Marriott Hotel

Maybury is an area on the western edge of Edinburgh, Scotland, near South Gyle and Ingliston, named after the civil engineer Sir Henry Maybury (1864–1943).

Dominated by a major road junction, the most notable feature is the Maybury Roadhouse, opened in 1936 and one of Edinburgh's finest examples of Art Deco architecture.[1] It was converted into a casino in the late 1990s.[2] The casino has retained many art deco features within the building and has been featured in the recent Greatest Scot series on Scottish TV.

The area is residential in the north east/east and commercial in the south and west.

There is also a large Marriott chain hotel here (previously The Royal Scot), and The Gyle Shopping Centre is nearby.
