Travellers Experience Edinburgh's Best Events All Year Long at Premier Aparthotel

From Golf Tourneys to Arts Festivals, the Residence Inn Edinburgh Invites Guests to See It All

EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND--(Marketwired - Dec 8, 2014) - Edinburgh attracts visitors for many reasons. But no matter if you come for the history, the golf or the sheer beauty of this capital city, its many events will entice you to stay. And only the Residence Inn Edinburgh, with its spacious suites and extended-stay capabilities, lets you make the most of all the things to do and see, no matter how long you're in town for.

As one of the newest and most up-to-date extended-stay hotels in Edinburgh's city centre, the property makes it easy for guests to catch the Six Nations rugby championships, which pit Europe's best teams against one another. This year Scotland will host Wales, Italy and Ireland at Murrayfield Stadium on 15 February, 28 February and 21 March, 2015. And whether guests stay for one or all three, the highs and lows of each match are just 10 minutes away from the hotel.

Spring brings warmer climes, verdant landscapes and, on 30 and 31 May, the annual Edinburgh Marathon Festival where runners and spectators can join in seven different races throughout town. The heart-pounding action is followed up one month later by the Royal Highland Show. Scheduled from 18 to 21 June, the event features entertainment, shopping, kid-friendly activities and, of course, plenty of agricultural news, all within a half-hour drive of the property.

Just as the hotel is known for its inviting Edinburgh suites that feature complimentary Wi-Fi, well-appointed kitchenettes and clearly defined zones for living, working and sleeping, the city is known for its golf. Fortunately for visitors this summer, those suites are the perfect place to base yourself from to make it easy to see all the birdies and bogeys of the country's biggest tournaments. The Scottish Open at Gullane Golf Club (9 to 12 July) and the Open Championship at St Andrews (12 to 19 July) not only feature the biggest names in golf, they're conveniently scheduled so that visitors can see both tournaments while enjoying the home-away-from-home comforts (including a fitness centre, complimentary daily breakfast and laundry facilities) of the apartment hotel.

Not long afterwards, the renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival (7 to 31 August) brings arts and culture to the entire city with thousands of shows throwing the spotlight on both emerging and established talent in everything from dance to drama.

City-wide events like the Fringe and Winter Wonderland, where festivals, markets and events dominate the streets between November and December, are easily accessed from this top choice among Edinburgh hotels near the Royal Mile. And visitors may just stay all December to take part in the Hogmanay Street Party on New Year's Eve. Live bands and DJs entertain thousands of joyful revellers in what is one of the friendliest, most international NYE bashes in the world. And the Residence Inn Edinburgh puts visitors in the heart of it all.
