Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel opens in Edinburgh
IHG has opened the first Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in Scotland, Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel. The hotel is located in Edinburgh's Georgian New Town, a UNESCO world heritage site and has 184 rooms and 15 suites which are part of seven interconnecting Georgian townhouses.
Last year IHG and Covivio entered an agreement to rebrand and operate 12 hotels operating under the Principal and De Vere brands. The Principal Charlotte Square is the second of these properties to rebrand as a Kimpton, following the opening of Kimpton Fitzroy London in October 2018.
The Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel marks IHG's return to the luxury market in Edinburgh, as its first branded luxury hotel in Scotland in over a decade. 2019 will also see Kimpton hotel openings in Glasgow and Manchester and an InterContinental Hotels & Resorts opening in Edinburgh.
