    Hilton Worldwide, in partnership with Redefine|BDL Hotels, has unveiled its newest DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Scotland and the brand’s first in the country’s dynamic capital with the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh City Centre. Located on Bread Street, the former St Cuthbert’s Co-Operative building, which dates back to 1892 and went on to become The Point Hotel, has been transformed, following a £4.2 million renovation managed by Scottish-based hotel management company, Redefine|BDL Hotels. The new hotel joins 21 DoubleTree by Hilton properties currently trading in the UK and will be operated by Redefine|BDL Hotels.

    The 138 guestroom property is located in Edinburgh’s historic old town, within easy walking distance of the famous tourist attractions and shopping hotspots of the Royal Mile and Princes Street. With its magnificent domed roof, brasserie style restaurant and exclusive, top floor penthouse, offering views of Edinburgh Castle, the newly renovated hotel is set to become one of the city’s most sought after destination venues.

    Dining options include the intimate “Monboddo” bar, and the “Bread Street Brasserie”, the hotel’s award-winning restaurant which serves a range of dishes with an emphasis on freshness and flavour. In addition, on the first Thursday of every month, the hotel transforms its Penthouse venue into a Skybar, Edinburgh’s best kept secret, where guests and locals can marvel at the panoramic views of the city, cocktail in hand. The hotel also has a 24-hour fitness centre with cardio equipment and free weights.
