Discreetly charming, The Howard represents another one of Edinburgh's hotels favoured by guests who appreciate quality.

From the team of professional Butlers to the housekeeping staff, there's an air of quiet professionalism as the staff go about their day-to-day business.

In the drawing room of this Georgian Townhouse which occupies three buildings, there's a hushed ambiance as guests read their newspapers or simply enjoy a cup of tea, poured by the Butler, of course!

Faded grandeur perhaps sums up the interiors of this well-established venue, perfectly suited to weddings, private dining and business meetings.

In the rooms, of which there are just 18, elegance blends with opulence and no two rooms look the same.

In the bathrooms, there's sumptuous roll-top baths and spacious showers complete with all the accessories you would expect from a hotel of this standard.

The location is set a few streets back from Princes Street, meaning it is right on the doorstep of all the amenities you could possibly require while being far enough away to guarantee a relative degree of peace and quiet.

To sum up, The Howard represents the perfect venue for a luncheon, a wedding or a decadent escape from the daily grind.

The Howard, in New Town and minutes from Princes Street, has a quiet air of refinement and exclusivity. Staff are extremely professional and can see to your every need. The restaurant is intimate and afternoon tea, served by your personal butler, should not be missed. It is a popular venue for weddings, which can spill out into the common areas, so you may wish to retreat to your room or go out to explore the area. Well situated for the newly-reopened National Portrait Gallery.

With only 18 very exclusive rooms stepping into The
Howard Hotel feels like taking a step back in time. This hotel is very exclusive and cozy with Butler Service who will give you all the attention you desire. They will take in your luggage, unpack and pack them, serve tea and coffee.

There is also a very small restaurant which you can sit in all night long if you wish, which gives your special night a relaxing vibe.

There are two beautiful and well-appointed apartments. One of them has a door onto the terrace. This means that you come and go as you please which guarantees full privacy, especially for families or those who don't want to use the main entrance.

I would definitely go back to The Howard.
