Sheraton opens new-look Edinburgh hotel
BY Pete Hayman

Sheraton Hotels and Resorts has continued its USD6bn (EUR4.6bn, £3.7bn) international revitalisation with the reopening of the Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa in Edinburgh, UK.

The property - located in the centre of the Scottish capital – has benefited from a multi-million dollar refurbishment, which included the creation of a new restaurant and bar.

Facilities at the hotel also include the six-storey One Spa, which is described as one of the most advanced city spas in Europe and covers 35,000sq ft (3,252sq m) of floorspace.

One Spa offers a range of treatments, including a menu of ayuverdic-inspired services that have been devised by spa therapist Jamie Chalmers - Rasayana at One.

The spa includes 17 treatment rooms, a rooftop hydropool and a thermal suite containing a hammam; an aroma grotto; a rock sauna; a bio sauna; a laconium; a tepidarium; and lifestyle showers.

Elsewhere within the One Spa area is a 19m infinity-edge swimming pool on the top floor of the building and Cleopatra Baths - individual hydrobaths offering underwater massages. Products used at One Spa are supplied by ESPA and LI'TYA.

Sheraton Hotels and Resorts global brand leader Hoyt Harper said: "We have spent the last few years renovating and rebuilding one of the hotel industry's most iconic brands.

"As one of our flagship hotels, the newly renovated Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa in Edinburgh showcases our commitment to making the brand an unparalleled leader in the hospitality sector."
