We really enjoyed our stay at The Howard. We arrived very early because of our overseas flight, so our room wasn't ready yet. But, we were welcomed graciously, served coffee and given maps and a quick overview of the city so we could occupy ourselves...More
Even before we arrived, the hotel exceeded expectations! I booked a non-refundable advance rate and then needed to change it when my friend had to change her dates - I called them and "no problem". A revised reservation was sent the next day.

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

According to google maps we are 15 minutes walk from Waverly Bridge. There is a good public transport link from the train station to the hotel. The local bus services 23 and 27 will get you here in under 10 minutes.
