Red Carnation Hotels’ is set to open its first hotel in Scotland on November 1. The new hotel is on the site of the old Royal Over-Seas League on Princess Street which closed in 2018 will be named after the street it sits on, 100 Princess Street.
The 30-room luxury hotel joins Red Carnation’s other 19th worldwide properties including Ireland’s Ashford Castle in Ireland, and it will have a residents-only Explorers’ Club which will offer guests a ‘quintessentially Scottish experience’ and signature local dishes.
The hotel, designed by Toni Tollman, Philippe Bonino, and Brian Brennan, features furnishings and artwork from local artists – including custom-made tartan by Araminta Campbell, and a central staircase with a hand-painted mural by Croxford and Saunders.
Jonathan Raggett, managing director of Red Carnation Hotels, has said, “It has been a dream of ours to open a hotel in Edinburgh for some time, and with the best address in the city, it was well worth the wait.”
