    Edinburgh’s most luxurious boutique hotel will relaunch under Autograph Collection hotels by Marriott following a refurbishment.Marking its ten year anniversary since opening, The Glasshouse will reveal its fresh artistic interiors in July, which includes transformation of all its bedrooms and public spaces, including The Snug lounge and bar, The Observatory and roof top garden, all linked with a subtle arts and theatrical theme.

    In addition, the lobby will feature a large bespoke canvas of the famous Capital’s skyline by Edinburgh-based artist Claire Heminsley, and the mezzanine area will open as an exclusive art gallery showcasing some of Scotland’s finest contemporary artists.

    The three-month refurbishment began in March and will be revealed at a launch party, which will also mark its new status as the first Scottish member of the Autograph Collection.

    Alison Mathewson, General Manager of The Glasshouse, said: “We’re delighted to showcase the new look hotel. Located next to the famous Edinburgh Playhouse theatre and opposite the birthplace of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Glasshouse is in the cultural heart of the city centre.

    “The creative inspiration behind the redesign focuses on the artistic world – incorporating art, dance, theatre, and literature – and is reflected in the colours, ambience and style we have chosen for our guests.

    “It has been an exciting time for us with the refurbishment, joining Autograph Collection hotels and a nation-wide wedding venue award win, all within the last few months, so this launch will be the icing on the cake.”
