The Rutland Hotel, housed in the 19th-century home of Joseph Lister (the man we can all thank for founding antiseptic surgery), is located at the west end of Princes Street, an ideal central base in the city. The property was updated in 2008, which added glamour to the 12 individually decorated guest rooms with extravagant colors and baroque design. Wi-Fi, plasma-screen TVs, iPods, goose-down duvets, and Egyptian bed linens ensure a comfortable stay, but the real stars are the views to Edinburgh Castle from rooms 5 and 11. The first-floor restaurant is called Kyloe (an old Scots word for cattle), and Scottish Borders beef takes pride of place on the menu. Party people can choose between the ground-floor cocktail bar or a booth in the One Below lounge club in the basement.—Jonathan Trew
