News in brief:
Edinburgh gains a new Hilton
The Carlton Hotel in Edinburgh, previously a Barcelo, reopened as the Hilton Edinburgh Carlton hotel last week after a £17 million renovation. It becomes the 16th Hilton Group property in Scotland.
The hotel has 211 rooms and there is an Executive Lounge. This may make it an attractive option for anyone who took advantage of the recent Diamond status match as you would be guaranteed access.
The restaurant has been handed over to Marco Pierre White for a branch of his Steakhouse and Grill.
