Hotel management company Redefine|BDL Hotels (RBH) has been appointed to operate a 160-bedroom Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh West hotel, which is set to open in the summer.
The hotel is being developed next to Oriam, Scotland's Sports Performance Centre on the Heriot Watt University campus.
Owned by the Polocom Group, the property is being built using a modular system it has used on numerous other hotel developments, including Citizen M Bankside and Citizen M Tower of London.
The new hotel is expected to accommodate many of the leading sportsmen and women working at Oriam. It will feature a bar, bistro and shop alongside three meeting rooms.
The Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh West will be the fifth hotel in the city for RBH, which already operates Princes Street Suites, the Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh, DoubleTree by Hilton Edinburgh and Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh City Centre.
RBH operates a portfolio of 56 hotels, some operating as independent properties and others under various brands owned by InterContinental Hotels Group, Hilton, AccorHotels, Marriot International, Best Western and Wyndham.
