Hyatt Hotels dock at Edinburgh Marina

Hyatt Hotels have been selected to operate a new spa and conference hotel at Edinburgh Marina, centrepiece of a newly formed 340-berth dock.

The 187 room Hyatt Regency will include a two-bedroom presidential suite as well as 98 serviced apartments as well as an obligatory restaurant and bar.

Guests will eb enticed through the doors with the lure of a 20,000sq/ft health spa and fitness centre, a 10,000sq/ft conference & banqueting centre all overlooking the marina.

Guido Fredrich, Hyatt’s regional vice president development, Europe, remarked: “I am thrilled that we will be opening our first hotel in Edinburgh, as part of the exciting new Edinburgh Marina development. The Edinburgh Marina is the perfect springboard for us to launch our brand in Scotland, opening a new era for the company and creating a great new tourism opportunity for Edinburgh.”

The complex has been designed by Wilson + Gunn and includes retirement flats as well as a health hub and marina infrastructure.

I am feeling very positive looking at this. This area and the whole area as a whole has been really unloved and it's in a lovely waterfront location.

I like the design, definitely fits into the surroundings and it's significantly better than what is there now. Going to be a great place in the summer months!

It's positive that things seem to be moving forward at Granton again, but this feels like a very very very mid-00s hubris development. Are people really going to want to go to Granton for this kind of experience?
