100 Princes Street
With meticulous care and attention to the listed building’s interior, we will embrace its history and heritage
Renowned for its passionate staff and thoughtful service, The Red Carnation Hotel Collection is to open a hotel in Scotland for the first time, with the aim of making it the number one hotel in Edinburgh. We plan to respectfully renovate 100 Princes Street, in front of Edinburgh Castle, transforming it into a highly exclusive retreat on Edinburgh’s most famous street.
With uninterrupted views of Edinburgh Castle, 100 Princes Street will replicate the boutique atmosphere of sister hotel 41, the most-loved hotel in London and TripAdvisor’s number one hotel in the English capital for over 10 years.
With meticulous care and attention to the listed building’s interior, we will embrace its history and heritage, using the finest local artisans and suppliers. 100 Princes Street will reopen in 2022 as Red Carnation Hotels’ 19th property worldwide, with 30 exceptional bedrooms and an Executive Lounge overlooking the Castle.
