An Ascend Hotel Collection Member
Welcome to The Howard's official site.
The Howard - An Ascend Hotel Collection Member is an intimate and discreet 5 star luxury Edinburgh 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 our luxury Edinburgh 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 collection 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.
Our luxury hotel in Edinburgh city centre also 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 properly sophisticated, luxury restaurant. It only seats 14 however; so don't forget to book.
Pre-dinner drinks and nightcaps are served in the hotel 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.
The Howard luxury hotel is also a popular Edinburgh wedding venue , being able to accommodate up to 30 people for an intimate Edinburgh wedding with exclusive use packages.
