UK: SACO’s design-led aparthotel brand Locke has opened its second location, on Edinburgh’s George Street.

The property features 72 studios over six floors, the result of a complete restoration of a Georgian building by New York architects Grzywinski+Pons.
Locke Hotels says "the property's private and public spaces have been created to subtly channel Edinburgh's unique personality; ranging from the spirits offering, artwork, design and uniforms, to the ethos and culture. At the heart of the building is Hyde & Son, Eden Locke's third wave coffee bar by day, and stylish wine and cocktail bar by night, offering a carefully curated selection of wines and artisan spirits".

Eric Jafari, Eden Locke Development's managing director, said: "We're honoured for Edinburgh to be the home of our second Locke. This city is a natural destination for our concept: historic, progressive, creative, understated and dynamic, much like we aspire Eden Locke to be.  We aim for Locke to be an effective representation of Edinburgh - a destination that creatively champions the new & old.  While Edinburgh has traditionally been recognised as a historic destination, we believe its creative & entrepreneurial spirit should also be celebrated."

"Our research has revealed that modern urban travellers want more than a comfortable night's stay. They want to immerse themselves in the local culture and they want their lodging to facilitate this experience, whether it's for a weekend or a week," he added.

The first Locke property, Leman Locke, opened in London's Whitechapel in October 2016. Further aparthotels are planned in London, Dublin and Manchester.
