Ronald Little, General Manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh City Centre said, “As an iconic venue boasting panoramic views across the city and beyond, The Penthouse has been a popular choice for both business and leisure events; not to mention featuring in movies and hosting political party leaders and prime ministers. As such, it is with great delight that we announce that we are investing in the complete refurbishment of the venue.

“This will ensure that the Penthouse ‘home of SKYbar Edinburgh’ will continue to be one of the best venues in the city for an array of special events. The new design and layout will make the venue even better with a focus on delivering an exceptional experience to all our guests.”

The project will see new flooring both in the venue but also on the Terrace with a custom-built BBQ for summer in Edinburgh, as well as to enhance the cosiness of the terrace in all weather. The new layout has been built around the guest journey and the design features have come from hotel staff suggestions along with regular customers. This has been a key factor in everything that will showcase in the final product.

In addition to the warm DoubleTree Cookie welcome, the hotel provides a full complement of services and DoubleTree by Hilton brand amenities, including the Wake Up DoubleTree Breakfast, an assortment of gourmet in-room tea and coffee offerings and a refreshing array of the Crabtree & Evelyn natural skin and body care line.
