A 16th-century facade highlighted by a turret gives the Radisson Blu Hotel the appearance of a Scottish castle. Its location in the heart of Edinburgh's Royal Mile provides guests with easy access to many Scottish landmarks such as the Scotch Whiskey Heritage Center, the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament. The hotel's 238 elegant guestrooms are all equipped with free Wi-Fi, and guests have access to an indoor pool, spa and fitness center.

The Gaelic interpretation for "Balmoral" is "majestic dwelling," which is appropriate for the award-winning hotel that is over a century old. In 2015, The Balmoral was selected as the best Scottish hotel from Hotel of the Year Awards, received Tripadvisor's Certificate of Excellence and garnered Scottish Hotel Awards' restaurant manager of the year recognition. It is located in the city center near the train station that it was originally built to serve.

The Premiere Inn is a moderately priced hotel that is located outside of the city center in a quiet neighborhood. Guests may have a little longer downtown transit, but the budget hotel offers free Wi-Fi in every guest room with higher speed upgrades available for an additional fee.
