Fodor's Expert Review Chester Hotel

59–63 Queen's Rd., Aberdeen, Aberdeen City, AB15 4YP, Scotland Fodor's Choice

Contemporary style meets original 19th-century architectural detail within this gracious hotel. The color scheme in the rooms and suites emphasizes muted gray, beige, and cream shades, which marks a welcome change from the omnipresent tartanry in this part of the world. Look out for original artwork by Scottish artist John Byrne in bedrooms and public areas, which include a swank cocktail bar. The on-site IX Restaurant is highly regarded.
