More about The Principal Edinburgh George Street

An overview

The Principal Edinburgh George Street (formally known as The George Hotel) is near the city’s business district and has many local attractions within walking distance, including the famous Edinburgh Castle, Princess Street Gardens, and Holyrood Palace. Interior architects like Goddard Littlefield have created a sense of restored grandeur by means of sympathetic restoration, simple detailing, and the use of rich materials.
