Description The Howard
- The Howard is an intimate and discreet luxury 5-star hotel which occupies three Georgian townhouses in a super-convenient location in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town.
The Howard is classically elegant both outside and in, and has just 18 luxury rooms and suites, named after Edinburgh streets.
In keeping with the character of the building, we have used rich fabrics, oil paintings and opulent furnishings to make the hotel deeply comfortable, a 5-star home-from-home. You will quickly feel as though you have lived here forever.
A key feature of the service at our 5 star Edinburgh hotel is the butler - actually a team of butlers, who take care of everything from car parking to ironing to late-night room service to theatre bookings. You will find them very useful, whatever your reason for being in Edinburgh.
The Howard has its own intimate restaurant, The Atholl. This was originally intended as a dining room just for guests, but proved so popular with local residents - especially for our famous afternoon tea - that it has grown into a destination restaurant in its own right. It only seats 14, however; so don't forget to book.
Pre-dinner drinks and nightcaps are served in our drawing room - a lovely space with curving, barrel-shaped walls and deep knole sofas to sink into after a hard day's shopping or sightseeing in Edinburgh.
