Hilton Edinburgh Carlton wins Business Hotel of the Year at Scottish Hotel Awards

Hilton Edinburgh Carlton has been awarded Business Hotel of the Year 2017 (Edinburgh & Lothians) at the regional Scottish Hotel Awards. The hotel batted off stiff competition to win the coveted prize and in so-doing has secured a nomination for the national Hotel of the Year award – dubbed the “Scottish hotel Oscars” -  due to be announced in April this year.

The award, which is known for its thorough assessment, is real feather-in-the-cap of the newly renovated hotel, who has invested millions of pounds into their offering for business and corporate clients. The iconic Edinburgh hotel, situated just off the historic Royal Mile, has received £17 million of investment and re-launched in August 2016 as the sixteenth hotel in Hilton’s Scottish portfolio. The hotel is owned and operated by Amaris Hospitality.  

Claire Livingston, General Manager at Hilton Edinburgh Carlton, said: "We are absolutely delighted to receive this wonderful award which highlights the positive journey the hotel has made. It is such an exciting time at Hilton Edinburgh Carlton, which has been transformed and restored to its illustrious stature and now offers top-notch meetings and events facilities for our business guests.”  

The hotel has been lovingly refurbished to return the Grade B listed building to all its glory. Every space has been transformed, including renovations of all 211 bedrooms, the addition of a Marco Pierre White Steakhouse and Grill and the refurbishment of events spaces.  

A significant amount of the investment has been dedicated to the hotel’s seven exclusive meeting spaces and break-out areas, including the Highland Suite with its panoramic views across the city through gothic-style high arch windows and ceilings.  

The conference and events areas have been renovated with the MICE market in mind.  The seven meeting and function rooms, located on the first floor, have been designed to be highly flexible spaces equipped with contemporary comfortable furnishings and modern meeting technology, including; the latest AV equipment, a built-in PA system, LCD projection screens, LED TVs and complimentary WiFi, meaning they can be utilised for presentations, meetings or events and can accommodate up to 220 guests.
