When the 170-year-old Lady Glenorchy Church was converted into The Glasshouse Hotel in 2003, Scotland exchanged one iconic piece of history for another. With 77 bedrooms, this is a standout among luxury boutique hotels and is considered one of the finest places to stay in Edinburgh. This historic luxury hotel in Edinburgh features cosy-contemporary interiors, warm Scottish service and consistently spectacular views of the city centre, Calton Hill or the hotel’s two-acre rooftop garden.

This is a beautiful hotel. Modern and stylish as you will see from my photos and at Christmas time I really thought the lobby was very elegant. Rooms are spacious. Sumptuous bed and large bathroom with underfloor heating. Staff were universally helpful and reception and the breakfast room staff incredibly attentive. If you are having breakfast the continental at 15 pounds is pricey for what it is. The danish pastries and croissants were fine but nothing to write home about. The smoked salmon which I had with scrambled egg for my cooked breakfast however was excellent and worth the extra 10 pounds. The roof garden is magnificent and large and has breathtaking views up to Carlton Hill and down onto the city. A great place for a wedding. The snug bar is also beautiful and I still cannot work out how the open fire appears to be burning on water. Situated right next to the Playhouse and Omni centre and opposite John Lewis and St Mary's Cathedral and 6 mins from Waverly Station on foot.
We booked the lowland suite for a 4 day visit in Edinburgh. Great location in the city and friendly staff. The lowland suite was a great room(suite) with big space, which we enjoyed very much. Big bathtub was used everyday. Views out at the Calton hill. Breakfast was priced at 25£. If it wasn't included, we would have eaten out. Good breakfast, but for 25£ its a no. Two things we thought were on the negative side: The bathroom was big and nice. But there were lots of minor faults. A lot of cracks in the tiles and the grouting around the tiles. The bathroom didn't "feel as luxury" as rest of the suite. Number two: A long walk to the room. We have to go 2 floors up, throught the snug bar, for then take the elevator 4 floors down.
Lovely Marriott property at a good value - wonderful front desk staff . So helpful and friendly .Rooms are nicely appointed with all amenities needed. Autograph hotels are so lovely each one different . Walking distance to all the sites as well as train just a few blocks. We hope to return soon
