Spend Your Free Time Searching for the Perfect Souvenir

If you're looking for an Edinburgh waterfront hotel, you can't beat the Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh Waterfront. You'll find Ocean Terminal and all of its 85 stores are situated next to the hotel. When you're not busy browsing for souvenirs, you can dine in one of the terminal's six restaurants or three coffee shops. Travelers will also be able to watch a movie at Vue Cinema, or indulge in a little pampering at Pure Spa & Beauty.

Explore the Best of Edinburgh, Scotland, Great Britain

While in town, put a few of these attractions on your must-see list. Stop by Edinburgh Castle for a character reenactment or take a walk through the Princes Street Gardens, where you'll come across the Scott Monument, the Ross Fountain, and the Scottish American War Memorial. The National Museums Scotland is the spot for viewing everything from prehistoric jewelry to artifacts from the medieval time period.

Eco-Friendly Accommodations

As an IHG Green Engage Hotel, travelers can rest assured that the Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh Waterfront does its part to protect and care for the environment. The hotel is happy to supply a complimentary hot breakfast buffet each morning to get your day started off right, as well as a Great Room, which has a wide selection of coffee for that early morning pick-me-up. During the day, guests can log on to the free Wi-Fi service or stop by the hotel bar for a refreshing glass of wine.  

Choose Your Pillow

Each of the 145 smoke-free guest rooms comes with your choice of either a firm pillow, or a soft one. When you're ready to relax, you can watch a movie on the 32-inch flat-screen television, while a work desk with lamp for extra lighting provides you with a quiet place to get some work done. If you realize you neglected to pack an important toiletry item, the hotel's Forgotten Something Promise has you covered. Finally, the Holiday Inn Express offers a few pet-friendly rooms, as well as family rooms that can accommodate a party of four.

The Bottom Line

When it comes to affordable accommodations with top-notch amenities, you can't beat the Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh Waterfront. Not only are guests near prime Edinburgh attractions, but the 24-hour front desk staff is also ready to provide tour and ticket assistance.
