Romantic Adults-Only Hotel in Edinburgh

Walking Distance to Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre

Couples on a romantic retreat will fall in love with the adults-only The Place hotel. Several area attractions are within walking distance, which means you'll save on transportation costs. Consider having a date night at the Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre, where you can see a variety of live musical performances, or take a leisurely afternoon stroll through the Princes Street Gardens. Here you'll come across such monuments as the Royal Scots Memorial and the Scott Monument. 

Create a Must-See List

With so many famous attractions in Edinburgh, you'll want to create a must-see list to fit them all in. Sign up for a tour of Edinburgh Castle, take pictures in front of St. Giles' Cathedral, or climb to the top of Outlook Tower, now referred to as Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, to experience a unique view of the city. Don't forget to schedule some time to do souvenir shopping at the Princes Mall, as well as time for exercising and dining at the Omni Centre Edinburgh.

Luxury Four-Star Hotel Accommodations

When you select The Place for your next stay in Edinburgh, you'll enjoy luxury four-star accommodations. Not only is the front desk open 24-hours per day to assist you with any special requests, but a friendly concierge team is ready to help you book a nearby tour, make restaurant reservations, and secure tickets to an evening show. If you want to explore the area before check-in, the hotel also offers to store your luggage. Need to store a few valuables during your stay? Rent one of the safe deposit boxes through the front desk.

Enjoy Complimentary Wireless Internet Service

Each of the 47 smoke-free guest rooms and suites is equipped with complimentary wireless Internet service, so you'll never lose touch with friends and family back home. While in your room, you'll also be able to brew a fresh cup of tea in the coffeemaker, blow dry your hair after a hot shower, and complete a few office tasks at the work desk. Guests will also have access to a digital television, a telephone, and an iron with ironing board.

The Bottom Line

You can't beat The Place hotel when it comes to meals. The on-site restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a relaxing atmosphere. There's even an on-site cocktail bar for winding down after a long day.
