Two iconic Edinburgh hotels have confirmed their new branding after being bought over by the IHG group.

InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, the largest luxury hotel brand in the world, will be returning to the historical Principal Edinburgh George Street and will be re-branded as an ‘InterContinental’ by late next year.

The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square, originally built in 1791 and still known by most as The Roxburghe, overlooks one of the city’s prettiest garden squares and is set to become a Kimpton Hotel early in 2019.

The plans were revealed via a newsletter to events planners this week but has not been officially announced by the company.
