Fraser Suites Edinburgh is set in a stunning1750s sandstone building featuring a historic Victorian façade, high ceilings and ornate cornicing. Formerly home to the Edinburgh City Council, careful restoration has protected its interiors, allowing residents to experience the epitome of modern living in a fascinating historical setting.
Fraser Suites Edinburgh is strategically located in the heart of the city centre on St Giles Street, just off the city’s famous Royal Mile. Renowned for superb views of Princes Street, it is within walking distance to Edinburgh’s key attractions which include the Royal Mile, Edinburgh’s Old Town with an eclectic mix of shops, pubs, restaurants and historical monuments; Princes Street, the city’s main shopping street; Scotland’s most recognised icon, the impressive Edinburgh Castle; Arthur’s Seat; and the National Gallery of Scotland. It is also only minutes away from Edinburgh’s Central Business District and a short 20-minute drive from the Edinburgh Airport.
Capturing the spirit of the city’s illustrious history, one of the building’s key features is a rare 100-year-old stained glass panel, though previously unknown, came to light during renovation work. Bearing the inscription Vivendo Discimvs (Latin for ‘By Living We Learn’), the motto used by Sir Patrick Geddes who was celebrated across the world for his innovative thinking in the fields of urban planning and education, the special stained glass panel is known as the Sir Patrick Geddes Window and is a key feature in one of Fraser Suites Edinburgh’s top of the range suites – the Princes Suite.
