Edinburgh Hotel Puts Guests Within Swinging Distance of Scotland's Best Golf Tournaments

Travellers Enjoy Easy Access to the Biggest Golf Events From the Edinburgh Marriott Hotel

EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2014) - With this year's Ryder Cup disappearing in the rearview mirror, golf enthusiasts are already looking ahead to the next big event scheduled to sweep across Scotland's legendary greens. And while those tournaments -- the Scottish Open and the British Open -- won't take place until next summer, the truly devoted are already marking their calendars. Helping them make their golf trips a reality is the Edinburgh Marriott Hotel, where indulgent amenities and convenient access translate to an above-par experience.

Scheduled for two consecutive weeks in July 2015, the Scottish and British Opens will play out at Gullane Golf Club (9th to 12th July) and St Andrews (12th to 19th July), respectively. Travellers can spot every bunker and catch every bogey, however, when they stay at this luxury hotel in Edinburgh.

A premier destination among hotels near Edinburgh Airport, the property is just 30 minutes away from the Gullane Golf Club and slightly above an hour away from St Andrews. As a result, travellers spend less time commuting from the airport to their hotel and more time soaking up the sun and swings on the golf course. Plus the hotel offers complimentary car parking on site with easy access to the motorway. And its position outside Edinburgh's city centre saves travellers at least half an hour in drive time to either location.

In addition to its convenient geography, this 4-star hotel in Edinburgh welcomes guests with luxuries like a refreshing indoor pool, a well-appointed leisure club and a full menu of spa treatments at its Solas Spa Therapies. The hotel rooms, meanwhile, are some of the finest in Edinburgh having been outfitted with Egyptian-cotton bedding, high-speed Internet access, LCD televisions and, to ward off summer temperatures, air-conditioning.

Guests arriving ahead of or staying after the tournaments will also appreciate the hotel's close proximity to Edinburgh's city centre. Attractions like the Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyrood House give visitors a palpable sense of the city's history, while other sights (think the Edinburgh Zoo and the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre) reveal Scotland's modern side. All of it, of course, is as appealing as a day spent in the company of the world's finest golfers. No wonder then that it is already time to start planning for July 2015.
