Edinburgh's Former Holyrood Hotel Relaunches as Marriott Property

The former Holyrood Hotel in Scotland’s capital has relaunched as Edinburgh Marriott Hotel Holyrood, marking the completion of an extensive £10 million (approximately $12.68 million) refurbishment. Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic old town, the hotel, under new ownership, has been brought up to Marriott Hotel standards with an extensive refurbishment. Marriott’s signature style is found throughout all facets of the property and guests can now enjoy an enriched experience with modern spaces.

The guest journey begins with a welcome into the new Greatroom lobby. With space to connect, work, or unwind, this is a key feature of the refurbishment, comprising a bar, dining area and a lobby. It is well suited for guests and local residents alike to catch up over coffee or cocktails or dine from a locally sourced lunch and dinner menu as well as grazing and sharing platters. Afternoon tea is also served in the Greatroom.

The hotel’s Spa and Fitness Centre, with its heated pool, infrared sauna and fully equipped gym has also been fully renovated and upgraded for guests and members to enjoy.

The 160 guestrooms include Junior Suites and Deluxe and King rooms with wooden floors and walk-in showers, among other facilities. All rooms have spacious en-suites, cozy armchairs and 55-inch wall-mounted flat-screen TVs as standard. 

Media and event spaces have also been redesigned and fully equipped to offer excellent new meeting facilities in the city. Marriott’s M Club Lounge adds a new dimension to the hotel and is designed to recognize and reward Marriott Bonvoy’s Elite members. Platinum Elite, Titanium Elite and Ambassador Elite status members are able to enjoy 24/7 complimentary access to a private and exclusive space for every stay. 

Enjoying a prime location in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic old town, within the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Edinburgh Marriott Hotel is situated directly opposite the Scottish Parliament building, Dynamic Earth and Royal Holyroodhouse, the official residency of the monarchy in Scotland. Holyrood is not only a short walk from Edinburgh Waverley, it's also minutes from the historic Royal Mile, Arthur’s Seat and Holyrood Park.
