The Edinburgh Collection Acquires The Tune Hotel

22nd of June, 2017 | Posted in Edinburgh, Hotel News Email Article | Print Article

The Edinburgh Collection, a member of Palm Holdings, revealed it had acquired The Tune Hotel in Edinburgh last month.

The 189 room hotel has now been re-branded as the Haymarket Hub Hotel due to its proximity
to the city’s Haymarket Station and it also now offers enhanced technology including enhanced facilities for travellers. For instance, guests can now stay connected throughout their visit with handy smart phones – the first to arrive in Scotland – offering free data and free UK and internationals calls to 10 countries including Australia, China, India & USA. This means they can stay in touch inside and outside the hotel. The smart phones will enable users to access the latest city news, events, discover the best restaurants and bars and explore the capital using Google maps.

There are also plans to expand the lounge area with an Illy Café which will offer plenty of USB ports and charging points for mobile phones and laptops.

Ricky Kapoor, Managing Director of The Edinburgh Collection, says, “This new addition to our Edinburgh portfolio will enable us to further meet the demands of a variety of visitors and travellers to Scotland’s capital.  The Haymarket Hub Hotel is about being connected, exploring the city and recharging, an exciting new concept which will satisfy even the most discerning of today’s modern travellers including the Millennials.”

Sheetal Kapoor, Group CEO, Palm Holdings, added, “We are extremely excited with this UK acquisition as it follows on the heels of the purchase of the Holiday Inn Orlando SW Celebration Area only six weeks ago and takes us one step  closer to achieving a total room count in excess of 2000 rooms.”

The Edinburgh Collection is a portfolio of hotels in Edinburgh which includes The Howard Hotel; The Channings Hotel; The Old Waverley; and Holyrood apartHOTEL serviced apartments. The new acquisition brings the number of bedrooms at the Edinburgh Collection to over 400.
