We rebranded The Point Hotel in Edinburgh to a DoubleTree by Hilton

Originally 3 separate buildings completed between 1892 and 1937, incorporating the first glass curtain wall in Scotland, these were combined and converted to a boutique hotel in the late 90’s. We worked hard to ensure the external character of this grade A listed building was retained, while skilfully negotiating with City of Edinburgh Planning Department to gain approval for DoubleTree branded signage.

All 139 guestrooms have been completely refurbished with a warm and comfortable design. Traditional tweed fabrics are mixed with luxurious velvets and dark timber, zebra print inspired carpet and bespoke light fittings add a hint of glamour. The lobby, restaurant, bar and conference suite have all been re-configured and re-fitted with a new gym created on the 4th floor. The interior draws heavily on the building’s history with Art Deco motifs woven throughout, in carpets, mirrors and decorative screens. The colour palette is warm with accent colours of vibrant purple and teal. On the ground floor, The Monboddo Bar has been completely transformed into a vibrant busy cocktail bar. The restaurant has been given a brasserie feel while the Sky Bar — with stunning views over the castle — has been given a touch of 1980s glamour.

The floor-to-ceiling panoramic glass transforms Edinburgh’s skyline into an almost cinematic experience — with the view dominated by nearby Edinburgh Castle.

The SKYBar at the DoubleTree by Hilton offers the perfect view of Edinburgh Castle and surrounding areas — it's rated as one of Edinburgh's best rooftop bars.
