Neighbourhood
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

I have booked a room on 14-15/8. Do I need to reserve a car park space in advanced if I drive a car. Thanks.
Sorry, I don't know as I used public transport and taxis also. I would contact reception and ask them, they are very helpful. Sorry I couldn't be of more help to you.

It is how far from station and rams to reach it?
The closest station to EQ2 is Haymarket, but Waverley is 26 minutes' walk away or bus 1 or 34 will take you there in 15 minutes. A taxi will take approximately 13 minutes.
