Holiday Inn Edinburgh
Next to London, Edinburgh has more FTSE companies than anywhere else in Britain. It is also the second most popular city for leisure and business tourism both areas in which we at Holiday Inn Edinburgh excel. We have two superbly equipped hotels in Edinburgh, one in Craigleith and the other adjacent to Edinburgh Zoo. Central for Edinburghs business, commercial and tourist districts, they offer superlative facilities for corporate and leisure visitors alike.
We at Holiday Inn Edinburgh have a wide choice of fully-serviced meeting rooms, able to accommodate up to 140 delegates. Outside the conference area, our spacious guest rooms and leisure facilities offer all youd expect from a quality 4-star hotel. For canny Scottish business managers, we offer a range of day and overnight deals for delegates, while fathers of brides can enjoy special discounted wedding rates
Edinburgh is one of the top tourist destinations in Europe, its landmarks, cultural events and yearly arts festival needing no introduction. The Edinburgh Festival, Tattoo and Hogmanay festivities see our Holiday Inn Edinburgh hotels swell to capacity, but the city has something to offer at any time of year. Edinburgh Castle, Jacobs Ladder, Holyrood House, Arthurs Seat and the shops and restaurants of the Royal Mile are eternally popular. The city has an eclectic mix of museums, galleries and arts venues, with a constantly changing events calendar.
Edinburgh is one of the worlds top tourist destinations, but its also a hub of industry, commerce and education. Ahead of London, it has been named the most desirable place to live in the UK, and the Best Small City of the Future for 2010 2011. The economy is reliant on service sector industries, such as health, education, finance, retail, leisure, hospitality and the arts. However, the famous university dispenses a constant stream of graduate entrepreneurs, and science, technology, engineering and IT are also important. The air and sea ports bring further prosperity.
From all this, another important industry has evolved that of business tourism. Edinburgh is the second most popular city for international conferences, and 36th in the world, according to the International Congress and Convention Association. Visit Britain named Edinburgh top value-for-money in a poll of international conference cities. The Edinburgh Conference Bureau, established to promote Edinburgh to companies outside the area, has named us at Holiday Inn as one of the top hotel chains for arranging meetings in Edinburgh something our clients are happy to endorse.
