InterContinental Edinburgh The George

This luxury hotel is in the heart of the Scottish capital. The InterContinental Edinburgh The George offers an excellent experience for both leisure and business travelers. The hotel has a rich heritage dating back to the 18th Century. It also blends traditional Scottish architecture with contemporary charm. This makes it a coveted destination for those seeking a unique stay. Join us as we delve into the features and amenities that distinguish The George as a leading hotel in Edinburgh.

Overview

The InterContinental Edinburgh The George has been welcoming hotel guests since 1881. At its heart are five listed Georgian townhouses, built in 1775 as homes for Edinburgh's most prosperous citizens. It sits in the UNESCO World Heritage area of Edinburgh. This is also a city rich with culture and beauty.

Susan Ferrier is proud of her connections to literary giants like Robbie Burns and Sir Walter Scott. She's also Scotland's Jane Austin. She invites you to experience the charm of the hotel rooms and gardens.

Moreover, the elegant building has been home to curious guests since its inception. This includes the Scottish author Sir Walter Scott and Scottish poet Robert Burns. Susan Ferrier lived in one of the houses. Hollywood's Elizabeth Taylor and Kylie Minogue continued celebrity endorsements here.

InterContinental Edinburgh The George is the latest addition to the historic buildings. They were once used for gracious living. This hotel is full of charm and stories. It is in New City, a neoclassical city built in the 18th Century to accommodate the growing population of Edinburgh. The district has also been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. It uniquely blends medieval organic growth and town planning from the 18th and 19th centuries.

Royal Mile Location

The hotel is close to the cobbled streets with many restaurants and bars in Edinburgh's main luxury shopping area. Most attractions are within walking distance. Moreover, trams and bus stops are only five minutes away. There are also rooms with Edinburgh Castle views. This makes them ideal for Festival fireworks and Hogmanay.

Style and Character

The hotel has a softly tailored look in shades like oak, smoke, and mist, with leather accents. The attention to detail and the quality of materials used are worth noting. There are also graceful references made to the history of literature in the building. There's also a charmingly creaking floor and a kilted butler.

Service and Facilities

The service is outstanding, and this extends to the lobby. There, you can enjoy an afternoon tea while reading the paper. With resistance and cardio machines, you can burn off all that cake in the gym. You can also borrow hair straighteners or mobile phone chargers from the reception. There is also a small corner store if you still need to bring essentials. Moreover, there is a 24-hour room-service menu. It includes a full breakfast as well as light meals and snacks.

InterContinental The George also provides 24-hour reception and housekeeping services. Plus, there is a dry cleaning and ironing service. A 24-hour concierge is also available. The hotel also offers a convenient gym to keep your fitness on point during your stay.

Rooms and Suites

There are 240 guest rooms at Intercontinental Edinburgh the George. There are many rooms with classic Georgian style in the old townhouses, but you should pay attention to the Fourth Wing. Rooms on the upper floors also have a great view of the Firth and the rest of the city. From the soft tweeds to the lavish velvets, everything is subtly sophisticated. Bathrooms with bright white tiles and black taps are also a great way to create a classic feel.

The InterContinental Edinburgh takes its color palette from 19th-century Scottish landscape paintings. That's Highland glens, forest ferns, and mountain heathers. Cool in tone but materially rich, the rooms also provide homely comfort with luxurious treats.

Dining

InterContinental Edinburgh The George also has a wide range of delicious dining options. They want you to experience the best Edinburgh can offer, but you must also take advantage of the great food and drink available.
