The multi-million dollar renovations at Edinburgh have focused on giving the guest rooms, meeting spaces, and lobby a "modern Scottish look"—as well as the opening of a new restaurant and bar (pictured). Other amenities like the the new Sheraton Club Floor, free WiFi in the lobby, and the holistic Sheraton Fitness program, will all remain constant in future Sheraton hotels.
Wale further explained:
"We’ve completely stripped out the inside of the hotel and taken it back to its shell.
In effect, we’ve built a new hotel within the Sheraton. It was 25 years old and so required investment in plant and equipment, such as air conditioning, but it has also meant we’ve been able to bring new technology to the hotel."
All of this counts as part of Sheraton's worldwide
domination enhancement goal, and, we must admit, we're curious to see how some of these "Sheratons Of The Future" turn out, like the Sheraton Kiev Olympiysky and the 3,863-room Sheraton Macao.
