2 Greenside Pl., Edinburgh, Scotland EH1 3AA, United Kingdom

Built around the neo-Gothic façade of a 19th-century church, the Glasshouse Hotel contrasts old stone with contemporary, metal-framed glass walls. Attracting such former guests as Meryl Streep and the White Stripes, the 65 guest rooms are designed in a minimalist style with neutral tones, duck-down duvets, and glass bathrooms with heated floors. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook New Town or the two-acre rooftop terrace, which has shaded white furniture, views of Calton Hill, and a fragrant garden planted with juniper and lavender. The hotel also includes an indoor fire pit, an honesty bar, and a dining room serving a full Scottish breakfast.
