Interior designer Helen Hooper of HH Interiors, who has previously worked with Jupiter Hotels on renovation projects across the UK, managed the project. Helen commented on the design scheme for the Mercure Edinburgh City Princes Street Hotel, “Edinburgh has such a distinct personality and cultural heritage that it was important to reflect this throughout the fabric of the hotel so guests feel closer to the spirit of the city in which they are staying. For this project, I pulled inspiration and design ideas from famous people in Edinburgh, iconic landmarks and quirky local stories.”
