so busy that they didnt have any watches for us meaning we couldnt pass between the pool and thermal area, we had also not been shown about which left us wondering around trying to orientate using the maps on the walls. the hydropool was also experiencing heating issues.
On a positive note the club lounge was great, the staff werwe really really great. Very helpful and cheery, the canapes were outstanding and the quality of drinks was also pleasing, definately worth upgrading. The breakfast was also of good quality however we were charged for the incorrect type of breakfast so be wary of your bill.
overall a good hotel stayhowever expected that little bit more from the facilites considering the price

I stayed in that hotel for almost a week and was greatly impressed with the staff attitude and service.
Hotel room was wide and clean with all you need to make your stay enjoyable (shower and bath tube for instance).
Definitely a hotel to recommend

After working in the travel industry for over 30 years I am fairly critical.
The Sheraton Edinbught surpassed my expectations. Excellent facilities, most likely one of the best spas I have ever been in and friendly staff made my stay excellent.

This was our second time staying at this hotel and the experience did not disappoint.
Great staff and location. An in room coffee machine of some sort would have been the icing on the cake. No a fan of the instant variety that is offered.

The Hotel is well situated for the key areas of the city centre. 5 minutes to the end of Princess street, opposite the Castle and the Festival Hall.
External appearance not very inspiring, quite neutral blending into surrounding offices.

While a modern and rather non-descript building it provides guests with well planned and convenient facilities. Found staff to be committed, attentive and anticipating our needs. Nice view of One Square, Usher Hall and the Castle

Loved this hotel, it was quite expensive but you get what you pay for. Loved our room looking over festival square also looking onto Edinburgh castle. My only problem was I wish I spent more time to enjoy this wonderful hotel.

This place is just as Lovely and Elegant as it appears. We stayed for 4 days as the last part of our European experience and found this Hotel to be the best part of our trip. Wish they had them everywhere!!!
We were very impressed with the staff, always smiling and helpful, especially impressed with a waitress named Lilly, that we meet in the restaurant/bar. She was very courteous, concerned and prompt. She made the stay that much more enjoyable. The value for the price was unparalleled. the proximity to everything is unbeatable. If you are ever in Edinburgh you owe it to yourself to give it a try..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacobs Amazing stay at Sheraton
First time in Edinburgh and Sheraton here. We enjoyed every minute. The staff were extremely professional and friendly. Food, room and bar supergood. The gym was also very good. I will especially point out Peter in the bar. He was truly one of the best. We stayed many more hours in the bar just because of him and the fantastic Espresso Martini.
We will for sure come back to this hotel. Highly recommended.
