W Edinburgh

The W Edinburgh, an intriguing extension of the iconic W Hotels brand, has recently opened its doors in the UK’s picturesque capital city. This latest jewel in the portfolio of Marriott Bonvoy, a global network of over 30 exceptional hotel brands, embodies an extraordinary blend of bold design, exclusive events and legendary Whatever/Whenever™ service.

Unique design and first-class location

The W Edinburgh spans three impressive buildings in the revitalised St James Quarter in the heart of the city. It represents a unique fusion of Scottish culture and history with a modern twist. As part of this vibrant neighbourhood, the hotel offers guests and locals an extensive day and night programme that is unrivalled in Edinburgh’s famous festival scene.

Innovative hospitality meets cultural diversity

George Fleck, Vice President and Global Brand Leader at W Hotels, emphasises that the opening of the W Edinburgh not only marks the brand’s entry into the Scottish market, but also underlines its growing presence in the UK. The hotel offers a culturally rich offering and an innovative design that adds a touch of playfulness and sophistication to the Edinburgh cityscape. It invites locals and travellers to discover the city from a new perspective that is typical of the W brand.

Regional design concept with a global touch

The design of the W Edinburgh, created by Jestico + Whiles, combines Scottish tradition with modern, local influences and creative collaborations. The interior design, inspired by the natural elements of the city built on volcanic rock, combines the elements of fire and water to create unique contrasts. From the spectacular terraces of the twelve-storey Ribbon Building, guests can enjoy a 360° view of the city, while the historic James Craig Walk and the newly built Quarter House impress with their architecture.

Exclusive suites and culinary experiences

The Extreme Wow Suite, W’s interpretation of the Presidential Suite, offers luxurious comfort with a hint of Edinburgh’s volcanic origins. The hotel sets new culinary standards: the SUSHISAMBA restaurant fuses Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, while the W Lounge and João’s Place offer innovative Gaelic and international dishes.

Varied activities and relaxation

In addition to first-class event rooms and the Sound Suite for musicians and podcasters, the W Edinburgh offers excellent opportunities for relaxation with the Away® Spa and the FIT® fitness centre. Ishga, a Scottish cosmetics company, is a partner of the spa and incorporates the beneficial properties of organic algae extracts from the Hebridean Islands into the wellness programmes.

The W Edinburgh is a prime example of how the W Hotels brand creates places around the world that are simply unforgettable. Here, Scottish culture is not only celebrated, but also characterised by a cosmopolitan charm. This hotel is much more than just a place to spend the night. With its unique personality and numerous experience options, it exceeds the expectations of guests from all over the world and locals alike. It’s a place that stays with you – a real experience that you won’t forget in a hurry.
