Sales Manager

Funding Source:
  • Hotel Indigo Edinburgh

In the heart of the city, near the Castle, sits the Hotel Indigo® Edinburgh hotel, housed in five historic Georgian townhouses. Step through our doors into a chic, contemporary interior reflecting the neighbourhood’s history and Edinburgh’s many modern-day festivals. In your room, you’ll feel inherently immersed in this culture, thanks to locally inspired touches, with each floor highlighting a different side of the city’s rich history and modern-day gatherings. Explore the neighbourhood outside, then pop back in for a pint of locally brewed Innis & Gunn, or perhaps some afternoon tea.
