Hilton Edinburgh Carlton

If you’re looking for a stunning venue right in the heart of Edinburgh for a memorable corporate event, you really should look at this! With imposing Victorian architecture and a fabulous city centre location on the world famous Royal Mile, The Hilton Edinburgh Carlton is an iconic link between Edinburgh’s Old and New Towns; in 2016 it saw an amazing transformation from its previous guise as one of the city’s top department stores to become an outstanding venue for private celebrations and corporate events of all kinds.

There are 7 fantastic event rooms to choose from; all are located on the first floor, and are swish and stylish with plenty of natural daylight, free high speed wifi, up to the minute audio visual equipment, LCD projectors and screens, and adaptable modular furniture. The largest space, the Highland Suite, measures a whopping 2,408 square feet and has capacity for 240 guests in theatre style or 250 for a standing reception. That gives you plenty of scope for a conference, product launch, or presentation!

Three smaller spaces are still big enough to seat 60 in theatre style and are perfect for training sessions or for meetings for up to 30 executives; slightly smaller again, Arthur’s Seat can easily accommodate 50 in theatre style or 30 in boardroom style. The Blackford and Braids Boardrooms are perfect for those more intimate meetings for up to 10 executives. Experienced staff, flexible catering choices and reduced DDPs will help to make your event a resounding success.

For overnight stays there are 211 stylish rooms and suites, finished to a high standard with comfort and convenience in mind. Guests staying in Executive Rooms have exclusive access to the Executive Lounge for breakfast and refreshments throughout the day. For dinner visit the Marco Pierre Steakhouse & Grill for succulent steaks and popular classic dishes, or try the Nineteen Hundred Bar & Lounge for snacks and lighter bites. Head for the onsite fitness lounge if you over indulge and need to work off those extra calories!

The Hilton Edinburgh Carlton offers discounted parking at a car park close by; Waverley railway station is just a few minutes’ walk away, and Edinburgh International Airport is just over 8 miles away.
