George Street was once home to a sober collection of shops and financial institutions. Tigerlily was one of the first of many glittering hotels and nightspots to sprinkle party dust on the proceedings. Tigerlily doesn't sound very Scottish, but that's the point. It's an enclave for local thirty- and fortysomething professionals who aren't into the tartan-and-whisky charm of their forebears' haunts and want to party in a cool urban scene. So far, the hotel guests follow suit—trendy and willing to drop a bit extra for a stylish weekend break. The top three floors house 39 white and beige rooms with curtains, chairs, and cushions in contrasting colors, such as turquoise and brown, or moss-green and purple. In addition to the plasma TVs, free Wi-Fi, and iPods, suites also have remote-control fireplaces and portable PlayStations. Some of the smaller suites are oak-paneled, which works well with the high Georgian ceilings, but one has dramatic black walls, a retro hanging basket chair, and even black (perfumed!) toilet paper from Portugal. The Georgian Bar is a high-glamour, feminine affair with fuchsia seating and a white quartz bar—try the organic contemporary afternoon tea. A large modern space at the back of the building has been cleverly divided into intimate spaces, including two glass-ceilinged courtyards, a sexy black bar, and a restaurant serving a contemporary menu loaded with seafood and dessert platters perfect for sharing.
