Recent guest reviews

I was travelling with my mother and infant daughter. This hotel is amazing--perfect location--close to everything, but quiet and out of the way. Excellent breakfast, extremely quiet hotel, spacious rooms, attentive staff. Highly recommend.

First time at this hotel and it will not be the last! The location is great, very friendly staff, rooms are spacious and clean, they have a nice breakfast, the gym is very small, but there is a full fledged gym for a small fee and is only a five minute walk.

The hotel is in an excellent location for exploring Edinburgh, especially if travelling with your pet. It is located a short walk from Waverly train station and there are many places to see, eat, and drink within a short walk. We brought our dog with us and the hotel is conveniently located near a large park. There is a Sainsbury local a couple of minutes away if you want to buy any food to prepare in the room. There is no A/C, so I imagine it could get quite warm in the summer.

This hotel is only about a 10 minute walk from the heart of Edinburgh and steps away from Edinburgh University. We found the staff to be very kind and helpful. The rooms were perfect for our needs (3 night stay). The complimentary breakfast included what you would expect: pastries, cereal, coffee, eggs, etc. and it was all fresh. We would stay here again!

We stayed in this hotel during a 2 day trip to Edinburgh. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to Princes Street. It is very clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful. I wasn't very impressed with the breakfast area in the entrance lobby, it seemed to be an after thought and the breakfast was ok but nothing special. Our room was very spacious and the bed gave me the 2 best nights sleep I have had in a long time. There is building work next to the hotel but it didn't bother us. Overall a good hotel but certainly not the best Marriott I have stayed in.

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days in early Oct., and loved it. Rooms are very spacious and nice (even by U.S. standards), location is convenient, and it includes a free daily breakfast/brunch. The breakfast is good with lots of options (eggs, bacon, fruit, cheese, cereal, etc.) It's a quiet area and close to some restaurants, grocery store, and even a Starbucks. It's a quick/easy walk to the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, and anything in Old Town. Staff is nice and helpful. Overall it's a nice hotel, great location, and good value for the money!

This hotel is in a good location, right behind The Meadows in Edinburgh. Although it is a hotel, it seems like a cross between an apartment and a hotel. The room we were in, was on the top floor with an outdoor balcony and a small kitchen area, allowing you the freedom to make some food in your room if you liked. The room was a good size, with a large double bed as well as a sofa/seating area and a desk. Comfortable bed, made for a nice relaxing sleep. The room was in a good state of repair, though I think the hotel is till quite new. The TV signal however was terrible, and had constant lines of static through it. Breakfast is included which includes fruit, cereals and some hot food, which was all tasty however the seating area to eat breakfast in is quite small, and certainly not large enough for all the rooms. At busy times, there is no where to seat so I took breakfast back to the room to eat, and being on the top floor with only 1 slow lift, it wasn't as warm as it could be by the time I got around to eating it. Parking is also quite expensive, though being in the center of town it is everywhere, and a little complicated to find the entrance to the car park. Despite the few niggles, I would happily stay here again.

Stayed in a 1 bedroom suite for 4 nights during the Fringe Festival. The room was clean and well-equipped, the hot & cold breakfast was of good quality and provided lots of choices, and the hotel was quiet at night. (Note: The Quartermile is still being developed and construction @ the building across the way started around 7:30 AM weekdays during our stay). Front desk staff very helpful with directions and arranging taxis. We selected this hotel because of the in-room kitchen facilities (very rare in Scottish hotels) + the hotel's proximity to many Fringe Festival venues. Starbucks and a small grocery store within a 3 minute walk a bonus! The hotel is also only a 10 minute walk to the National Museum of Scotland (a great place to visit + one of the hop-on, hop-off spots for Edinburgh bus tours). Tips: 1) The hotel is NOT air-conditioned, although fans are provided and you can open the windows. 2) The hotel is not in the main tourist area (Princes St. and area). 3) There are some restaurants in the Quartermile development + within easy walking distance in the surrounding neighbourhood.

Stayed for two nights using my Marriott reward points and being a platinum member received an upgrade even without asking. Parking in the adjacent underground car park was also complimentary due to my membership level so a great start on checking in 👍 Staff were very friendly and the studio room was great, looked still relatively new and well maintained, upgrade was to a one bedroom studio and this was very spacious. Well appointed small kitchen area with oven, fridge, dishwasher and kettle - so all good. Bed was very comfortable and resulted in a good nights sleep. Breakfast is in reception area but is separated well enough to make it work - very good selection and my wife is vegetarian and was well catered for. There is construction work ongoing on an adjacent site but this stopped around 6 pm and didn’t restart until 07:45 so was not an issue - we as with most guests spend all day in town sightseeing anyway. Would definitely come back in future and would gladly recommend this lovely hotel to other TA visitors.

My spouse and I are both Marriott Gold members, we are staying for 3 nights, this is a wonderful property, excellent breakfast, well-located near University of Edinburgh and easy walking distance to National Museum of Scotland (GREAT exhibit on Bonnie Prince Charlie). Wonderful property, great to have a kitchen, refrigerator, access to free laundry, plus a living room with a nice couch that would easily accommodate a third person up to 6’ or so!! Great job, Marriott!!
