ExploreSt James Quarter


Set to open in winter 2023, the W Edinburgh will mark W Edinburgh’s debut in Scotland and bring the brand’s unique spin on luxury to the city.

The hotel will be situated in the heart of St James Quarter, offering a vibrant city centre hub for international visitors and locals alike.

The W Edinburgh is set to welcome guests and diners into a decadent and sophisticated space, with award-winning architecture and interior design by the renowned Jestico + Whiles, in conjunction with Allan Murray Architects.

The 12-storey hotel, featuring stylish guestrooms, stunning suites and an Extreme Wow Suite (the W brand’s interpretation of the Presidential Suite), will encompass the festival spirit of Edinburgh with its striking exterior façade adding a contemporary twist to the city’s ever-changing skyline.

The hotel’s rooftop spaces will bring energy and flare to Edinburgh’s night life with a buzzing destination bar, chef’s table and outdoor terrace, offering guests and locals incredible 360-degree panoramic views of the historic skyline.

Upmarket fusion restaurant SUSHISAMBA will also open its doors in St James Quarter, occupying the rooftop levels of the hotel and offering a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian culture and cuisine.

The hotel’s AWAY® Spa will offer W Edinburgh’s signature health and lifestyle experiences. Guests will also be treated to the brand’s iconic Whatever/Whenever® service philosophy that promises whatever they want, whenever they want it.

An ideal central city venue for meetings and events, W Edinburgh will provide two levels of ultra-modern meeting and event space, including five meeting rooms along with WIRED, a 24-hour business centre.
