The George Hotel Edinburgh Description
The George Hotel in Edinburgh is an establishment that will stand out to tourists because of its great facilities, room options, location and grandeur. This 4 star, 18th century hotel was once the accommodation of choice for such famous names as Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Elizabeth Taylor, it was also the winner of Best Hotel in Edinburgh at the 2009 Scottish Hotel Awards and it is still seen as a great base for tourists because of its close proximity to the shops, gardens, landmarks and transportation systems of the city – Waverly Train Station being just minutes away.
Within this grand Victorian hotel are 249 rooms and suites of varying size and function, although all of them – from the standard double room to the grandest suite – guarantee the very best in modern décor and facilities. Each room offers an en-suite, plasma TV and wi-fi access, but the ‘deluxe double sea view’ room has the added benefits of a modern bathroom and views of the Firth of Forth while the grander suite with city views provides such luxuries as a king size bed, bathrobe and slippers, iPod docking station and his and hers basins. Additionally, all guests can enjoy 24 room service from the Tempus Bar and Restaurant, an award-winning, on-site dining experience that offers cocktails and contemporary dining with local Scottish ingredients.
Finally, the hotel openly welcomes visitors with different needs. This includes couples who are simply looking to enjoy the sights of the city, the Scottish National Gallery being close by and the famous Edinburgh Castle just 1.4km away; wedding parties looking to take advantage of the high-end catering service – for up to 300 people – and event suites; or a corporation looking to hire out one of the many conference rooms, which are also wi-fi enabled. Whichever option that guests choose and whatever their purpose in the city, they are guaranteed to find what they need at the George Hotel in Edinburgh.
