Overview

Traditional Scottish charm in a great location
Some rooms are small
InterContinental Edinburgh The George has played a part in the city's history since 1881. The property's charming architecture and prime location in New Town have lured many famous faces over the years, from 18th-century Scottish poet Robert Burns to actress Elizabeth Taylor. Five townhouses on George Street comprise the hotel, which positions guests about a half-mile north of the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle and other city attractions. Guests can choose from a range of accommodation types, such as an urban double or a one-bedroom suite, and each cozy room comes with free Wi-Fi access, a smart TV, a fully stocked minibar, and tea and coffee facilities. Past travelers enjoyed the hotel's classic Scottish elegance and the convenient city center location, but some noted small accommodations and a lack of air conditioning as drawbacks. The hotel's signature restaurant, The Printing Press, acknowledges the many authors and poets who visited the hotel throughout history by using vintage typewriters and Scottish novels as decor. The restaurant serves roast duck, aged beef, smoked haggis, a selection of puddings and other Scottish dishes. Those looking for a nightcap ought to swing by the bar, which stays open late and offers a wide variety of whisky, gin, beer and signature cocktails. What's more, IHG Rewards Club members will be happy to know they can earn and redeem points at this location.
