In a listed 1892 building within the Scottish capital’s financial district, this 138-bedroom DoubleTree by Hilton can handle anything from high-level pow-wows to conferences for 200. In between times, guests can break out, unwind or just catch up on emails (via the free Wi-Fi) in the Monboddo bar. Open daily from 8am until late, the newly refurbished space retains its art-deco stylings while offering itself for networking, drinks receptions, business lunches and coffee meetings. The £5 express lunch menu gets you a choice of sandwich or panini, with your choice of filling, and soup of the day or fries. There’s an afternoon tea menu too, with the option for a takeaway coffee and cupcake.
