Sir Chris Hoy spent a couple of nights in The Edinburgh Grand when he was in the capital to attend a presentation ceremony for his friend and MND charity campaigner Doddie Weir. Sir Chris regularly returns to his home town of Edinburgh to visit friends and family, and will often stay at the hotel residence which, restored and developed by Chris Stewart Group, is now run by CSG’s operational business Lateral City.

Asked what impressed Sir Chris most about The Edinburgh Grand, he said:

The attention to detail. There are lots of nice five star hotels, but it’s the little things here that impress me, especially when I’m staying with my family. It feels like a home away from home.
