The Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel – formerly the Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square – has opened in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Overhauled by London-based studio Goddard Littlefair, who also led the Principal's award-winning £25m (US$32.7m, €29.1m) outfitting in 2017, the hotel features 184 rooms and 15 suites, plus a spa, gym, and BABA bar.

Other offers at the Grade II-listed retreat include in-room yoga mats and free fitness classes.

Managed by luxury hospitality company International Hotels Group (IHG), which last year lodged plans to revamp the hotel, Kimpton Charlotte Square is the first property from the hotelier to launch in Scotland and the second to open in the UK.

"We are very excited to build our presence in the luxury market in Scotland as we introduce the Kimpton brand," said Karan Khanna, managing director of IHG's UK and Ireland division.

She added: "Edinburgh has a real demand for a lifestyle luxury brand and I'm confident that Kimpton's relaxed approach to luxury will suit the market well."

Johann Scheeper, general manager at the Kimpton Charlotte Square, commented: "Our hotel will offer a vibrant Scottish service full of charm and personality, in one of the world’s most historic cities."

IHG, which currently boasts a global portfolio of 345 hotels, is also due to roll out new venues in Glasgow and Manchester by the end of the year.
