Hilton Worldwide has opened its fourth Doubletree by Hilton property in Scotland.

Formerly the Point Hotel, the 138-room Doubletree by Hilton Edinburgh City Centre is now welcoming guests after a £4.2 million renovation.

Located in the city’s old town, the property offers views of Edinburgh Castle, has a domed roof, a brasserie-style restaurant and a top floor penthouse.

The hotel also has a 24-hour fitness centre, free wifi, three meeting rooms and a 24-hour business centre.

John Greenleaf, global head of Doubletree by Hilton, said: “It is with great pride that we announce the opening of our first hotel in Edinburgh.”
